On the banks of the New River in Orange Walk Town lies Maracas Bar and Grill – a restaurant that has everybody buzzing about their delicious Belizean and Mestizo cuisine. Located just a few minutes from town in a naturally styled outdoor venue, Maracas Bar and Grill is an ideal place to taste the richness of the Maya-Mestizo heritage and international cuisine while overlooking the picturesque river.
It doesn’t get any better than this – Dine under a thatched roof while enjoying the cool and gentle breezes that roll off the river. Cooling off is made easy with cold drinks by the riverside after a day of exploring and shopping in Orange Walk. Maracas Bar and Grill has a wide selection of great dishes and drinks on their menu. Here are some of the dishes we sampled including Surf and Turk, Pork Pibil Tacos and Empanadas de Chaya which we highly recommend.
If you are feeling more adventurous ask about the river tour that leaves from the restaurant and embrace the natural surroundings along with your loved ones. Maracas Bar and Grill is open for lunch and dinner, but you can also enjoy a cold beer or cocktail by the river.
