Bernie and the Coconut Mossiah

One of Las Terrazas Resort's many amenities is the renowned O Restaurant and Rooftop Sky Lounge, located right on the resort's premises. Both locals and guests to the island crave O Restaurant's fresh and flavorful fusion of Caribbean and Central American cuisine with a Belizean flair, but it's the staff who truly satisfy and leave guests coming back for more. If you have not yet had the pleasure of dining at O Restaurant, it is a joy to introduce you to Bernie, one of the O Restaurant's fabulous bartenders!

Born in North Belize with grandparents from the Yucatan and Honduras and parents with Nicaraguan roots, Bernie does more than just mix drinks… she is a fabulous cocktail herself! As a young woman with a sense of adventure, she came to Ambergris Caye in search of something more. To make ends meet, she took a position as a cocktail waitress and quickly fell in love with and developed a passion for mixology. Bartending is so much more than just serving a drink; the colors, flavors, and skill that are needed to blend the perfect cocktail is truly a work of art and requires a level of expertise that often goes unnoticed. Armed with this passion and knowledge, Bernie started working at Las Terrazas Resort's O Restaurant a little more than five years ago with a desire to continue her progress and demonstrate her knowledge to a more discerning clientele.

When asked about what she loves about working for O Restaurant, Bernie is quick to say that bartending is so much more than just a job — it is her passion and her way of life! She enjoys meeting the constantly revolving clientele, especially those who challenge her to create drinks that are both specific and special to them and their time in Belize. And, the feeling is mutual. Guests appreciate Bernie because she is both fun and professional— she knows how to interact and engage with patrons while staying within the bounds of a professional bartender. In fact, just a quick TripAdvisor search of Las Terrazas Resort coupled with Bernie's name will prove that she is known for her extra special attention and service. Frequently described by reviewers as "awesome", "the best", and "attentive", Bernie is known for finding that perfect balance of accommodating guest needs and engaging them with warmth and humor, all without being a bother. Above all, she loves her customers and learns how to read them, ensuring that their needs are met and their time at O Restaurant and Las Terrazas Resort is a fantastic one.

As if this isn't convincing enough, Bernie has shared one her special creations for you to make on your own. Her recipe is tried and true; she tastes all of her cocktails and creations and would never serve something that she wouldn't drink herself. Below is her famous Coconut Mossiah but be warned: one taste of her fabulous creation will have you begging for more. Go make yourself a drink and then promptly schedule your next vacation to our all-inclusive resort in Belize where you can meet Bernie and the rest of the fabulous O Team yourself!
