The Paddle House
At the core of The Lodge at Jaguar Reef lies a striking lobby that offers expansive views of the Caribbean Sea and our renowned restaurant, The Paddle House. With glass-door walls that open up, the lobby sets the stage for an array of cocktails, authentic Belizean breakfast, and a daily changing lunch and dinner special that reflects the season.
Wicker lanterns gently sway in the coastal breeze, adding a touch of charm to the dining experience that centers around seafood. The menu highlights diverse flavors, including coconut husk-smoked pork belly paired with ground provisions as a nod to the local Garifuna culture. Additionally, you’ll find favorites like Yucatán-style pork Pibil and freshly made corn tortillas.
The Lodge at Jaguar Reef’s lobby and restaurant offer a seamless blend of breathtaking views and satisfying cuisine, making for an inviting and enjoyable experience.
The Paddle House is directly influenced by the surrounding Garifuna community, an indigenous people whose staple meals rely on fish, plantain, and root vegetables. In Belize, homage is paid to culture through food. Freshly caught snapper is paired with creamy coconut rice as flavors of the south inspire soulful decadence. Even with the sea calling, you’ll find inland classics and northern flavors to complete the menu.
