The Clarissa Falls Restaurant
Our restaurant is located under a large thatch roof on a Maya mound sitting beside the Mopan River (a great spot to do some bird-watching!). We invite you to come & try the simple & exotic Belizean gourmet meals in our restaurant, where food is made & served with love. A favourite among the locals, try our delicious variety of "Mestizo-style" dishes or select your own tasty combination.
The Clarissa Falls Restaurant is very popular with vegans & vegetarians and offers many delicious meat & dairy-free selections. If you have any special meal requirements while staying with Clarissa Falls, please let us know in advance. Chena is a natural healer and if you are not feeling your best, ask her about her special healing soups & hot teas.
Our restaurant is open daily from 7 AM to 7 PM. All prices are in American dollars.
Here's a tasty sample of what's available on our daily menus. We also have seasonal & special dishes available during the course of the year - we'll be happy to tell you all about it when you arrive.
