We just arrived to Placencia after a 31 hour travel day and were hungry for some good local food. We could smell the delicious food before even seeing her restaurant. We literally let our nose guide us! Dawns is amazing! If your on a budget the prices here are the best. Everything was super clean and quaint the service amazing.... More

I don't need to say anything more than just go there some day for lunch or dinner. Eat whatever Dawn has available that day. Chat with her daughter and enjoy the moment.

A group of six of us visited Dawn's Grill for an evening meal. We had heard that it was a "Must Visit" when in Placencia. We all agree and give it an Excellent Review. We had the shrimp ceviche , Porter house Steak, gibnat stew, and Fish. Dawn herself was our cook and her daughter was our server. It was... More

We were in Placentia in October and ate many meals at Dawn's. Having many allergies I find it very hard to eat out, but Dawn stated "I WILL cook food for you that you can eat, no one leaves my grill hungry", and she was right! She found something to cook for me and each meal was delicious and freshly... More

We have visited Placencia every winter for many years and we keep coming back to Dawn's. We love her commitment to excellent quality food served with a smile at a reasonable price. The small 'Grill and Go' is an unpretentious place, conveniently located in the middle of town. We often have the grilled fish or chicken and of course the... More

Well, again we were served by Dawn herself and it was a delight to have breakfast thre. My husband had his favorite fried Jacks, and eggs and sausage , I had the breakfast burrito , then we had a very special Juice Tamarin juice. It all tasted so good. To see Dawns happy face and her attention to us was... More

Dawn's has great food served up by a friendly local who knows how to make people feel welcome. We had breakfast and dinner there, and she is open all day for lunch as well. The service was great and food was brought out quickly. She even was a great help in recommending some local secrets to us by way of... More

Dawn is almost always there to give you a great meal and a big smile. Her menu isn't real big, but she always has a few specials everyday. Dawn's family goes way back in the restaurant business in Placencia. She grew up watching and cooking with her mom. Needless to say, the meals are always great.

We loved Dawn's. Great service, very friendly and welcoming. It isn't a big menu, but you can't go wrong with any of the options. The flavors were great. Very strong and they melded well together. I had garlic shrimp and my husband had the creole shrimp. Dawn's is listed in the guide book as a must go and we agree.
