Belmopan - Post Report Question and Answers

What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

Good Restaurants in Belmopan are limited and most deliver. Drive 20 minutes to resorts to Treys Barn & Grill and the food is very very good. Drive 40 minutes to San Ignacio and there is more to choose from. Driving out of town at night is not considered safe so a lot of entertaining is done at home. - Feb 2019

No restaurants are fast - call ahead to order or order and then go do an errand if you want to be efficient. The food in Belmopan is not great but there are decent tacos, wings, pizza, hummus, and Belizean barbecue. For great food you need to go to Placencia or another tourist spot. - Jun 2015

No fast food...but a couple pizza places and a Chinese restaurant deliver. There are a few decent restaurants, some local and some run by expats. - Jun 2015

There is good pizza (a few outlets deliver), and a few modest restaurants in Belmopan that are OK, but that's about it. There are no world-brand (McDonald's, Burger King, etc.) fast-food establishments in Belize. Some of the jungle resorts provide a weekend getaway and fine-dining option, but they are hours away over bad roads. Coppola Enterprises has two excellent resorts with world-class cuisine, and there are a few others as well. We enjoyed some of the local restaurants for what they are. - Jan 2011
