Unsurpassed Cuisine

One of the few restaurants in the country with chefs trained by the Culinary Institute of America, The Cooling Rack serves inventive fare that’s a cut above the rest. Cooling Rack’s kitchen staff use an ever-changing mix of the freshest local ingredients to produce offbeat Belizean and classic international dishes. From rib eye steaks to plantain-crusted fish, the menu at The Cooling Rack is constantly improving and evolving.

Upscale Libations

The Cooling Rack isn’t just a great place to take in the finest food in town. We also boast the perfect bar experience for young and old alike. Our friendly crew of knowledgeable bartenders dishes out a variety of native Belizean drinks in style. Classic cocktails like Planter’s Punch and the Bahama Mama really sparkle when you make them with freshly squeezed local fruit juice.

Unforgettable Ambiance

While an important part of the equation, food and drink are just a fraction of the Cooling Rack experience. The views looking out over the Belize River Valley make for truly memorable meals at the Cooling Rack. Relaxing in one of Cahal Pech Village Resort’s three pools is always a great way to cap off dinner. You won’t find man-made waterfalls and a spa at any other high-end restaurant in town.

Unparalleled Value

It’s not often that the best joint in town also offers the most bang for your buck. The Cooling Rack breaks with tradition on that front by delivering amazing meals day in and day out that are affordably priced. Families in particular flock to The Cooling Rack for breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals. The fact that Cahal Pech’s in-house restaurant draws lodgers from other hotels speaks volumes.

The Total Package

An outstanding dining experience is never the result of a single factor. Great establishments that stand the test of time excel in every category of customer satisfaction. The Cooling Rack manages to outclass every other restaurant in San Ignacio by matching first-rate food and drinks with a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. For a champagne experience at beer prices, the obvious choice is The Cooling Rack.
