The breakfast burrito was excellent and very filling. For dinner, we had the nut encrusted fish fillet and angel hair pasta. Both were very good. Leave room for dessert!

Some of the best we found in Placencia. The Leek Flan with Conch and the Pork Chops were highlights. We ate theire with a large crew including my infant grandson. Everyone found dishes they liked. Service typically Belizean friendly. .

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.
