Lobsterfest At Portofino Beach Resort in Belize!
For the second year San Pedro’s Lobsterfest was held on Barrier Reef Drive in the heart of San Pedro town, Ambergris Caye. Our very unique Lobsterfest was listed by Frommer’s Whats on When, as one of the 300 greatest events in the world.
Crowds gathered to enjoy all the great things that a Lobsterfest is known for – the extensive selection of delectable lobster cuisine, the display of unique creations by local artisans, great musical entertainment, games, activities, and of course the added attraction of a refreshing dip along San Pedro’s sandy beaches.
The Lobsterfest festivities where organized by several hotels and restaurants on the Island including us, Portofino Beach Resort and Restaurant located north of San Pedro Town.
On Monday June 15th 2009, we had our Lobster Beach BBQ, accompanied with great live music from San Pedro’s icons, Wil and Dale. That day many guests came over to enjoy a day of fun in the sun, our refreshing designer pool, cold drinks and succulent lobster specials. Complimentary round trip boat transfers where also included for our outside visitors.
The menu included homemade Lobster Ceviche served with crispy corn chips to start with.
And as an Entrée we gave our guests the choice between Grilled Lobster Tail or Lobster Kebab. These succulent dishes where served with Coconut Rice & Coleslaw, Tropical Fruit Punch made by our best bartenders Orville and Raphael and lets not forget, lots and lots of fun!
To make the Lobsterfest complete, our guests could come on Tuesday, June 16th to enjoy our romantic lobster candlelit dinner. It was a delightful evening of music and dancing and our guests enjoyed our delicious Lobster Bisque, Lobster a la Ritz served over a bed of linguine and for our culinary finale, our famous Café au Laite.
The lobster frenzy lasted for eight days in which people devoured succulent Caribbean Spiny Lobster to their hearts’ content. Overall San Pedro’s second annual Lobster fest was successful again!
