While on a rainforest vacation in Belize, you’re bound to work up an appetite. We’re happy to serve you at our Belize eco lodge, Jaguar Creek in the Cayo District. However, we also invite you to enjoy the local restaurants while you discover more of our area.
Wondering which are the best restaurants in Belize? Here are our top 5 restaurant recommendations for any appetite!
1. Cheers Restaurant & Cabañas
Cheers is a Central American restaurant that may not look like much from the outside. But once you walk in, it’s a hidden oasis full of charm. The fresh sourdough bread is something locals love and we think you will too. And yes, you’ll find plenty of the local Marie Sharp’s hot sauce to add to your menu selections!
2. Everest Nepalese and Indian Restaurant
If you’re feeling a bit more exotic, you will no doubt love the aromas and spice from Everest. Immerse yourself in another culture and be sure not to miss the coconut curry. It’s a family-owned place where the owner Raj and his wife will make you feel like you’re a part of their family. Himalayan food right here in Belize will hit the spot, plus there are many vegetarian options if you prefer a meatless experience.
3. Blue Moon
Blue Moon is a simple place, and while you won’t find much about it online, stop in for welcoming service and delicious homemade foods. It’s a casual spot with stunning views, perfect for families and anyone with a hearty appetite!
4. Cadmium Restaurant
Cadmium Restaurant is another little gem in Belmopan, one that offers fresh home-cooked foods in a delightful and inviting environment. You’ll find things like barbecued pork ribs or chicken, creamy chicken tequila pasta, rotisserie chicken with savory rice, and stewed oxtail with heaping sides of coconut rice and beans plus potato salad. It is a great way to experience Belmopan’s Belizean flavors.
5. Corkers Restaurant & Pub
And finally, if you’re craving a steak, you’ll want to head to Corkers Restaurant & Pub, run by Geoff and Sam, a husband and wife duo committed to providing excellent food. They have brought their years of restaurant industry experience from the UK to Belmopan, serving up British and international dishes much to your great delight. With numerous certificates of excellence from TripAdvisor, you can’t go wrong when you dine here! Corkers also has happy hour and daily specials, plus it’s ideal for a great celebration.
Don’t Forget to Dine at Jaguar Creek
At Jaguar Creek, our restaurant in the Main Lodge is another place that you shouldn’t miss for a grand dining experience. We’re open to serve you hearty home-cooked Belizean meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With locally sourced, fresh foods, we can’t wait to have you gather around our tables.
We pride ourselves on going local all the way to support the local community. Our sustainable practices ensure we take care of this slice of rainforest heaven in which our Belize eco resort resides. All the while, you can dine with us and enjoy the serene views of the rainforest at every turn.
We change our set menus daily to give you new experiences and flavors during your stay. If you have dietary restrictions or food sensitivities, we will happily accommodate you. Please let us know when you book your stay so that we can prepare the finest foods for you while adhering to your dietary needs.
Service is something we also put great emphasis on, both in our on-site restaurant and around our resort. Simply ask and it will be our pleasure to enhance your experience with us.
Before you head out on one of our Belizean adventure tours or peacefully luxuriate on our creek for tubing, you can enjoy a bountiful breakfast of delightful foods. Stop in for lunch to refuel after a half-day adventure tour, or get in some meditation while in our gardens and refresh with Belizean cuisine afterwards.
Don’t forget to join us for dinner during your stay too. Grab a cocktail at the bar first and enjoy yourself before making your way to your table. We can even set up a romantic dinner for two for an additional charge. Or if you’re here with your family, relax and know that we have plenty of kid-friendly foods that they are sure to eat.
Everything you need is at Jaguar Creek, the Belizean eco lodge that lets you relax, adventure, and reconnect with yourself and your loved ones in an effortless and unique way.
