This place is located on the back side of the island inside the Belize Diving Services, so you need to seek it out but very well worth it, great staff and wonderful food too.
Take your friends or just make some new ones this is a fun place to hang out and beat the heat!

We've eaten here numerous times, and they've all been very good experiences. Both when quiet and when the bar/restaurant is full, the service has been terrific - attentive & pleasant and the food, first-class each/every time. We've had fish sandwiches, tacos, wings, chips & salsa, sweet potato fries and more, along with ice-cold Belikins and some rum-based drinks (hey, when in Rome!) make the restaurant side and bar both very good. Add in the locals that frequent here and you've got a real find. Easy to find, just a short stroll from the playing field. Get off the Front Street and enjoy what is sure to become a Caye Caulker destination!

We have been traveling through Mexico for the last 3 weeks and these were the best tacos... Especially when the are 2 bzl per taco. We got there for happy hour as well and got $3bzl local rum cocktails, $10bzl for 3 beers and $1 wings. The BBQ wings were the best and then we had both chicken and beef and they were exceptional. The waitress was very friendly and the place was full of locals... Can only be a good thing...

Bottom line is if you are in caye caulker on a Tuesday get to 88 west..

Had great food (try the lobster tacos) and the best frozen marguerita so far on the island. The service was really friendly & welcoming and during the evening we ended up chatting to two separate ex-pats who'd moved to the island - always a good sign when locals choose a restaurant. Seems like a bit of a hidden gem, so hope this review encourages more people to try it. We missed happy hour but could be a good place for early evening beer & cocktails.

We ate here several times during our vacation. Taco Tuesdays is great! $1 tacos and they are simply divine.
