I can't say enough good things about Maya Bistro- their food is unparalleled, their wine selection is well thought out, their staff is always friendly and the owners always make a point of saying hi. I love taking a drink to the end of their...More

I ate here with a large group the first time and everything was delicious. They make a seafood chowder that's amazing! I went back a second time on my last night in Belize and it was just as good.

So glad we tried this place before our last night, we went again the very next/last night. The fish was great, the service amazing. I had the baked fish on spicy vegetables and my wife the conch. Both were wonderful. Highly recommend.

Until this restaurant, I thought Runaway Hill on Harbor Island, Bahamas had the best and most creative dishes I had eaten, but probably not anymore. Voted "Best food in Belize" 2 years running, I would say maybe the best food anywhere. Outstanding dishes prepared perfectly...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.
