Dawn's Grill n Go is one of our Go To meals in Placencia. FRESH fish, we once decided on lobster after watching the fisherman deliver his catch! Sometimes we stay and enjoy the Jazz in the background of this unpretentious, cozy spot, and sometimes we take it back to the beach to enjoy in our own space. Either way, delicious... More

We stopped for a quick lunch, and it turned out to be some of the best beans and rice and barbecue chicken of our trip. Dawn herself served us, and she was delightful. Highly recommended.

From the welcome upon arrival to the thank you for coming Dawn's is pure wonderful home cooking served with warm hospitality and without a doubt the greatest breakfast sandwich in Belize!

We went there twice in two days. Dawn has a special seasoning that is out of this world. We also got the lobster tail and it too was delicious.

The only reason I don't give this restaurant a 5 star rating is because it's right on the road. Not the best setting, but the food is great! Get it to go and take it to the beach!

We went there in past years and enjoyed it more when the music wasn't blaring. The food is always good. Come on Dawn, turn down the stereo and let us eat in peace!
