Please take note that this is ERva's Restaurant, not Eva's!
Erva's claims to have the best pizza in Belize, and we believe them! A huge pie with lots of home-grown vegetable toppings is around $9 and will feed four if you get an appetizer.
The waiter will usually tell you what's fresh, but if he doesn't, ask him. They'll usually feature something they just got in, like conch fritters and conch chowder or fresh red snapper. If you are lucky enough to visit when they're serving conch fritters, you absolutely MUST order them. They're the best I've ever had, by FAR, and I'm a connoisseur!
Erva's has a stupendous breakfast, with the best fry jacks I had in Belize. Fry Jacks are little fried pillows of dough, like a Mexican sopaipilla. They usually eat them with the eggs and black beans that are served, but I normally ask for a little honey and my fry jacks last. I get funny looks, but BOY is it heavenly.
Breakfast costs around $3 and is served with fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, black beans, plantains, fresh squeezed juice, and real brewed coffee, something hard to find in San Ignacio!
I ate five meals in a row at Erva's once I finally discovered it and will quite likely eat there for every meal again when I get back to San Ignacio.

After a simple and cheap sandwich on the patio, I decided to use the internet. With time to spare after checking my email, I was curious what information was available on IgoUgo about San Ignacio. Bob appeared over my shoulder and smugly asked why I was using the Internet when he could answer all my questions. I told him about this site and proceeded to pull up the review of Eva's. He seemed unimpressed but curious that someone had written about his restaurant on the Internet. Once you get him comfortable and talking, you'll find him to be an informative and interesting character, so belly up to the bar with a local rum drink and decide the next day's adventure.

Nevertheless, should you choose to eat here, you can have burgers (around $3), pizza ($8), fresh fish ($6), Mexican ($4), and traditional Belizean chicken, black beans, and rice ($3).
Eva's is centrally located on the main drag in San Ignacio and is the headquarters for Pacz Tours, which we recommend over the giant Mayawalk Tours right across the street. Pacz is cheaper, the guides are better, and they've been doing it longer.
