The Cotton Tree Lodge restaurant is located in the Main Lodge and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Guests usually sit family style at meals, encouraging a sense of community. Service is always friendly and attentive, and food carefully presented. Menus are influenced by a blend of Belizean, American, and European cuisine, utilizing fresh local ingredients and seasonings, with much of our produce coming from our on-site organic garden. We offer set menus that change daily. We gladly do our best to accommodate special dietary requests.
Breakfast is a hot and hearty buffet including fresh tropical fruit, eggs, and homemade breads. Lunches are light and nutritious, featuring items like burritos, stewed chicken, rice and beans, and salads. Lunches may be eaten in the restaurant or as a picnic on tour. Dinners begin with appetizers at the bar followed by a four course seated meal of soup, salad, entrée, and dessert. A typical dinner menu might include gazpacho, tomato herb salad, garlic sautéed shrimp, and orange cake.

The Cotton Tree Lodge bar in the Main Lodge serves Belikin beer products, a modest range of wines, and a full menu of cocktails prepared with fresh fruit juices. Nightly drink specials and appetizers make the bar a popular gathering spot before dinner. On clear nights we also serve drinks down at our riverside bar, allowing guests to enjoy their drinks and good company under the spectacular stars. The bar is open from 11am until close, and a snack menu is available for guests and walk-ins between meals times.
