Belize Restaurants
 

Travelers looking for high class dining experiences in Belize will not have too many options, however, restaurants are certainly not disappointing.

Some say the best way to choose a restaurant is to judge by the smells it produces. For those who want something a little clearer to choose between, it's easy to do. Most of Belize's restaurants are extremely laid back, and even the top-notch dining options rarely, if ever, require a jacket or tie. If you are looking for high class dining, however, the place to go is Ambergris Caye, which has become Belize's dining epicenter, and is home to many of the best restaurants.

Don't forget, however, that Belize has been heavily influenced by British culture in its restaurants. While coffee will almost undoubtedly be instant, tea is widely available. Further, travelers will want to observe proper etiquette when in Belize's restaurants. Reservations are not often necessary, but to ensure a spot at a particular restaurant for a special meal, travelers may want to make some.

Due to Belize's culinary diversity, travelers can find something suited to just about any taste. However, budget travelers should not assume that dining is inexpensive due to the restaurants laid back attitude. An inexpensive meal may cost as much as $10(USD), on the other hand, meals can be found for as little as $3(USD). Mid range meals may reach $20(USD), while more expensive meals rarely surpass $25(USD). Get to know about all the cuisines available in Belize in the following table.

Looking at the check vacationers will find an eight percent tax added to the cost of their meals. A service charge of 10 percent may be added as well. This service charge is for tipping, which is generally in the range of 10 to 15 percent. If there is a service charge added to the bill, no additional tip is necessary. However, if service was particularly attentive or good, a little extra tip is always welcome.
