Great home cooking

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.

Loved Dawn's. She took the time to talk to us and ask us what we would like. She would help suggest meals and was very friendly. Even made a nice chicken dish for my son which he ate (he was very picky the rest of the week so this was nice). We didn't eat anywhere more than once while we... More

Creole fish is the best! Must go! We tried Gibnut, lobster, fish, shrimp, and the burgers... All were amazing! Cleanest bathrooms in Belize!

We had the lobster tail both visits, and it was excellent. The deluxe burger is one of the best we've ever had anywhere. Dawn is very friendly and will come out and visit once all the food has been served. If it's really busy it may take a little while to get the food since she's the only one cooking... More

This is the best meal we had in Placencia - without a doubt. We were a party of 4 - 2 adults and 2 kids. My son had a burger which he said was excellent. The rest of us had seafood - fried shrimp, grilled snapper and a special crab curry soup. The shrimp and fish were done perfectly! My... More
