They treat you like family. Actually better!

We stopped here for spicy Creole fish & shrimp and got a warm welcome from the owner and waitress The food was outstanding - local fare with a cajun twist! Apparently, the recipes are all fresh ingredients, made with love and passed down through the family. Clean bathrooms are also a plus!

Although Dawn's Grill doesn't look like much from the outside, it was such an awesome experience inside. Dawn is the absolute best cook! We had fish and chicken that was out of this world. Made me think of my grandmother's cooking when I was a child! Sweet memories. We will be back and back and back again :).

It was one of the best meals I ever ate- Dawn's Cajun Shrimp with rice and beans. I will be dreaming about it until my next visit.

Dawn is very personable and has great food! Also take home some of her excellent hot sauce - a great gift! Highly recommend a stop at this restaurant - eat in or take out.

Out of any restaurant we ate at this is the best fish on the island! Try the grouper creole or curry!

Really good food, on the main drag in Placencia village. Check out the daily specials board. It's simple fare in a little shack-type setup but very good. If you don't see what you want on the menu, just ask Dawn and she will try to accommodate you.

There isn't many places where you can get a great porter house steak, with rice&peas, plantain and home made chilli sauce. This family run restaurant is a must visit.
