We were lucky to be renting a house right down the beach from this place, so we just kept going there! We liked it so much, we went three nights out of the seven we were in Placencia. We had most things on the menu,...More

This place is fantastic for lunch and dinner!! I ate at a couple other places and they were ok. I was never disappointed and cleaned my plate every time. The fish tacos were one of my favorites!!

Had several great meals here, easy walk from our hotel. the Caco Pork chops was so good we had to have it again before we left. Service and location is really nice with the beach view.

To me the best restaurant is the kind where you can relax, feel like you’ve been there many times before and have delicious food.. I felt all of those things! Lionfish tostones were terrific and the coconut seafood chowder was 🙌🏼

We're certainly far from perfect, but we do try our best to create a winning experience for every single customer, whether they are hotel guests, Belizean neighbors or travelers staying at other hotels. Try pairing small plates with wines, choose from our creative main courses, or just enjoy some comfort food for breakfast or lunch. It's fun for us to meet new people and, well, just make them happy! Our casual beach bistro focuses on unique sauces and contemporary, tropical-themed flavor combinations while maintaining comfortable portions. Lots of fish and seafood. Bar service includes a 130-bottle wine list, local beer, rum drinks, and house specials. The outdoor atmosphere is casual so you can be comfortable in flip flops. Belize's "Restaurant of the Year" award was presented twice to the Bistro in June 2011 and May 2013.
