“great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

this is a great little restaurant -- the chef/owner came out to greet us, to offer us tastes of the fried plantain patties she was working on, and to chat. I had grilled lobster -- delicious. Bread pudding with rum sauce? Why not. It's vacation. Great food and quick (for Placencia) service.

“Incredible Meal with an Exceptional Host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

A group of friends and I came to Dawn's for dinner and had a great experience. The lion fish prepared in a creole style (tomato based sauce) was to die for. I also tried a bite of the shrimp curry and the sweet and sour fish dinners; all were fantastic. Not only was the food amazing, but the chef, Dawn herself, was very welcoming and friendly. She told us that she prepares her food by order and would be willing to substitute anything if we wanted it, so I'm sure she would be very friendly to anyone with food allergies. Overall great experience and highly recommended!

“Best meal in Placencia.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Looking take advantage of as much of the Belizean cuisine at hand, we came through for dinner after having passed by during lunch and getting wafts of the most alluring smell of Dawn's grilled lunch specials. And with grilled shrimp on the menu, my guy was sold on Dawn's for dinner. Having a seat on the open-air porch, we were greeted by the server as well as Dawn, the owner and chef, who was very warm and welcoming, as if she were inviting us into her home. I ordered her pork chops, he got his shrimp. The chop was incredible; with grilled onions and a mushroom sauce (a light sauce, not heavy as you might think) the pork chop was juicy alone, and with the onion/mushroom finish, was deliciously brilliant. And as for the grilled shrimp, not only were they decadent, but the first shrimp we've had that were not overcooked. We finished the shrimp off with Dawn's homemade habanero sauce, which does not only pack heat but much flavor. And she has bottles of her sauce for sale - highly suggested. When in town looking for lunch or dinner, Dawn's must be on the list.

We had lunch that Dawn's Grill N Go when we first arrived. Good lunch food. Dinner was lamb and it was lack luster.

“Excellent Breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We have eaten breakfast more than once at Dawn's Grill n Go. Excellent Belizean breakfast and fry jacks! Highly recommend. Dawn, the owner, is very friendly. Patty was a very attentive waitress. Don't miss eating here when you visit Placencia Village.
