We loved so many restaurants in Belize but this one was by far our favorite. The food was delicious, well presented, and the vibe was great. The place overlooks the local football/soccer field and we were lucky enough to catch one of the big games (they only happen once in a while).
Firstly, the service was friendly, professional and the owner seemed to be there every night and would come and say hello to all of the tables, which we thought was a really nice touch. The drinks were amazing and considering you are getting big city style cocktails (rum infused fruit, 2 ounce mojitos) the price of $6 US is easily justifiable. Their regular drinks and beer were on par with all the other local bars and restaurants from what I could see, maybe a dollar more.
The food was amazing, really. I wish we had Rumfish in Vancouver! We each ordered a variety of dishes but the ones that stood out were the conch fritters, the fresh tuna pasta (with sundried tomatoes, capers, black olives and sardines), the fish stew and the fish tacos.
We were traveling Belize for 2 weeks on our honeymoon and had we been doing a more backpacking style trip we might not have indulged as much but we are sure glad we did. Even if you are on a tight budget I'd recommend treating yourself at least one night while in Placencia.
