The restaurant is located in the main lodge under the giant palapa roof, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Guests usually sit family style at meals, encouraging a sense of community. The set daily menus are influenced by a blend of Belizean, American, and European cuisine, utilizing fresh local ingredients and seasonings, with much of the produce coming from the resort’s organic garden and the local Mayan farming villages. Should any guest venture out onto the waters on a fishing trip, the kitchen will happily cook the catch for everyone to enjoy.

Breakfast is a hearty hot and cold buffet including fresh tropical fruit, eggs, and homemade breads. Lunches are light and nutritious, featuring items such as burritos, stewed chicken, rice and beans, and salads. Lunches may be eaten in the restaurant or taken as a picnic on tours. Dinners begin with appetizers at the bar followed by a four course seated meal of soup, salad, entrée, and dessert. A typical dinner menu might include gazpacho, tomato herb salad, garlic sautéed shrimp, and orange cake.

The Cotton Tree Lodge bar in the Main Lodge serves Belikin beer products, a modest range of wines, and a full menu of cocktails prepared with fresh fruit juices. Nightly happy hours and appetizers make the bar a popular gathering spot before dinner. On clear nights a campfire is set up by the gazebo, allowing guests to enjoy their drinks under the stars.
