Suggestion: Check all restaurants in Esparanza for the days & nights they are open. Not all are open each night of the week. Belly Buttons is only open for BBQ Thursday- Sunday. Wednesday is Paella night with reservations required. We started out with 2 very delicious drinks from their drink menu. ( See photo ) Then we ate their wonderful BBQ!! Rivals any "BIG" city BBQ! We had the chicken & the ribs dinners & both were very very tasty!l The meals came with a choice of 2 sides. One of us had the mac/cheese ( fair ) & beans, the other, corn & slaw. You had a choice of 2 extra BBQ sauces. Here's to another fun dinner experience in an open-air restaurant across from the Malecon in "downtown" Esparanza. Loved the decorative night strings of lights! Nice causal dining on picnic tables. Our waitress was attentive & her suggestions helpful. Soon, every table was filled & people were waiting the night we visited! Love BBQ? Then eat it here!

Belly Buttons is an open air casual restaurant with great BBQ ribs! The staff & owner are very friendly. We also came back for breakfast a few days later. Best banana bread French toast I ever had.

In a pinch I don't mind picnic tables for dinner but that set the tone for the food and wine too. Dried up Paella and tasteless iceburg lettuce with dime store dressing. Sutter Home?

We went out to celebrate some unexpected good news while on vacation, and Belly Button's was a wonderful choice. All the folks working here were nice and personable with us, if a little on the slow side. Everyone except me had the paella, and they all were raving and then very full. I had the veggie quesadilla, and I am just going to say that it was the best quesadilla that I've ever had. We were a little surprised when the bill arrived, but it was very consistent with island prices. The view across the malecon was breathtaking as we watched the sunset. Belly Button's is a great choice!

Belly Buttons is a relaxed, tasty, casual food. It is a nice place to begin your day or have a delicious dinner on the weekends. Friendly staff and a great people watching spot!
