Top 10 restaurants in Dangriga, Belize

January 3, 2018 Natalie Tallman

Love culture, not crowds? Leave the bustle of Belize City for quieter Dangriga, at the end of the Hummingbird Highway. The town is a suitable base for exploring the Stann Creek district: visit the Maya Center and the world's first jaguar preserve, explore the beach and try snorkeling at the reef a few miles out.

Barracuda Bar and Grill at Beaches and Dreams

The Barracuda brings together fine dining with a casual, seafront atmosphere. We have the most extensive brunch menu in Belize, including a daily breakfast buffet. In the evening, choose from our selections of fine seafood, steaks, and pasta. We also have an extensive drink menu available for both meals.

We ate many meals, lunch and dinner, at Barracuda during our week in Hopkins. The beach setting and the great food and drink was a blissful combination. Our favorites included Daiquiris that invoked visions of Hemingway, coconut encrusted snapper that was grilled to perfection, and a coconut flan that won the debate when we considered which of our favorite places to visit for our final night's dinner. The service was the best we experienced during our stay. We agreed that the restaurant was our favorite among a great lineup of choices.

The waitress never took the time to explain what we were ordering or how to eat it! After struggling through the meal we watched a local customer order the same selection and properly mix the various items together. If they would have taken a few minutes to explain the cuisine and how the local people eat it I would have enjoyed it. By then it was too late to enjoy it.

Chef Rob's Gourmet Cafe

Chef Rob changes his menu on a daily base inspired by the freshest products delivered to us by the ocean and the land. You can have your meals prepared in the kitchen, or cooked directly at your table on a 700F hot Rock, the 'Love on the Rocks' concept. Enjoy a 4 course gourmet menu or 'a la Carte' options while zipping a tantalizing cocktail overlooking the Caribbean sea. We do welcome vegetarians and will cater to any menu restriction, within reason.

Chef Rob's was right next door to our villa and we ate here twice. Both meals were excellent and well prepared. Nice friendly staff and excellent food. His salads and vegetable plates are unique. He goes out of his way to find vegetables that the other resorts don't offer and they are very well prepared.
I had shrimp both times but prepared differently. I enjoyed them both. If you go to Hopkins don't miss Chef Rob's.

Prior reviews hit it right on the mark.
This is a local establishment. Just a few tables, no air conditioning. Menu not aimed at the package tour set. It's right by the water where the small fishing boats tie up in the center of town. Stand on the pedestrian walkway on the high bridge carrying Main Street over Stann Creek. It's the pink building with the name beneath the Belikin Beer sign in letters too small to read.
We had the fried whole snapper. Small-ish, but as delicious as can be. Usual Belizean sides with it. Beer cold. Price most reasonable. All in all, quite satisfactory.

driftwood beach bar & pizza shack

Just opened about 6 months ago - serves pizza and pasta, has a bar, sits on the beach with some volleyball and games at times, cute decor and great owners - expats from Canada. Really good pizza, nice break from the local food if you need it.

Reviewed By Crystal L - Sylvan Lake, Canada

Nice little restaurant on the beach. Service was okay. Pizza was very good but expensive for just one large pizza. Washrooms were clean.

Tina's Kitchen

Tina's Kitchen has been opened since 2011 and is currently at it's third location since business started due to the demand for more and more Seating . The Owner Ms. Tina as she is known decided to start her own small business after working at various resorts where she mastered her cooking craft in Belizean Cuisine and the traditional Garifuna dishes which is a part of her rich culture. At Tina's you won't see fancy dining sets and so fort but the meals that are basically home cook and made to order is what keeps quest coming back. We have a very small staff of hard working Belizeans that are ready to cater to your needs and they always try their best to insure the Customers leave happy. So the next time you are in Hopkins Village, Belize or planning a vacation to Belize then you would want to put Tina's on your list of places to dine. I can assure you the experiences will be worth it.

Reviewed By jlodes1159 - Benque Viejo del Carmen, Belize

The only reason we even went to Tina’s Kitchen is that there were supposed to be drummers on a particular Friday evening. I would definitely ask them whether the drummers will be there. It’s a really cool experience. Otherwise I’d stay clear of the place. It took us 20 minutes to get a beer and a margarita. The service is terrible. The nachos we ordered later were surprisingly good though. It rained on us through the tarp they use for a roof.

The indoor dining room has a wonderful warm ambiance and the outdoor patio portion affords you an ocean view complete with the lovely ocean breeze. The menu and staff are amazing and personally great you each meal. Some of the menu items change daily.
