Great food and amazing beach views make the Bistro a local favorite in Placencia. The restaurant is set right on the beach overlooking beautiful palm trees and a pier and palapa with hammocks. The breeze coming in from the ocean is so refreshing. My wife...More

This is one of the fancier restaurants in the Placencia region, although the temperatures always make things more casual in this region no matter where you are. The food here is what you would expect. Seafood heavy menu but the food is packing a little...More

The lobster bread pudding was very interesting and tasty, but the best appetizer was the blackened seafood us gratin. Our favorite dessert was the peanut brittle pie. Very pleasant experience.

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.
