The food is the best I've eaten this week. Perfectly seasoned, adequate portion and served hot. The hostess was spot on with her suggestion. Try the blackened seafood augratin, you won't be disappointed!

seafood chowder was very good according to my chef wife and my nut crusted fish was pretty good. But the accompanying sides had no creativity or effort at all.

We ate dinner here one night, breakfast the next, biking or walking down from the Belize Ocean Club. We were very impressed with both meals and it was one of the best places we ate in Belize. Service and food were excellent. Highly 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.
