This was an unexpected encounter that we had in Placencia! Yoli and her husband Regan own an off-the-beaten-path Palapa Bar, which is the hub of the village. We happened upon their place the first Sunday we were on the peninsula as we were checking out our accommodations at the Paradise Resort. We were smitten by the smell of incredible barbeque....

This bar can be hard to find but is worth the effort. Located over the water just south of the village it can be hard to find so you may need to ask any local how to get there. Service is great and quick. This is a favorite of the local expat community and have free live music on Wed... More

Just went and spent a few hours at Yoli's not far from the house we are renting. Sat us in a nice breezy spot over the water and had a few drinks and awesome BBQ ribs. Met the owner and his wife - very friendly. Everyone that dropped by was glad to see everyone else. Nice rustic spot with shade... More

Yoli and Reagan are simply the best. The hospitality they show is out of this world. All their recommendations were spot on. The location is great and has an amazing breeze. The Sunday BBQ was fantastic. Our last minute trip to Belize would not have been the same had we not stumbled into this place.

When it's stifling hot in Belize, this over-the-water bar and grill is the place to be for a cold drink and some BBQ. Nice and relaxing.

We spent most of our afternoons hanging at Yoli's relaxing with a drink and playing the Ring Game. The staff makes everyone feel at home and a part of the family in this friendly laid back Beach Bar. I'd like to keep it a secret, but we really should share.

Walked in by chance, met friendly people at the bar, then noticed there was going t o be a rotary lunch meeting. Being a Rotarian ourselves we joined the group for lunch and met a dozen new friends. What a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. Our food and drinks were great, company was fabulous.

You haven't lived until you've been to Yoli's. Likely one of the only bars that boast a dock for you to pull up in your boat. Although they don't offer a menu, they often have special 'wing' days. After you've gnawed the meat off the bone, you toss the leftovers into the water beside you and watch the fish have... More

Yoli's Bar and Grill is off the main beaten path at the end of the Placencia peninsula. If you are visiting by boat, you can dock at the bar...or if you are coming by land, when you arrive, you will be pretty much at the end of the peninsula. Great food...great drinks...good company. All open air dining and drinking and... More
