GAÏA’S RESTAURANT FROM
ONSITE ORGANIC GARDEN
A Farm to Table Dining Experience
GAÏA Riverlodge’s open-air restaurant & cocktail lounge offers a wonderful opportunity to socially distance as you take in breathtaking scenic views of the Belizean rainforest.
From dawn to dusk, GAÏA Riverlodge’s full-service restaurant offers excellent Belizean and international cuisine reflecting the various influences in local tropical fruits, vegetables and spices, with a twist of fusion and international flavours. Fruits and vegetables picked daily are harvested on-site by Sam, our Mayan farmer who oversees GAÏA Riverlodge’s organic garden. The rest of our ingredients come from a network of local gardeners and farmers to ensure that we offer the best produce in the area while respecting our sustainability philosophy.
With spacious indoor and outdoor dining options, guests are invited to enjoy the intimacy and quiet of the rainforest with its unique sounds of birds, breeze, waterfalls and the magnificent sight of sunsets against the mountains and falls, transforming every meal into an unforgettable event.
