Opened in late 2012, Black Orchid (unrelated to the similarly named resort near Belize City) is a new option in upscale dining on the island. In a raised house beside the sandy road about 2.5 miles (4 km) south of town, the atmosphere is island-flavored, with a thatch booth inside for the greeters and some Mayan-themed decor. The luncheon choices range from beer-battered fried fish to sweet-and-sour pork. The dinner menu includes grilled lobster (in season), pork, and
a boneless rib eye charbroiled on lava rocks and served with mashed potatoes. For Sunday brunch try the eggs Benedict accompanied by freshly made sangria.
