We picked up a couple of sandwiches to go from Gunter, for our road trip down to Punta Gorda. The on premise smoked ham and roast beef, along with the fresh bread were great. You could tell these sandwiches were made with care and, not just thrown together.

We had lunch here twice. Both times the sandwiches were very good. This place is adjacent to Habaneros at Robert's Grove. You can also get breakfast type foods and coffee drinks. I would recommend this place.

Thought we'd find French pastries, but they were relatively tasteless, not flaky and not what I was expecting. That said, it was edible, and their sandwiches are great to take along for a day out on the water.

Dear Skiingal thank you for your review of Mathieu's Deli at Robert's Grove. We do not purport to be a "french bakery" and nowhere is it advertised as such, we are a "Bakery, deli gourmet, sandwiches, wines" - perhaps you expected you'd find french pastries because of the name Mathieu's - that happens to be the name of the German...

I really enjoyed a tasty breakfast sandwich. Plus, the outdoor seating and view are lovely. Service was great.

Located in the Habanero’s Restaurant across from (and part of) Robert’s Grove, this gem is a re-locate from the San Pedro area of Belize. After our first warm welcome from Mathieu himself (with lots of samples) we made several return trips for the fantastic cold meats and cheeses (from Belize-based Caves Branch). We also sampled (and purchased) several of the... More

Belize is not known for good bakery and especially not good bread so how wonderful to get some excellant bread. We also had breakfast here one morning and it was excellant as well. They also have a good selection of cheeses that are also hard to find in Belize.

This past weekend I picked up a 50' Lagoon Catamaran in Placencia, Belize to deliver to San Pedro, Belize; a trip of 105 miles over two days. I contacted Mathieu's Delicatessen in Placencia as I'd heard they were doing provisioning out of their restaurant and knew that I had to fuel up at the marina. I was also on a... More

Was a great place, and the bread was wonderful... So sad the couple that ran it moved to another part of Belize :*(

Dear B T thanks for your thoughts, and we too are sorry that we had to leave San Pedro. We have moved Mathieu's to the wonderful Robert's Grove in Placencia - where Gunter is getting to express his creativity with four restaurants and a full, big deli space. Unfortunately although we had tried over the course of two years to... More

Only the freshest salads and sandwiches will do for this impeccable chef! My wife and I came for lunch one afternoon and were totally impressed with the flavors that we thoroughly enjoyed. We were told about a special dinner that was planed for the following evening which involved a throw down labeled "East meets West" What an evening of great... More
