Gorgeous Dinner and Sunset at Purple Pelican Restaurant

I wrote a few months ago about how the Purple Pelican Restaurant was about to open and…WOW.  The huge gorgeous palapa-ed spot tucked in what seems like a secret lagoon but…right in the middle of town.

I then stopped into the very well-attended Grand Opening in mid-November.  I was there just in time for the ribbon cutting.

But wanted to head back for a sunset…because this is one of the best locations on the island to view it.  Plus, Jeff worked with Chef Marvin – who runs the kitchen at Purple Pelican for lots of years.

We were not disappointed.  The food was great and the sunset…all the purples and oranges featured in their logo were on display.

Sunset is early this time of year…around 5:30pm.

Very cool watching the local traffic too…

I think I took a few too many pictures but it is THAT stunning!

I highly recommend the jerk pork chop – super thick and really good.  Pork in Belize is absolutely delicious.

And dense delicious carrot cake.

I was too focused on the beautiful scenery!  I’ll be back for more pictures soon.  What a lovely spot.

And…I just saw there menu for New Year’s Eve…in case you are interested.
