    Great Cultural Experience and Friendly Staff
    We really enjoyed our food and our server was careful to explain the significance of the ultime and its unique cuisine. We enjoyed the food and tried lots of new flavors. The server even made sure we didn’t order bony fish for our 19 year old. The cassava bread was great.

    An incredible Cuisine and Cultural Experience
    This place is a real gem of San Pedro. Miss Julie show my wife and I how to prepare ceviche and a delicious Belizan boil meal. It was a complete experience from cutting the vegetables to adding the spices, cooking the dishes, all the way to serving our delicious meal. We even had food to take home! During the time we spent preparing our meal, Miss Julie shared with us lots of information about the Garifuna people and history of the great diverse populations of Belize. We invited Miss Julie, her husband, Frank, and their two kids, who all run the restaurant to join us in our delicious meal, and it turned out to be one of our best parts of our trip to Belize. Miss Julie even won the lobster fest award or best lobster preparation in 2022! She's an amazing chef and shared so much with us. Thank you black and white restaurant Miss Julie and Frank.

    Delicious food and great cultural experience
    Great ambiance, visual representations of Garifuna culture at this quaint restaurant. This is the real deal, the food is delicious and the service was great. We enjoyed the Garifuna drumming , returned later that week with friends. Support a Belizean owned restaurant and enjoy a yummy meal at Black and White.

Place came highly recommended by a local shop owner and by many travel influencers. We enjoyed our jerk oxtails and traditional Hubut. Saw many things on the menu that reminded me of home.

We stumbled across this randomly and booked cooking classes, which was the highlight of the trip worth every second of the time and such an amazing experience

Great food and great owners! It may be off the beaten path, but it's worth a visit. Was happy to support the Garifuna Belizeans in San Pedro.

Great food here! The combo hudut is delicious, highly recommend it. We didn’t see much of the cultural entertainment side, but the food alone is worth the visit by itself.
