“Fabulous local gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

This is a wonderful neighborhood place right on the main drag (Burns Avenue). This is a typical open aired wooden shack with a few tables scattered around, exactly what you want on a hot and dusty day in San Ignacio. They have excellent Belizean food and killer Indian food. I had the vindaloo which is, as both the waitress and the menu warned, very spicy. The flavor was excellent and authentic Indian spicy. Quite nice with a great hot kick which is washed away with a couple local beers. Our waitress is attentive and chatty, providing some additional local color to go with our food. The restaurant name (which means Let's Eat) says it all!

“Great local food and very friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Stopped for lunch on a Sunday since most other places were closed and was happy to have stumbled on this gem. Fresh fish rice and veggies were the special of the day. Cold drinks, local favorites (they offer a daily local specialty for $8 BZ Monday thru Friday), desserts and sweets. We tried a burger and fries and a grilled fish sandwich and both were really fresh and good. Good portion size. They offer lamb, steaks, fish and a great looking menu of other entrees for dinners. Hope to come back.

“Worthy of seconds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Great Food. Swift service. The environment of the place was great, even being on Burns Avenue. I had some lamb for dinner one night. It was sooo good. I came back for a hearty breakfeast the morning I was hitchhiking south, and noticed they sell beef jerky too!!! Worthy a seconds.

“Great dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

We had dinner here during our first night in San Ignacio. We ordered simple rice and beans with chicken breast, and it was phenomenal. The chicken was tasty and cooked perfectly, and the rice and beans were delicious. We found the restaurant from our LonelyPlanet guide book, and the place was filled with other tourists too.
