We had a very nice dinner here. The fried chicken was excellent as where the various papusas we ordered. Very friendly staff. Prices were very good. Great experience and a excellent opportunity to try local food outside the usual tourist eateries.

Loved their pancakes and for 2 breakfasts and 2 sodas for only 26 bzd... Pretty freaking sweet! Didn't have any awesome views of the ocean and was kinda off the beaten path, but worth the walk!

Recommended by a particularly friendly and helpful taxi driver we ate here and at the upmarket touristy place across the road from here. Both meals were delicious but one was five times the price of the other... At La Divina Providencia we had lunch of rice and beans with stewed chicken. Better than it sounds, the food was freshly prepared,... More

This restaurant seems primarily known to locals. We happened upon it by chance. Authentic Belizean breakfasts are available for very good prices. We enjoyed eggs, bacon, cheese wedge and Jack cakes, a local specialty.The fresh fruit smoothies were also delicious. All of the food was interesting and good, and the service was pleasant and friendly.On-site is a small grocery/variety store,... More

We came upon this place while we were exploring the island by foot. We were hungry and it was about to rain so we walked in. The place had outside seating and there really wasn't much to look at. Good vibe from the locals though. I noticed they had cow foot soup and decided it to give it a shot.... More

My husband and I visit LDP regularly for their excellent local menu items. Especially enjoy the daily lunch specials. Always happy when they offer Escabeche and Stewed Pig Tails. We live about a mile south, so a quick trip for us to get a great lunch. So many tourists ask us where they should go for real Belizian food. This... More

La Divina Providencia is a local favorite and located south of town across from Hidden Treasure. The papusas and the chicken flautas are so good and the staff were very friendly. We were frequent visitors to LDP during our time on the island and will definitely be back!

So we arrive at this eatery with a large shaded porch w fans, & beautiful residential view of the neighborhood. FOOD... More

La Divina Providencia is well worth the bumpy golf cart ride south -- authentic & cheap --an absolute DO NOT MISS in your Ambergris Caye itinerary!! They have many vegetarian options, and excellent fresh fish burritos. The tortillas are some of the best I've ever had! The watermelon juice is exquisite but beware that all good things take time-- everything... More
