The food, decor, and service are top notch at Mojo!! I only wish we had found it before our last night in Belize. The music that night was awesome. I think the singer's name was Carl. We tried a few appetizers. The coconut shrimp and the garnaches were excellent. For dinner, we have the fish and the pork chops. They were both excellent as well. The presentation and fresh flowers were a nice touch as well. The staff was extremely attentive!

Probably a good drinking place but limited seating for those who dine rather than wine. Satisfactory food, not really our music but probably appreciated by many, OK but no more.

A relative newcomer to the Placencia scene, Mojo's has quickly become a popular hangout for drinks and dinner. A nice friendly atmosphere, creative dishes that use a good amount of local ingredients (more than most anyway), and some original cocktails make for a nice experience. The decor is certainly an upgrade from the Hidden Falls, which used to be in the same upstairs locale. The space is still pretty small though, which makes for cramped and uncomfortable seating in some places (get on the balcony if you can), and the indoors can definitely get too hot and stuffy. I have to say that after 40 years of eating fried chicken all over Belize, the fried breast cutlet I had on my pasta was about the best I have ever had, light, crisp and moist. I have been getting flashbacks to that dish - it is something I will remember for a long time. And the prices are moderate - certainly compared to other fancy restaurant-bar dining spots with balconies in Placencia.

Absolutely amazing dining experience! If you travel to Placencia, you MUST stop by Mojo Lounge and have a drink (or two or three) and have a meal! The owner is the most genuine soul you could meet, the drinks are FUN and have a story behind them (just ask), and the food is....so delicious I don't even know how to put it into words. The best way I can describe the food is to say that you can taste LOVE in the food. LOVE for Placencia, LOVE for the customers, LOVE for life!! This restaurant was highly recommended by the locals and there is a definite reason why. If you want to have a great time and re-charge your soul...stop by.

The Decor is artsy, and relaxing and soothing music playes in the background. Food was very well prepared and delicious, drinks were very good and reasonably priced. The staff is professional, and very attentive. I've been there multiple times and left each time thinking, that when Mojo becomes well known, you will not be able to just walk up and go in for drinks and food(dinner or appitizers). You will need reservations hours in advance!!
