Description: Top quality seafood and barbeque in Punta Gorda. Relax at the only restaurant and bar around that is completely over the sea. Fresh meals are cooked to order with sustainably caught seafood; fish are often caught by Asha (the owner/head chef) himself. Our kitchen serves hearty dishes prepared with healthy ingredients. Listen to various styles of live music – including Creole and Garifuna drumming, Mayan marimba, and international performances – all while enjoying the Caribbean sea breeze with a view of the Guatemala highlands from across the bay. Exceptional service and competitive prices. Business practices are very environmentally friendly. We cater to all needs; including large groups, food delivery, and a variety of events. Please call ahead for large groups, to-go orders, directions, or our music schedule. Marine tours, sustainable-fishing classes, sunset-booze cruises, and cooking lessons are available.

I didn't know what to expect from this little shack on stilts over the ocean but it was a great experience. The cook came out and discussed the dishes with us, made recommendations, even suggesting that certain dishes weren't so good that evening. The food was excellent.

Asha's Kitchen serves the best fish we had during our Belize travel. The menu is a big billboard where you choose the type of fish you like, the preparation style and the different side dishes. I had fried lionfish with salad and white rice. My boyfriend chose the fried barracuda with rice and beans and coleslaw (each meal 25 BZD). Both fish were so delucious! And also the side dishes were very good. For drinks we had the Belikin Chocolate Stout that we like so much.

Not to forget: The waiter was very nice. The place itself is basic but you can sit outside on the dock over the sea and see the lights from Guatemala when its dark.

Nice setting and great folks. I thought it was a bit too pricey but was really glad to have tried their lionfish.

The food was delicious and plentiful for the price. We loved that they served lionfish. The view right on the waterfront was wonderful.
