We stopped for lunch and even though they were serving fried food they fixed us a grilled lobster tail. They were very nice and welcoming.

We had a lovely evening at Dawn's. This is an open air restaurant and has such a relaxed and casual feel. The food is fresh and amazing. Our family ordered the grilled lobster, and the curried shrimp. Wow, what an amazing meal. We were able to order a liter of water for the whole table as well. Great rum punch!!!... More

Everything is just fantastic at this little place. I commented that I prefer spicy chicken and they made some on the spot. I'd eat here everyday if I could.

The best compliment I can give this place is that you really feel the love of a home cooked meal with family. Momma Dawn and her daughter Jolie were the most genuine people I met while staying in Placencia. My friends and I ate their twice. Both times, we were not disappointed, and yes, both times, we had her key... More

Had lunch here recently. Server had a dour expression on her face the whole time, acted like she had a personal grudge against us. Reasonably priced food but then when I paid her (in US $$) she short-changed me quite a bit. Didn't realize it until we left and I didn't want to go back and confront her as I... More

We had a great lunch here. Very reasonably priced. Dawn loves what she does. She came out to make sure our meal was to our liking and it sure was. Staff was very attentive.

Dawn's place is not tiny. The person who wrote that review has the wrong name. It is a sit down place with more like 8-10 tables and is absolutely delicious. We ate there several times in March and were back there yesterday. Every dish the family had earned rave reviews. And Dawn is absolutely charming. She visited our table while... More

The flavours were exquisite. Each ingredient fresh and the seafood straight from the sea. The food did not last more that 5 minutes on our plates. Service by Jolie, Dawns daughter was friendly and professional. We ordered the fried conch starter which was lip smacking good. I had the grilled shrimp with coconut rice, my husband had the pork chops.... More
