We were there during high season, spring break, and that is worth noting because they were very busy. Reservations required and they were "on it" in terms of trying to make sure they turn their tables. Considering it's a significant revenue period for them, we...More

This place was so good that we broke our rule and ate here twice. The porkchop is probably the best I’ve ever had. Beautiful ambiance. Like every beachfront restaurant in Belize, wear bug spray.

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.
