This was my favourite restaurant in Placentia. It has great food and wine and a fun atmosphere. A tad pricey but worth it.

So for anyone who has travelled in the tropics knows, finding a restaurant that has a wine list is at treat, but only if has great wines that are treated properly... and the logistics of getting wine to Placencia in good condition are a challenge the Rumfish y vino live up to. The manager of the restaurant promised us that... More

Stopped here for our last nights supper. It has mainly fish selections, but there are meat entrees as well. On special for appy was a lionfish served raw with seasonings. Since we wanted to help eradicate the lionfish population, we figured it was one more different fish to try. Delicate and tasty. We also had red snapper curry and pescado... More

I ordered the taco plate that included one of each of the three tacos. The food was fine, nothing wrong with it, but was far from amazing and way overpriced based on the quality. "Fine" food in Belize should cold about half as much. The service was also poor. We got there right when they opened for lunch so it... More

We stopped in here a few time about 4ish and stayed until about 7PM having cocktails and dinner. We like this venue because of the elevation of the second floor lets you look over the street below; great for people watching. The food was decent, the service is good. If you need WiFi, however, you'll have to forego the streetside... More

We ate on the deck overlooking the street. The lights and the flowering plants give it a nice atmosphere. We had decent but not great service to start, but by the end needed to find someone to pay our check. While what we ordered was good, it was fairly expensive for Belize. My husband asked about the "Snook special" on... More

We were approached by 4 staff members which made our arrival kind of hectic. It took awhile for some one to come and take our order. The food was fresh and good.
