Included some commentary about this in my review of the Maya Beach Hotel, but the Bistro is outstanding. We ate there for a majority of our meals during our stay in Placencia and probably should have eaten there for all of them. The coconut and...More

Very well prepared, great service. Shrimp French toast appetizer was scrumptious. Generous ceviche. Definitely recommend a reservation, maybe even at least a day in advance. Comparable pricing to Green Parrot down the road, but so much better in quality/quantity of the food & service.

Stopped for a dinner one night. Food was good, but the prices are way above what you will find in the local area. I guess it is a one night stop for a special event.More

Hi! Thanks for visiting our restaurant! I'm glad you liked the food. I just wanted to mention that we price our entire menu in the local currency of Belize dollars, which are exchanged at $2/1 for US Dollars. So our $28 pasta on the dinner...More

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.
