The trio salads were fantastic and so were the appetizers. The food was well prepared and unique. Just a little expensive.

Awesome! Food, service, view...nothing I didn't like about this place. Lobster was fresh, tender and delicious. Service was excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. Make the trip if you're on the peninsula, it will be well worth it.

Our vacation rental was right next to Maya Beach bistro so we ate here quite often. Nice view, a bit expensive but worth it. Not one bad meal here.

Every meal was delicious and the atmosphere is impeccable. Great price! Had breakfast and dinner several times. Never got tired of it and the staff were very friendly. Make reservations due to being the best restaurant in town.

You have to try their Cacao Pork, but all their food is exquisite. The food is so good and when you get your bill, you will literally want to pay more because it's a crime how affordable it is. The staff is good but they...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.
