Fido's Steak and Lobster

San Pedro | (501) 226-2056

Fido's Steak and Lobster is located toward the heart of San Pedro. Pleasantly surprising, this dining destination is not just American food and of course fish and chips, but we shouldn't forget they're also good at seafood.

An open air bar and grill, this is a spot where the party doesn't stop, the drinks are always flowing, and the food is always delicious.

The Smuggler's Den Restaurant

Corozal District | (501) 600-9723

The Smuggler's Den Restaurant

The Smuggler's Den Restaurant is a viable choice for guests thinking about spending some time visiting this area of Belize. In case you're wondering, Corozal is seven and a half miles (12 kilometers) to the south west. Determined not to be a "stale" choice, not only does this place offer American creations and one favorite, hamburgers, but it's also fawned-over for another favorite, pizza.

Laid back and friendly, Smuggler's is set inside a circular thatched roofed building that looks like a hut on the outside and your typical beach bar on the inside.

Wet Lizard

Fort George | (501) 610-4316

Wet Lizard

Wet Lizard, a part of Tourism Village, is located within Fort George, in the heart of Belize City. Although some delight in the general selection of American cuisine, this local spot is especially proud of their hamburgers and seafood.

Wet Lizard is always a busy spot with people eating, drinking, dancing, and having a good time. The second floor covered deck is favored thanks to its view of the Swing Bridge and the Harbor. Guests are encouraged to draw on the walls here, so grab some permanent ink and leave your mark.

Above Grounds Coffee House

Placencia | (501) 634-3212

Located near the heart of Placencia, Above Grounds Coffee House is a popular choice for people thinking about visiting this part of Stann Creek District. Visitors that want coffee will wholly love stopping here during a trip to Placencia.

In addition to coffee, espresso, cappuccino, and other specialty coffee beverages, you can also order teas, hot chocolate, organic juices, and a small offering of fresh baked goods. The homemade bagels are especially good.

Casa Picasso

San Pedro | (501) 226-4443

Positioned near the middle of San Pedro, Casa Picasso is a logical choice that's worth considering if you're going to be spending time seeing this town and its surroundings. In the mood for tapas? If you say yes, remember the name Casa Picasso and make it a priority on your agenda.

The restaurant is a cozy, sophisticated spot where most people choose to dine in the courtyard surrounded by trees decked with twinkling lights and offering an elegant feel.
