Snapper was the fish of the day. The daily happy hour has half price drinks and the staff was very good. Highly recommend this bistro.

Quaint small resort with the #1 Bistro in all of Placencia! If you don't stay here, be sure to take time for lunch or dinner. You will NOT be disappointed.

Awesome. Best breakfast in Placencia. Try the duck sausage hash or cinnamon rolls. Dinner is also one of my favorite places to go.

Very inventive menu, great taste, on the beach with a nice pool. Bring your bathing suit and spend the day. My favorite dish is the banana shrimp boat - shrimp and bacon on a banana covered with cheeses and grilled on their own French baguette....More

We came here for lunch with some friends, and this place is amazing. My husband had the fish and chips, and I had the banana boat baguette. Both dishes were super tasty and the scenery was breathtaking

The food here was excellent, the best during our week in Placencia. In fact, even the children's menu was exceptionally good, especially the fish sliders. And the desserts were spectacular, freshly prepared daily! The restaurant is on the beach, with great breezes and the sounds...More

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.
