I thought this would be too touristy since it's right on the main strip on the water, but the food was actually pretty good and the service was good as well. Would recommend for a nice night or afternoon on the water!

For our last night on the island we decided to try a new spot with a view and came to Rainbow. The view is beautiful, and it was a great spot to watch the sunset. The prices are a little high compared to many other places, but it was worth it for the view alone. We had the grilled red... More

Ate at this restaurant twice and had fantastic meals. Both times I opted for the fish fillet which I had blackened with coconut rice. The fish was to die for and I loved the tasty coconut rice. The location and view is wonderful. Highly recommended

Great service. We were lucky enough to be in Caye Caulker after they reopened after the Hurricane Earl damage they suffered. Lobster ceviche, coconut shrimp, lime margaritas and mojitos are fabulous.

Just finished redoing the place....We had a wonderful dinner where i hit the jackpot with a lobster which was succulent and super tasty. The mojito was well made, not too sweet. The atmosphere was a little overlit but service was excellent! Prices are fair and it is certainly an option for anybody loving proper seafood......

Built out over the water it was a really nice place to eat once the sun started going down. Drinks were good and the food was very good, grilled snapper in wine and mushroom sauce for this night. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was good and the meal was very reasonable.

Great atmosphere, great seafood, a little slow when it comes to service, but this is the laid back sister to Ambergris Caye, which is known locally as "a drinking island with a fishing problem"!

For us this was a 5-button place. Service was very slow as other reviewers have mentioned, but we weren't in any hurry. What's the rush on Caye Caulker? What schedule do you have to meet? The only one I could think of would be a tour or because you're leaving, but my sense is that if you'd tell them your... More

Great views and wonderful food. Good vegetarian selections. So sad to see it after the hurricane though! I hope they are able to rebuild! Being right on the water, makes for great views but a dangerous place during a storm! Be strong! We'll be back!

Not outstanding but adequate. The food was good, prices on par with other like restaurants. Somehow ambiance is lacking even though it is right on the ocean. Maybe the lighting? The staff there also Were proficient but it didn't match the warmth and personality that I'm used to experiencing on the Caye. Overall, it was ok.
