Erva's gets my vote for the best restaurant in San Ignacio, though most people seem stuck on Hannah's. Erva's gets less attention because it's 2.5 blocks from the center of town, as opposed to right in the center.
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.
