Description: 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.

Excellent food. Excellent atmosphere. Excellent hosts in John and Ellen. Unusual and creative dinners, appetizers and drinks. Best wine cellar in Belize. In fact, best restaurant in Belize for my money.

My wife and I had a fantastic dinner at the Maya Beach Bistro. The food was reasonably priced and very tasty. We got a lot of small plates and a fantastic bottle of wine. The setting next to the beach is excellent.

What a delight to have such a wonderful place in laid back Placencia. The nut encrusted fish filet is extraordinary and the lime pie is pretty much heaven on earth.
The view of the beach and sea is wonderful and add to the warm and friendly environment.
The only potential concern is that Maya Beach is a 30 minute drive from Placencia so a rental car or a long taxi ride will be a part of the evening.

Breakfast here 2 days in a row and it was great! Loved the cinnamon roll french toast! My egg white impetus was also great. Ellen is a great host and Becky was a great waitress. Will be back again soon.
