Ambergris Caye has the biggest selection of restaurants in Belize. Restaurants range from barbecue and picnic tables to white linen and candlelight. At the latter type, you can spend BZ$100 a person or more, including a cocktail 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, and Mexican.

Caye Caulker has a number of small bistros where fish arrives at your table fresh from the ocean, and often you find yourself eating with your feet in the sand. On other islands you're 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.
