We planned on just hanging around the cruise port area for our stop in Belize City. There are a few different bars and restaurants, enough to keep you entertained for a few hours. This is at the far end of the terminal, away from the area that you exit from. You get a nice view of the cruise ships out in the ocean. They have reasonable food and cocktails. We had the conch fritters, which had a nice amount of actual conch in them and some kind of fried fish bites which were good, they were heavily fried, but the batter was tasty. The service was nice.

My wife and I made the Tender our first stop in Belize. What a fun place. We each had a very good drink and some chips and salsa.
We would recommend the Tender for anyone looking for a place to relax after a day shopping at the cruise port.

This restaurant was at the port of my cruise and was the last place we stopped before taking the 20 minute boat ride back to the ship docked further out into the ocean. What I liked about this place was the island music being played and its location right at shore with a beautiful ocean view. I had the stew chicken with rice and peas which was so delicious! There was a variety of local food choices on the menu including french fries and other American cuisine. The drinks were stirred just perfectly with a tropical flavoring to it. After we ate we sat for a while, people watching and enjoying the view. This restaurant was worth it and the servers were nice and friendly.

We really love seeing a 5-Star review and the staff were quite thrilled to read yours, thank you very much for the positive feedback!

We've also recently added a few more local food choices to our menu, next time you visit you should definitely try the barbecued whole snapper.

Cheers!

The food here was very good. It is an open air restaurant on the water with a very laid back atmosphere. I had the fish and chips which was very good and all the other food I saw looked great. They have a full bar (get a Belikin beer) with lots to choose from. This place is located with the cruise port and is one of three sit down restaurants. If you are looking for a decent place to just relax and grab a bite to eat this place is just right. Only downside is that they do not have high chairs.

Thank you very much for such a positive review!

We're glad you enjoyed the Fish & Chips, that is precisely why we source our fish fresh every day.
In response to your feedback we have acquired some highchairs and booster seats, hopefully we will have the opportunity to have you and your family in again soon.

Cheers!
