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.

Amazing menu, and great service. You should be prepared to book well in advance however, as the reservation book fills up fast! We found this gem late in our trip or we would have become regulars!

We have been there twice now and both meals were excellent. The gnocchi and shrimp stuffed squid is to die for. The service is first class very attentive and friendly.

This little bistro had a wide variety of choices for all eaters. Being vegan, I was able to get a gourmet meal with no trouble. Good quality ingredients and excellent service. The dining room was a covered deck that offered great views of the water and beach.

We stopped here on New Year's day in order to secure a booking for dinner. Our rental car broke down and so we happily stayed for lunch. The hotel handy man fixed our car. We came back for dinner. An excellent meal to start the year! We came back on our last night in Placencia after having eaten our way around to many of the best ranked restaurants on Trip Advisor - Maya Beach food and service is really the best there is on Placencia and even good by NYC standards! We thoroughly enjoyed the food, wine and especially the very pleasant service, both at lunch and dinner.
