It's been three years I didn't visit Placencia. I remember the first night I landed, I had a very tasty grilled fish at Dawn's Grill and Go. It was a rustic family managed place. Very simple, clean and friendly with good food and a fresh Belikin to accompany your meal at a very good price. I came back this year... More

We ate here twice while in Placencia and I really liked it. Good conch ceviche and the meals were very good. The daughter who serves is charming and really helpful. She also edits the local newspaper! I understand that her mom is the cook. Recommended if you want good food, good service and good prices.

What a cute little place, easy to find and the food was definitely home-cooked with love. I think I enjoyed chatting with Dawn just as much as I enjoyed her food. She shared her secrets to making amazing fresh tortillas, we had freshly squeezed tropical juice and everything was so wonderful we came back again for our last breakfast in... More

We only ate breakfast there, but she made jacks to die for. She definitely had the best rum punch! The service was great also. Would I go back? In a heartbeat!

Reasonably priced food (paid 24B$ for fish curry) and super friendly staff! There's also lots of choice here for around 10-20B$. Definitely recommend visiting when in Placencia.

Without at doubt this place has the coldest beer in Placencia. Ice forming on the outside of the bottle, as it should be in a tropical place. The food was very good and very economical. We tried the fried fish and stewed beef, and both were excellent. The coconut rice with stewed beans is excellent. The menu is kind of... More

Dawn's was our first lunch stop while in Belize based on the reviews. You walk in and get whatever the special of the day is (there is no menu). If they are only making one thing, you know it's good! They change the menu daily and make whatever is fresh that day. They have a house hot sauce (both red... More

Good straight forward food. Prices were a little better than other restaurants in the somewhat overpriced town of Placentia.
