I had the pleasure of dining here 4 times during a 2 week vacation with my boyfriend, my son and another couple. Every meal we had was excellent, but the cacoa pork chop is a culinary masterpiece, in my humble opinion. The service was also...More

The 2 dinners were both excellent, including a fantastic dessert. The staff was very attentive without hovering. A very delightful dining experience and well worth the cost. Reservations are recommended.

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.
