Ambergris Caye has the biggest selection of restaurants of any destination in Belize, and among them are some of the country's best. They range from simple beach barbecue joints to upscale, sophisticated eateries, where, especially if you eat lobster, you can spend BZ$100 a person or more, including a drink or two or wine. You have a wide choice of kinds of food on Ambergris: seafood, of course,
but also steak, pizza, sushi, tapas, Chinese, Italian, Thai, Mexican, and French.
Caye Caulker has a number of small bistros where fish arrives at your table fresh from the ocean, and sometimes you find yourself eating with your feet in the sand. On other islands you're usually limited to eating at your dive lodge or resort.
On both Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye street vendors set up barbecue grills along Front Street and on the beachfront and cook chicken, fish, shrimp, and lobster. Use your own judgment, but we’ve found in almost all cases the food from these vendors is safe, tasty, and inexpensive.
