Bottom line up front: Unimpressed; this place has the "#1 on TripAdvisor" halo. The mojito and margarita were very wattery. The garlic starter with goat cheese was good. The fish tacos were skimpy on the fish and the tortillas were falling apart when the plate...More

We had two fabulous dinners at this bistro. Inventive dishes inspired by Belizean spices and locally grown stuff. The best food in Placencia.

My friend, a local, took me here for Happy Hour. This is a beautiful intimate resort with dining on the beach and poolside. The Happy Hour drinks and appetizers were delicious and reasonably priced. Our server was friendly and attentive.

Thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant and bar selection. We stayed at the resort up the road and discovered this place. One we did we dined here instead of resort every chance we could.

Spent time with my wife in condos adjacent to this restaurant. Lovely atmosphere, great drinks, generous and creative small plates for dinner and mains were all well above average. Breakfast menu was also very good. Servers were delightful, polishing their English language skills, engaged but...More

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.
