Danube is currently closed. In its place is Buddy's bar/grill and slot machine place. The new place just opened mid-August. In their favor they have about 20 slot machines and the owner used to work in Las Vegas so he knows what he's doing. If you are looking for Austrian food, you can't find it here. If you are looking... More

Like the restaurant's website says, it's a bit of Europe in Belize. The schnitzel was wonderful. A good contrast to the local food.

On our yearly trip to Belize we always make sure to go to the Danube! There is a wonderful choice of Austrian and local dishes. I enjoy the local fresh fish dishes that are carefully spiced and cooked by the gifted chef Herbert. The wine choices are expansive. This stop is must for scuba divers as Herbert and Simone's knowledge... More

We could have sit and talk with her the entire night. Herbert is an exceptional cook. We tried the tapanada and we fell in love. We will definitely be going back to try more... More

Our group walked into this place on a Wednesday night after a week of sailing. it's operated by Herbert & Simone, and they catered to our every whim. if you enjoy Austrian / German food, it's your place. We really enjoyed it.

This was a great experience while we were in Placencia. I wish we would have gone a few more times before we left. We happened upon the restaurant towards the end of our visit in Belize. The service is impeccable and the food is a break from the norm in that area. The husband and wife team are amazing and... More

When you want a little break from the ordinary, Danube restaurant is just the thing--possibly the only Austrian restaurant in all of Central America. A charming yellow house at the south end of Sein Bight on east side the main North-South road, within easy walking distance of both Laru Beya Resort and Robert's Grove, is marked with a "Danube Restaurant"...
