Ambergris Caye finally has its first real sushi bar and Japanese restaurant, complete with a talented and well-traveled Japanese chef. The menu items are more traditional and simple offerings, but absolutely delicious. Chef Toshiya showcases a variety of local seafood as well as some imported specialties. Look for a nice selection of sake, and don't skip dessert. This is the place you want to try for authentic Japanese cuisine while visiting the island.
JYOTO recently opened at Mahogany Bay Village, which is a resort and residential community scheduled to fully open its doors as a Hilton Curio branded property in Winter 2017.
