“Great view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

This was a fun place to relax and have some drinks mid day. Beautiful view! I was so relaxed that I didn't realize I had sat there staring in the blue ocean for an hour. Lovely place!

“Service and food terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Call it unlucky timing, but we got there as a group of 8 were being seated, we sat down and waited for a menu, then another big table arrived and all the attention was on them, still no menu. At least 10 minutes passed with no menu so we ended up going and getting some menus ourselves. The waiter came over shortly after and asked what we wanted, i ordered a chicken burger, girlfriend ordered the rainbow burger, order some coke's and waited.

Coke's came over quite quickly and were slammed down on the table. Considering there was a few big tables our food come out quite quick they were also slammed down by the waiter. The food tasted sub standard nothing really to like about it and was quite expenisve for what it was, not once were we asked about our meal or checked on. The bill came out and was also slammed down, we decided to go up to give them there payment so we could leave. Basically they were only interested in the big tables and the only thing going for this place is the location as its on the water.

“Loved it once, not so much twice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

During our stay at Caye Caulker, we ended up eating at Rainbow Grill twice. We loved it the first time, the food was excellent and the service was wonderful. When we went back a second time it was busier and the service was slow, disorganized, and frankly, not very polite. It seemed like our server had been recruited from the dish washing staff. He didn't seem to know quite what he was doing and he wrote our order down on a bar coaster instead of a notepad like all the other servers had. Perhaps we just happened to hit them when they were having a staffing issue. Rainbow Grill is right on the water, so it has nice views.

“Repeat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We have been to various Cayes in Belize. This includes many repat visits to Caya Cauker. On our recent visit we frequented Rainbow Grill and the overall quality was enough to have us return for a second dinner on this 3 night visit.

“Good food in a beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

We have been visiting Caye. Caulker for 15 years and have eaten at Rainbow Grill on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. The setting is the most spectacular on the island. The dining area is built out over the gin-clear water and is open on three sides , providing a magnificent view of the reef and waterfront area as well as providing good ventilation .
The food is quite good and well prepared. This service is always prompt and courteous
