We stayed at the hotel here so eating was convenient. The restaurant is right on the sand and water. It is very close to the piers and daytime activities like snorkelling and diving. The wait staff was helpful and charming. The menu is simple with...More

We stopped here for dinner, and if everyone else on the island had been hiding the really spicy jerk chicken, we found it here. This was very Jamaican, which made me wonder if the Belizean Jamaican food we'd had elsewhere was deliberately less spicy, like...More

A brilliant mix of Belizean and Jamaican food options. Family dinners and lunches while on vacation we're an absolute pleasure at Jambel's. The staff were a pleasure and the menu is varied enough that there is something for everyone to order and enjoy!

If you look at the menu, the prices for an individual dish are around the price of the buffet (which operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays), so that would be your best option. The food is good, however not completely worth the price in the case...More

I was with a tour group of 18, and we ate at Jambels 3 times ( 1 lunch, 2 dinners). The food was excellent each time. We didn't really get to choose from the menu, as our meals were pre-set, so I would love to...More

Hello Jambell Staff, I really enjoyed the wonderful food at Jambell's while visiting last week. I had the lobster served jerk style and have been thinking about it ever since. I wish to get the recipe so that I can share it with my family in California. Any chance of you sharing it? Warmest Wishes, Beverly
