My wife and I had a WONDERFUL dinner at Dawn’s. We were a little confused at first, because Dawn’s restaurant isn’t operating out of it’s usual space on Placencia Rd, and is instead operating out of the Galley, behind the football field. Once we figured...that out, I sent a message to her on Facebook requesting a reservation. Dawn was an amazing host and chef! She was so friendly and so helpful. Her daughter was our server and was also extremely kind and very fun to talk to. Both Dawn and her daughter checked up on us after each course to see how we were enjoying things. I highly recommend the conch fritters, creole fish, and curried lobster. So, so good.More

When ever we return to placencia, Dawns is our favourite place for traditional belizean breakfast and lunch/dinner. Belizean flavours, served with a smile. The conch is the best we have enjoyed in Belize. Go here for a relaxed breakfast of fry jack or if your...craving try fry dry snapper.More

Everyone raves about the breakfast burritos here so of course we had to try them. They are great!! We also had to try the local fried jacks and they were a great breakfast dessert with their housemade guava jelly! Super friendly staff

It is apparent that the majority of restaurants are resting on previous good reviews and this place is no different. Over cooked or under done, was our three dishes. Cute venue and friendly staff but street food priced at mid market prices with no attempt...at presentation or even fresh ingredients. DisappointingMore

Had the stewed conch as part of a fish trio for 50 USD and the conch was very chewy and the other fish was OK.

We have been going to Dawn's for years. Anytime we are in Placencia we plan for at least 1 meal here. I always get the lobster dinner and my wife usually gets a curry fresh catch dinner with coconut rice. It is a very small...place with a few tables, which we also like. The place has good local atmosphere that we always look forward to. See you soon Dawn!More

Had a bit of a wait to get into the place but it was worth it. Grilled lobster tail with coconut rice was delicious. Wait staff was super friendly.

It is a very small restaurant with good, fresh food. I doubt their menu is online. Most of the restaurants where we ate in Beliz have fresh seafood - whatever was caught that day - rice, beans, and salad. The dish I ate... More
