The Clubhouse Restaurant
Gaze over the lagoon to the distant Maya mountains and prepare yourself for one of the most unique, relaxing and savory dining experiences in Belize. Our farm-to-table cuisine takes traditional dishes and blends them with a unique Belizean touch. This fusion of style and taste is most evident in our tapas, such as the pupusas with fillings that change daily. Whether you are starting your morning with an inspiring view or catching a sunset after a day of adventure, you’ll find everything you desire at the Clubhouse.
Fyah Beach Restaurant
Fyah is the local dialect for fire with a cuisine rooted in Belizean traditions that is cooked over an open flame grill in front of you. Here you will lounge under the Palapa in a chic, Caribbean beach shack bohemian setting.
Private dinner arrangements are available upon request in our Sunset or Beach Side Docks, perfect for special occasions ranging from romantic candlelit dinners to birthday celebrations.
