Everyone said we should eat here, and they were right! Reservations recommended. Food is delicious. Ambiance is perfect. Casual yet classy. Maybe some of the best food we had while in Belize.

Worth the ride north for a wonderful happy hour and a greatly curated menu. Right on the beach with a wonderful view.

I had the curry fish and potato, it was really good. But the best part of our visit was the pina colada and rum punch!!! LOL

We just returned from a week in Placencia, and by far, the Bistro has the best food and staff in the area. The lobster was in season and was the best we've ever had. So good, we had it back to back nights. Every meal...More

We were lucky to be renting a house right down the beach from this place, so we just kept going there! We liked it so much, we went three nights out of the seven we were in Placencia. We had most things on the menu,...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.
