“Delicious food and familiar atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

If you stay some days in Caye Caulker, Belize, you can't miss this pretty place. Actually it's Liz and Michael's home, you just it great food in their dining room, watching tv and talking with them like old friends. Classic caribbean food, such as chicken, beans, potatoes, at a very low cost, but with a unique taste and friendly atmosphere!!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

The best food I've had during several days in Belize! Menu is limited to what "Mama Liz" is cooking that day, but whatever it is, you can bet it's the best available! One of our meals included freshly fried barracuda that was caught that day - delicious! If you don't like to sit and eat in heat, get it to go; you won't regret eating the delicious, authentic Belizean, and reasonably priced food Mama cooks up!!

“The best place to eat on the island!”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

Dinner at Mike and Liz´ is not just sitting down to eat a delicious, often freshly caught meal: it is about experiencing real local custom at the fairest of backpacker prices.

When I visited Caye Caulker, Liz and the family made me feel immediately at home by serving me Conch soup and equally delicious roast chicken on their front porch and in their own front room, respectively. There is no other place to eat on Caye Caulker which will make a traveller far away from home feel relaxed and welcome.

Asides from excellent cooking and a fun atmosphere, Liz and Mike are such genuinly kind people. I had a work-related project to do which involved me finding out about the local news- no easy feat on Caye Caulker, where the weekly newspaper is delivered by a man on the beach, IF you can find him! The family and I had a fantastic conversation about local issues and answered every question I had, even digging out past newspapers for me to take away.

Go to Mike and Liz´s place for dinner! And tell them I said hello :-)

“A brilliant way to get the real taste of Belize”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Liz's kitchen is the best place on the island if you want a truly local experience. She cooks up her dishes in the kitchen and serves them in her own dining room. There is plenty of chat and plenty of fun. Liz uses best quality local ingredients so her dish of the day is always a good one. Check out what she is cooking up on the menu board outside her house. She made a veggie dish for us and we loved it! If you overlook this one you are missing a treat!
