The Meating Place

Belmopan | (501) 820-2031

The Meating Place, which is on the premises of Roaring River Golf & Accommodation, is located in Central Belize, in Belize; 19 miles (30 and a half kilometers) to the east-northeast of Belmopan. Although some delight in the general selection of Spanish cuisine, this visitor favorite is especially proud of their chicken and seafood.

At the Meating Place is where "quality over quantity" rings true. The breakfast menu is limited to eggs, toast, french toast, and a B.L.T. served up with orange juice and coffee. You can come back for dinner and every time you'll find a rib eye, pork chops, shrimp, fish fillet, and chicken available. Dessert, meanwhile, is your choice of ice cream flavors.
