We were talking about Dawn's on flight down. If you don't get there when she opens, you will wait a while. It was lobster time and we jumped right in. Such nice people and it is an real treat when Mom comes out to check on your meal. Even lunch is an occasion at Dawn's!!!

Dawn's is a hidden gem! Situated right next to the main street in Placencia Village, it is small and unassuming, with only about 6 tables. But, Oh, the food! We first dined there on Valentine's Day evening, the last night of lobster in the region before it was out of season. Unlike most lobster I'd had (steamed and served with... More

We really need to get back to Dawn's. Had a wonderfully tasty meal. They offer their seafood cooked several different ways. My husband got his grilled and I got mine curried and they were both delicious. Super friendly and attentive staff in a very quaint environment. Good prices for quality of the food.

Dawn's is one of my go-to places when I am in Placencia on business. The food is always well prepared. Flavors are there. Dawn's passion for her cooking is evident. If you are thinking table cloths and candle light, forget it. Come to Dawn's comfortable and be prepared to leave happy and full.

I'm disappointed it took me three years to try this spot. I've never been treated so kindly and fed such amazing food. Every staff member was smiling ear to ear the entire meal service. The welcoming feeling and exquisite cuisine WONT be beat by any other place in the village. Please don't wait as long as we did to try... More

Dawn's is a great little place with terrific food. A must go for anyone looking for a fantastic home cooked type breakfast, lunch or dinner. To me Dawn's is a hole in the wall (that's a compliment) just beside the road in Placencia. My wife and I have ate here three or 4 times in the two times we have... More

Dawn's Grill N Go is just an amazing tiny place with big flavors on the plates! We are always coming back to this lovely place and Dawn's cooking miracles. My wife had a shrimp curry and I had conch creole - both so delicious!!! Dawn's hot sauces are outstanding as well and you must take a couple with you before... More

Dawn has good menu selections and reasonable prices. The service is very pleasant and you can get great local meals including the famous lobster grilled cheese.
