Mas Ceviche Por Favor! Oct 25, 2008
Every year when I come back to Ambergris Caye, a must stop is the El Divino restaurant at the Banana Beach Hotel south of the main town of San Pedro. I always stay next door at Mata Rocks and always grab lunch one or two days since it's super close and convenient.

Pretty much what I go for is the ceviche. You will not find better ceviche on the island (I've tried quite a number of them and this is by far, the best!). They offer three sizes and the large is HUGE. They have shrimp, conch, and then mixed - octopus, shrimp, and conch. It is so fresh and I usually get the grande mixed ($25 US) and bring some back to the room for snacking later. The grande platter is so large it can feed more than two people as a meal!

I have not tried their large hamburgers but have seen my friends' order them over the past couple years and they are enormous as well!

This year, I tried breakfast in there for the first time two days because Silvina and I had got up too late for breakfast at our own hotel! LOL. We kept hearing about something called "Fry Jacks" which is a Belizean staple. We learned that they are basically simple golden brown fried dough that is eaten at breakfast time, often with jam or honey on top. We fell in love with them - so simple but so satisfying! An order of three as a side is $3.95 US I believe. I also tried their Apple Cinammon French Toast which was excellent.

I've never eaten there for dinner (other than for ceviche) but they are listed as a steakhouse and martini bar. Their bar area is very small but they tend to do quite a business certain nights of the week.

Overall, I would recommend this restaurant for lunch, especially if you like ceviche. Everyone I know who has tried it has raved that it's the best ceviche they've ever eaten! I ate it 4 times this trip and already can't wait to go back next year! LOL

I ate dinner here twice on a recent trip. The first night four of us ordered the large mixed ceviche plus an entree each, and that was way too much food. The ceviche was fabulous, and I had to leave half my salad.

Another night three of us split the medium mixed ceviche with nothing else, and we left satisfied.

This place is the house restaurant for Banana Beach. If you're staying at Banana Beach, you already go here because breakfast is included. They advertise it as a steak house at night but I don't think i'd bother checking it out. The food at brekkie is mediocre at best; by day 3 we were ordering cold cereal and milk. And guess what that would cost if you weren't staying at the hotel? 6 BUCKS! I'll let you guess how the pricing for the steak goes.

The martini bar that they advertise reminds me of a set for a Dave Chapelle Show skit involving Rick James. Yeah....
