“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We initially came here for a Rotary Club meeting and ended up eating lunch (chicken & rice...delicious!). We were excited to find out the bar was on the beach dock overlooking the water. If we had known what a great location this was we would have came sooner! Shocked to find out not many knew about this place. This is the perfect little spot to have a beer and watch the boats sail in & out of view.

“Yoli's - best little bay bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Great spot on the bay to watch the sunset. We managed to get into the ring toss tourney with a bunch of locals and ex-pats. Yoli and the staff are fantastic. I had visited Belize as a child and it turns out our family had rented Yoli's Aunt's house back in the '80s! Small world! This is my go to spot every time I'm in Placencia.

“great location, not the nicest staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

We didn't eat because there wasn't any food served (except for sundays so we heard) but we did go for drinks a few times. The only reason for returning was location. The spot was cool and breezy and over the water. If you are looking to get a drink with a smile and a thank you, this is not the place.

“Grill Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

We had chicken and ribs at Yolis. It is a great place to eat with a friendly atmosphere. We are looking forward to returning to Placencia in 2015 and will return to Yolis for dinner. It is very scenic with a nice dock over the water. Highly recommended!!

“Great atmosphere, food and music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

We have visited Placencia over the last years several times in our travels. The place is unique, drawing business from boaters and others who have heard through the "grape vine" that you MUST go to Yoli's at least once. We went almost everyday. The bartender Eric is very attentive, the bbq on Friday and Sunday is very good and worth trying. On Friday there is life music. Sunday is a ring tossing contest with many competitive locals coming out to compete. If you are in Placencia, this place is a must do!! It's not on the main street but well worth the walk.
