As a booming tourism destination, San Pedro Town boasts some of the most diverse restaurants in the country. From traditional local eateries featuring favorite Belizean cuisine to high-end establishments offering gourmet international dishes as diverse as authentic sushi to French gastronomy. Equally diverse is the ambiance that accentuates these venues, from quaint streetside delis to classy ambiance and trendy styles. New to the island, and indeed new to the vibe of island eateries, is ZZ’s Beach Club.

Centrally located at the landmark Spindrift Hotel, ZZ’s occupies the beachfront level of the building, where the iconic Pier Lounge and Caliente Restaurant once lived. Beautifully redecorated in white painted rustic siding with a subtle tropical flare, illuminated with hanging basket lights, saucy background music, and a second beachside bar, the open ambiance is sexy island chic.

The menu reflects their attention to detail and diversity, and the delicious and beautifully presented appetizers range from guacamole made fresh at your table to tasty tuna tartare, fried squid, and jerk wings, to name a few. Some of their unique cocktail options feature Aperol Fizz, Palamo’s, and Bailey’s Coldadas, along with your favorites and top-shelf spirits, all tasty and refreshing.

Dinner entrees are the coup de resistance, with choices that include a selection of sushi, catch of the day featuring lobster, snapper, shrimp, and crab claws to lamb, filet mignon with a variety of delectable sauces or Belize Brujo chicken. You can complement your main dish with a selection of sides ranging from roasted potatoes to sauteed veggies, curried couscous, and more.

Even if your tummy is full and happy after a fantastic meal, you must make room for dessert!

Ginger Crème Brûlée

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
