Guava Limb Café: Belize’s “2015 Restaurant of the Year”

BTB awards Guava Limb with “2015 Restaurant of the Year”!


Official recognition and lovely words from our friends and customers – what could be better?

It’s wonderful to win an accolade such as the Belize Tourism Board’s 2015 Restaurant of the Year at the Annual National Tourism Awards, but we must say that unsolicited emails from private individuals like the one below really make our day. This kind of feedback is one of the best things about our relationship with our Guava Limb and Chaa Creek customers.


Which is not to say that we aren’t hugely grateful and appreciative to have the Belize Tourism Board honour us as the 2015 Restaurant of the Year. Being such a small, intimate place tucked away on the banks of the Macal River in San Ignacio, it really means a lot to us to not only be noticed, but to win such a prestigious award.

It also speaks volumes about our friendly, hard working and creative staff who, from those tending the Maya organic farm to the chefs and people bringing personality and excellent service to the Guava Limb tables, have all worked together to create something special indeed. We couldn’t be prouder.

So many thanks to our friends and patrons like James Janmohamed, who kindly wrote:

It is with no surprise that I read the news confirming “Guava Limb” receives the Restaurant of the Year award at the Belize Tourist Board Awards Ceremony held here in San Pedro, I have known the Fleming’s since I was a young soldier stationed in Cayo and have always admired their panache and hard work in creating the wonderful resort of Chaa Creek, so when I heard from Mick that he was going to open a restaurant in the heart of San Ignacio, I was sure it would be special…

“ My hats off to you Mr. Mick and the Fleming family and not the least the wonderful staff.”

Thanks, Jim.


And many thanks to all our other supporters and our Belize hospitality industry colleagues who, by setting impeccable standards and keeping the bar high, foster an atmosphere in which all of us can flourish. And of course, many thanks to the BTB, who have been invaluable partners with all of us in the tourism industry as we continue to work together towards continually improving a uniquely home-grown Belizean industry that, to many of us, is much more than just a way to make a living.

Most of all we want to thank our staff. This award would not be possible without you.

And please be assured that we won’t be resting on our laurels – our creative chefs are always looking for new ways to use Belize’s bounty of seafood, livestock from lush pastures and the fresh produce coming out of our Maya organic farm. While we have lots of tradition, there always seems to be something new happening at the Guava Limb – just Like Belize itself.

We hope to see you there!

The Fleming Family and staff of the Guava Limb Café
