“Great food and value”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Open air with cold beer. The gas grill on the side walk in front that was heaped up and overflowing with lobsters was unexpected but it sure did taste good. My wife had the empanadas which were also amazing.

“Recommended but disappointing”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Other visitors raved about the restaurant. The meal was good but the service was horrible. We sat for two hours before we had food.

“You just have to try their Lobster Burrito!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

If you like lobster, be sure to visit Waruguma during lobster season. Their lobster burrito is as large as it is good. For that matter, all their lobster entrees are great. If you miss lobster season, you can get all the same entrees with shrimp, conch, and other local sea food. Waruguma is located in the heart of San Pedro just a few blocks north of the airport. Every time we visit Ambergris Caye, we have lunch and dinner there several times.

“Can't beat the food or the price.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The food here was excellent. We were going broke at the expensive tourist restaurants until we found Waruguma. The staff was friendly and gave us great advice on selecting unfamiliar food. We noticed that this place is also a favorite of Belizeans.

“Local Food at its Best”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We always ask everyone, "where do the locals eat", and Waruguma was recommended highly. The food was excellent. Don't be in a hurry because they cook everything fresh and that takes some time. Large portions are the norm and you better be hungry. You really should try it.
