we ate here our first night on the island and go going back. The owners are very friendly, accommodating and the food was really good. The waitress and bartender were very nice and truly provided customer service.

I kept driving past Black Orchid as I drove into town during my stay in San Pedro. Finally, I wound up at the bar one night and had a crazy delicious drink that Barry, the attentive bartender, said was their signature drink. The final ingredient fans out in the drink resembling the fan coral in the ocean at the Marine Reserve! Classy and fun!

The next night I joined some friends from the resort and we had an amazing meal. The restaurant was busy - as they should be for the quality they offer - and the owner and staff kept apologizing. There was nothing to apologize for! The service was attentive and personal, the food was outstanding, the ambiance relaxing, and even the geckos chimed in! We truly wanted for nothing! Definitely check out Black Orchid. You won't regret it. And, be sure to get the bacon wrapped stuffed mushrooms!

This restaurant is worth the trip south of San Pedro Belize. The mahogany decorating is amazing, our dinner was excellent and the owners, Tom and Judyann are gracious and wonderful. We will certainly be back on our next trip to Ambergris Caye.

As with other people who have found the Black Orchid, my husband and I stumbled on to this hidden gem due to renting nearby. From the great food, the tri-tips were great as was the preparation of our catch for us, to the excellent staff, we were made to feel very welcome. This is a must for good, tasty food.
A definite must if you are staying nearby and worth the short trip from town.
