After living in Belize City for the last 8 months and being a red seal chef back in Canada I was craving some 'real' gourmet cuisine. So I googled where to find it. After 2 days of reading reviews we took the 3 plus hour...More

We had the best food and drinks here during our stay! It is one of the few “sophisticated” places in Placencia. Wonderful wine bar and food was great! Fish sandwich, shrimp poor boy and fish tacos were amazing! Great service too with a view!

Our hotel recommended Maya Beach Bistro for a casual lunch. We found the service to be prompt and the food to be good both in terms of quality and value. Definitely a good stop on your way down the peninsula.

Description
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.
