Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been here two weeks and have eaten at several restaurants. Chef Kareem’s is the best food on the island. No better lobster. The jerk chicken is great. Highly recommend and you will not be disappointed. His lobster rice and beans and slaw are...great. The seasoning here is the best. Most places are relatively good on the grilled lobster but his flavor is the best. Thanks Kareem and PePe!More

This was a great, easy spot to grab lunch right off the side of the road. Kareem and his employee were grilling up fish and meat and had to go containers with sides (rice and black beans with Cole slaw) ready to go. We got...two garlic butter lobsters. Both were fresh and delicious, however the lobsters both were only about half full of fish. It was still great but at other places nearby we’ve gotten double the amount of fish so that was disappointing. Can’t complain much for $35 USD total for two lobsters! Would recommend for a quick and easy lunch!More

Great street-good type seafood BBQ. We ordered a grilled lobster and a snapper, so good! And it is very reasonably priced.

This is probably going to be one of the best grilled lobsters you will find in Belize. I’ve went to other places in San Pedro for lobster and they pale in comparison to the flavors this one has. The establishment isn’t high class but the...food is quality and will leave your tastebuds satisfied.More

The reviews are true. This is a must do street BBQ lunch. We had the Whole Lobster and Whole Snapper. Served with salad, rice and coleslaw. Great value for money. I would recommend the food here. All other dishes that we saw coming off the...grill went to very happy guests. Not a complaint in the crowd!More

Was just ok, the lobster was seasoned good but it was extremely small. The rice was dry and without flavor. My husband’s ordered the bbq chicken which he said was soggy and they also served a chicken neck as part of his portion. There was...a small area w a table to eat at but it was flies galore.More

If you go to Cay Caulker you have to stop and eat at Chef Kareem’s stand. There’s nothing else I can say about it. Spend much money other places or be happy with your purchase at Chef Kareem’s. While there speak with the Coconut man,...he is entertaining to say the least. You’ll walk away feeling the island vide. The coconut man may even sing his song for you. Oh trust and believe, fresh food brings flies, you won’t stop waving your hands.More

I received friendly service when I approached the BBQ. The cook tried to sell me the lobster but I wanted the Jerk Chicken. Another man asked me for 9USD when I received the chicken. I gave him 10USD and he walked away saying he had...no change! While waiting for my chicken anothet guy asked me if I wanted a rum and coconut drink for 5USD. The guy gave me a coconut and added the rum to the coconut milk to my taste. The jerk chicken had a great sauce but was overcooked and dry. I will not be returning. Perhaps the lobster is better here?More

I got shrimp kabobs and my husband ordered the jerk chicken. They said it would be 20 min so we took a little walk. We came back in twenty minutes then sat down at near by tables in the back. Another 15 min go by...and we go to check things out. They had given our order to someone else and in the end my husband didn't even get the right kind of chicken. The food we did get was tasty but I recommend hanging around. We would still recommend eating here verses the others that grill next to Kareem. His food is much betterMore

Seriously this is place is a must. It was so good we ate there twice in 3 days. My kids who don't like vegtables even ate those on the shrimp kabob. It was amazing.

We took a water taxi from San Pedro to Caye Caulker for the day to check out the island so stopped here for lunch because it smelled so good. It did not disappoint! Delicious and for the right price. There are adirondack chairs to kick...back on and sit oceanside to enjoy your meal. Can't get better than that!More

We were recommended Chef Kareem's grilled lobster by two of our guides in San Ignacio who frequent San Pedro/Caye Caulker, so we knew we had to try it when we were in Caye Caulker! We did not meet Kareem, but we did meet Pepe, who...was so friendly and nice. He took our orders and we sat in the adirondack chairs overlooking the water with our beers while he fulfilled our orders. We each ordered grilled lobster dinners and they were absolutely fabulous! Pepe delivered our food to us and we all savored every bit of that lobster. My only complaint is that we wanted more because it was so good! The garlic butter sauce they drizzle over it once it's cooked is beyond good. We knew how fresh it was, too, because we saw Kareem pull the fresh lobsters out and prepare them on the dock. If you are on Caye Caulker, you have to go here at least once. I still miss it!More

This place was awesome! SUPER busy when we arrived and ordered, so a bit chaotic, but worth it. The food was killer and eating BBQ on the beach is what it's all about. Jerk chicken and shrimp kabobs. Just do it.

Do not remember.... small operation; even if they do - always a chance that network is down or another obstacle can occur to process your card. Small pot of cash always helpful.
