The restaurant is beautiful, especially at night. We ate all of our meals outside and the temperature was always lovely, as was the food. Some people prefer to not get the meal package but we were very happy that we did. There are always specials and quite a variety of menu items. If you any special dietary needs, they go... More

Breakfast, lunch and dinner were included with our package and we were expecting average food with limited choices. Boy, were we wrong! The food was all home made prepared with local ingredients. Everything tasted so fresh. Loved the freshly made yogurt with granola in the morning (sour sop was a favorite) and the egg dishes. Lunch started with fruit salsa... More

The food can be hit or miss in Hopkins, but man Hamanasi hit the mark. It was by far the best meal we had all week. We were a party of seven and ordered Ginger Rum Chicken, Grilled Pork Chop, Fish Cakes, Beef Carpaccio, Seafood Bisque, Eggplant Parmigiana, and the Seafood Platter. All were great choices. The Fish Cakes were... More

The food we had for every meal as part of our package at Hamanasi was wonderfully prepared; fresh, delicious and a wide variety of choices to suit everyone. The fresh fish each day was phenomenol!

The restaurant is top notch and was just up the beach from the Almond Beach Resort where we stayed. The restaurant is located in the 2nd floor with an open balcony. Being elevated meant we could finally leave the mosquitoes and sand flies! The food was all wonderful and the cocktails creative and delish.

I cannot have words to describe how happy we were with the staff and the food of the restaurant. The continental breakfast has an amazing selection: cereals, organic homemade yogurt (OMG! Wonderful!), breads, cold cuts, boiled eggs, homemade jelly, cheese, fresh juices,and everyday they have a special roll/bread (the coffee cake is delicious!) They also have special eggs everyday and... More

I have stayed at this resort five times so have probably eaten lunch and dinner more than 60 times at this restaurant. Its changing menu and incredible fusion of flavors keep every meal a new experience. Sit outside and listen to the waves hitting the beach as you enjoy often locally sourced food - even from the resort's own carefully... More

The staff and food was amazing! There was a diverse menu for dinner, one side their standard menu and the other rotated every night. My favorite meal of the trip was the chicken, rice, and beans! The desserts were well presented.

Very delicious and diverse options for food. Would recommend trying the different daily specials, especially the traditional Belizean food options. We also loved the fresh salsa served. We ate here daily while staying at Hamanasi resort. The service was superb and the staff was always helpful and attentive.

Thank Cara S
