“The best restaurant on the island!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We love the food the price and the location, best on the island! Their breakfast, lunch and dinners are delicious and very reasonable. I have always found it very clean and friendly. If you stay at Tropical Paradise Hotel you will get a 10 % discount on your meals. The view is of the ocean. It is lovely.

“Food wasn't good and expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

My husband and I ate at Tropical Paradise because it was close to our hotel. We should have walked farther because it was a mistake to eat there. There was only one other couple eating there when we arrived. We should have known to go else where at that time. However, we sat down and proceeded to waste our money on a bad meal. I had a mango smoothie and fish kebabs with fries and slaw. My husband had a beer and snapper with rice and slaw. We shared chips and salsa. The mango smoothie wasn't good. The mango separated from the ice/water that was in the smoothie. It was weird. I've never had a smoothie separate like that. It wasn't tasty. Just bland and not refreshing. We were really looking forward to some good fish since we were on Caye Caulker. Unfortunately, the fish didn't taste good at all and was drenched with a bad tasting cilantro sauce. Even the french fries were really bland and weren't tasty. The service was also really slow and not too friendly. We waited over a half an hour for our food. The total price of our meal was $34 USD. The food didn't make us sick, it just wasn't a good price for the quality of food offered. Overall, you can find much cheaper and better meals elsewhere on the island.

“Killed fishes”

We had steak baracuda and whole snapper. It was good, but we dont understud, why the fishes were killed by anothers tastes. Because we like pure taste of the sea and seafood and fishes.

“Tropical Paradise Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

While in Caye Caulker, I stayed at the Tropical Paradise Hotel. They have a restaurant attached, and if staying at one of the properties, you get 15% any purchase. I ate breakfast there twice, lunch once and dinner once and the food and service was great.

“Good and Reasonable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

We ate here twice for dinner and once for breakfast. Dinner's included the fresh fish choices and chicken kabobs - both options were good but the fish was better. Plenty to eat! Try a bucket of beer and the cervechi with conch, really yummy! Breakfast options included eggs, Johnny Cakes and beans, typical Belizean fare but far more food at a much better price than eating on the beach nearer the "split".
