Description: We're certainly far from perfect, but we do try our best to create a winning experience for every single customer, whether they are hotel guests, Belizean neighbors or travelers staying at other hotels. Try pairing small plates with wines, choose from our creative main courses, or just enjoy some comfort food for breakfast or lunch. It's fun for us to meet new people and, well, just make them happy! Our casual beach bistro focuses on unique sauces and contemporary, tropical-themed flavor combinations while maintaining comfortable portions. Lots of fish and seafood. Bar service includes a 130-bottle wine list, local beer, rum drinks, and house specials. The outdoor atmosphere is casual so you can be comfortable in flip flops. Belize's "Restaurant of the Year" award was presented twice to the Bistro in June 2011 and May 2013.

Excellent food, very reasonable prices, clean, pleasant, great atmosphere. Went with a group of locals who said this restaurant was voted "best in Belize, 2012". The mushroom appetizer is to die for.

...Her to marry me. That's right, this is my girlfriend's favorite restaurant in the world so after an excellent meal, we walked out on the dock and I popped the question. It was a very special moment made better by the fact that everything was perfect that night. Thanks again to the Bistro, you can be certain that we will return many times in the future!

We have been to Placencia now anually for at least 5 yrs. in a row, some years twice. We have stayed at different locations and eaten at different restaurants, but none compare to the Bistro. From the accomodations, to the meals, to the drinks, to the staff and owners, there is no better place. The staff greats you each time by name, we have never had a bad meal (nor has our picky son :)), and the people we have taken with us always want to return as well. Our last stay was in July of this year and we are already planning another trip back. I had planned to post this way back when, but never seem to remember or have the time. This is 5 star dining at a 3 star price. I hesitate to continue as I don't want the world being let in on our paradise place. They make being away from home, feel like home. We can't wait to return in a few months.

We were staying down the road, and ate here twice. Were impressed with the flavor combinations in the sauces, and loved everything we ordered. Also loved the beach side seating. Highly recommend it if you are looking for something a little nicer.
