Placencia old town, is a bit like the Key's must have been in the 60's. The long spit of land jutting into the sea is a small world all its own, of different communities mixed with rapid development of exclusive Resorts etc. This place has...More

We ate here the second last night. Great location on the beach. Imaginative menu. It's a $20 cab ride one way from Placencia but worth it.

Excellent food and drinks, but bring your wallet, like most things you get what you pay for and this place is spendy compared to nearby restaurants.

This restaurant is considered one of the best in Belize. We particularly like the Happy Hour with $4 (Belize) drinks and $8 (Belize) small plates.

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.
