Belizean Food at El Fogon Restaurant

About Us

El Fogon Restaurant is a local family restaurant offering traditional Belizean Food, the best in Belize Cuisine, cooked by fire hearth with decades of experience!

The restaurant was founded by the Arceo-Eiley family in the early 2000’s. Growing up in a beautiful island of Ambergris Caye, “La Isla Bonita”, witnessing all the developing changes, the Arceo-Eiley family wanted to maintain and preserve the authenticity of their childhood upbringing. One of Belize’s household necessities was and for some still is “El Fogon Restaurant”. Before, “El Fogon” meant the only form of energy in a household; from lighting at night, to warm water for cooking, bathing and was also a form of heating and comfort on a stormy season.

“El Fogon” today is a fire pit/firewood stove used for cooking everything from Stews, Soups and lots of popular game meats. El Fogon Restaurant offers lots of traditional Belizean dishes that has been in local Belizean’s diet for decades. Up to today, more than half of Belize’s population owns, uses and enjoy cooking, stewing and grilling on a “Fogon”.

El Fogon Restaurant was built to resemble an old fashioned kitchen that the islanders and Belizeans in general grew up with.

We welcome you to be part of a Belizean experience that celebrates tradition and culture of a never ending melting pot.
