Where to Eat in Corozal Town: The Best Restaurants and Bars

October 17, 2017 Weston Hennigan

Corozal Town is a town in Belize, capital of Corozal District. Corozal Town is located about 84 miles north of Belize City, and 9 miles from the border with Mexico. The population of Corozal Town, according to the main results of the 2010 census, is 9,871. Corozal was a private estate before becoming a town in the 1840s, mostly settled by Maya Mestizo refugees from the Caste War of Yucatán. Much of the town was built over an ancient Maya city, sometimes known as Santa Rita; this may have been the original Pre-Columbian town called Chetumal. Corozal Town was badly damaged by Hurricane Janet in 1955, and was substantially rebuilt afterwards.

Didn't have any diet soda or orange fanta tonight. Food was good except the salsa tasted bad. I had the fajitas definitely different from what you get in the states but tasted good. Missing shredded cheese and served with more of a pita style tortilla than one you can roll.

Patty's Bistro

We are a small family run restaurant in the small sleepy Central American Town of Corozal, Belize. We serve a selection of fresh "home-made" local food. All our food is prepared in our kitchen using only the freshest market finds. Patty's Bistro is the dream come true for owner/cook. Patty's Bistro is an extension of Patty's home's kitchen. Patty feeds her customers and family at the restaurant. She takes pride in her cooking and personally prepares every meal that leaves her kitchen. When in town stop by and say hi, we'll greet you with a smile and we'll make you feel at home!

I had shrimp carole for $15,00 that comes to like $7.50 USD. with white rice and a green salad.
they only take cash. go before you are too hurgury they make it after you order so it could take awhile.
it took as long for me to get the check as it did the food, it not a fast food restaurant lol
ad there is no AC only fans, which is enough. they sell drinks and beer , but I didn't have any, also reasonable like $6 $8 $10.

After arriving in Corozal we wanted somewhere close to eat and this was next door to where we were staying. You can sit out on the deck over the water and enjoy the ocean breeze while enjoying their great food. Between the 4 of us we had fish, chicken and pasta. All our meals were very good.

Corozo Blue's

Reviewed By pjkarp - Chevy Chase, Maryland

My wife and I ate at Corozo Blue's together with a Belizean friend and her 7-year old son. Dinner was on a Saturday night with the restaurant only about half full. We were greeted and seated immediately and our order was taken as soon as we were ready. From there service went downhill quickly. 45 minutes later when our food had not arrived I asked about the 6-year old's order (a hamburger). The server told me his food would come out when the rest of our orders were ready. Parentheses to say that nothing we ordered should have been complicated or taken extra time. A hamburger, two orders of Belizean stew chicken with rice and beans (a standard dish that any Belizean restaurant should have pre-prepared) and a steak.
Another 20 minutes passed and the food still had not arrived. I asked again and requested that they bring the boy's hamburger out first as he was getting quite hungry. 10 minutes later it finally was brought out. Then another 15 minutes before the rest of the orders were delivered.
To recap - an hour and fifteen minute wait for a hamburger and ninety minutes for the other orders. At not a single word of apology or any updates other than when I asked.
The food when it finally arrived was good. But hey, it is hard to ruin the items we ordered.
I travel frequently to Belize and elsewhere in the Caribbean so I understand what is to be expected by way of service standards. But I must say that what we experienced at Corozo Blue's was far short of what I would expect from a TripAdvisor Top rated restaurant

We stayed at the Almond Tree Resort for 3 days and from the first meal which was the lobster, we knew we didn't have to find anywhere else to eat. We just wanted to further explore the offerings at this restaurant and bar. Wilson is the charming owner/chef and his painstaking attention to detail is evident whether he is garnishing a drink or preparing your meal. The menu is quite large and varied for breakfast, lunch and dinner and prices (in Belizean dollars) are reasonable. We were in Corozal on personal business and hadn't planned on returning but now we hope we have another opportunity to both stay and eat at The Almond Tree. Thanks again!

Wood House Bistro

Reviewed By terrajunebug - Corozal, Belize

The food is very nice- made when ordered. Authentically tasting Chinese food. Nice setting off the water. Service is typical Belizean- you have to ask for a drink. the staff tends to spend more time behind the bar on their phones than checking on the patrons. However, the food is prepared quickly and delicious.
I like this place to have the wontons and the cashew chicken. Even the Orange Chicken isn't heavily fried with lots of batter and no chicken. The sauces are tasty and different from each other. The Egg Fu Young is delicious.
The prices are very good- you get alot of food for the price. I tend to take half home for dinner.

Only had drinks while waiting for our driver who was taking us to Playa Del Carmen. Very popular with the locals. Food that went past looked and smelled great. Nice that steps to access have been updated from the wonky wooden ones they used to have!

Right downtown in Corozol on the water, not enclosed so makes for a great view and breeze. Decent service and food selection at reasonable prices. Didnt appear that this was a local food place but more so for foreigners living in Belize. Good place to stop if you are thirsty.

Venke's Kabob Corner

Reviewed By Janet W - Brussels

I decided to go to this place on New Year's Eve, just to have some different food, as I was growing a bit tired do the local fare. I ordered Lamb Korma and it was absolutely delicious!! And such a big portion that I couldn't finish it all. It came with rice. I paid $16 BZ and thought it was really worth it. My friend ordered a spinach-cheese dish and also enjoyed it. They have purified water there for free, so it's not necessary to order a drink. I only saw one table in the place; I wonder what they do if they have more customers .... ?
The only negative point is that the restaurant looks pretty unkempt and even a bit dirty, both exterior and interior. It would be a good idea if they cleaned the floor once in awhile. It did take a long time before the food was served, but once I tasted it I understood why! A fresh coat of paint and a few Indian decorations on the walls would spruce up its appearance. But if you can overlook the aesthetic aspect, you can truly enjoy some fantastic freshly- cooked Indian food.

Burgers, sandwiches, appetizers, and specials. Beer, drinks, wine, sports TV, upper and lower levels, great view of the bay.

Although an older building, it's a popular hangout. Upstairs gives you the feeling of being in a giant treehouse. Overlooking the ocean, with a constant breeze. Great nachos! Fantastic bean dip! Fun karaoke! Very affordable!
