Wild Mango's Review

Noted local chef Amy Knox made Wild Mango's one of the most interesting dining choices on the island. Many of the dishes have a Mexican base but with Knox's sophisticated twist. She calls her cooking "New Wave Latin"—Caribbean food infused with spicy Latin flavors from Cuba, Argentina, and Mexico. It's good enough to have earned her Belize Chef of the Year honors twice in the past. Start with the Tres Amigos, three kinds of ceviche with shrimp and fish (Knox does not use conch or lobster, because she believes it is not sustainable.) Try the Budin Azteca, a Mexican version of lasagna, or the huge fish burritos (enough for two). Seating is beach casual, with stools at tables on a covered, open-air veranda. We especially like Wild Mango's for a casual lunch.

    Wild Mango's Review

    Best in San pedro? We think so. Wild Mango comes very highly recommended by us, as well as many locals. We sat at the bar with Norvel who's service was great. We started with some southwestern style chicken egg rolls that were so yummy. I had the pasta with alfredo which definitely compares to my favorite italian restaurant back home, it was a little sweet and the garlic was perfect. Our other meal (I couldn't stop eating my boyfriends dinner) was perfectly marinated steak strips with delicious baked beans and possibly the best cornbread I have ever had. We wished we had room for dessert. If only she'd open a place in Lake Tahoe.

    Wild about Wild Mangos!

    We loved Wild Mangos so much we dined there at least 3 times within the 7 days we were on the island. They made great sandwiches with the snappers we caught earlier in the day. Dinner was amazing.
