Now under a new name. Pastorina's is great. The food was delicious, staff were lovely, and they have a secret garden out the back. Highly recommend Pastorina's.

Not the best fried chicken I've ever had, but crispy, not overly dried out, flavorful and worth the calories.

We were in Belize for 10 days and I ate here 3 times because their fried chicken is just that good, plus it's super inexpensive. Definitely go here at least once!
