Very popular place. Good atmosphere but sadly we were a bit disappointed. We ordered the grilled lobster which came with rice and vegetables. The prices were good and the serving of lobster was generous but it lacked flavour. No sauce, salt, pepper, seasoning etc. The...More

Stopped in at Wish Willy’s based on a recent recommendation from a diving buddy, and we were not disappointed. When we first showed up, it appeared they were closed as no one was there, but we were graciously met by Maurice, who was hospitable and...More

The blackened snapper and fish curry with fresh vegetables were fantastic. One of our favorite local spots for lunch! We brought our own local beer and Wish Willy had ice. Our food was ready in ten minutes.

I had heard some great things about this place and it did not disappoint! But it’s gotta be said, Wish Willy runs on island time. If you can’t embrace it and enjoy it, this isn’t the place for you. Such a relaxed vibe, super welcoming...More

This was hands down the best meal I’ve had on my Central American trip so far. Lobster, rice, and vegetables for 20 Belize dollars, an incredible deal and it tasted fantastic. Feels very authentically Belize. Don’t miss this place!
