When in Belize, make a stop or two at Asha's for lunch or dinner. You will never be disappointed when the main ingredient is LOVE.

Stumble upon this local water front restaurant just before there closing hours. With no hesitation they catered for 4 of us and provided a good size portion meal. Our waitress was a sweet heart, kudos to her high hospitality. Will defiantly go back :)

Asha's is a great place. Right at the seashore, away from the town buzz, smiley staff and lovely food. Go and have some lionfish with garlic there and don't forget Asha's Healthly Living Shot (it's very good for you ;-)). To get there just follow...More

Top quality seafood, vegetarian, and barbeque in Punta Gorda. Relax at the only restaurant and bar around that is completely over the sea. Fresh meals are cooked to order with sustainably caught seafood; fish are often caught by Asha (the owner/head chef) himself. Our kitchen serves hearty dishes prepared with healthy ingredients. Listen to various styles of live music – including Creole and Garifuna drumming, Mayan marimba, and international performances – all while enjoying the Caribbean sea breeze with a view of the Guatemala highlands from across the bay. Exceptional service and competitive prices. Business practices are very environmentally friendly. We cater to all needs; including large groups, food delivery, and a variety of events. Please call ahead for large groups, to-go orders, directions, or our music schedule. Marine tours, sustainable-fishing classes, sunset-booze cruises, and cooking lessons are available.
