It was a somewhat windy evening and we sat out on the balcony. The depth of the patio meant the strong wind was felt as a comfortable breeze at our table. Looking out at the ocean and their small dock made for a very romantic...More

We dropped in for happy hour, and had a few appetizers and drinks. The setting was pleasant, ocean view and ocean breezes. The food tasted good and the drinks were nice. Happy hour prices are quite reasonable, as well.

When I see "bistro" I think half a goldfish with a sprig of parsley. Not so here. Excellent food, great service, ample servings, and fantastic on the beach open to the sea breeze seating. Eat here!

Every meal was like art in the presentation. Try the watermelon salad, very refreshing with great flavor. Neat place to enjoy happy hour too with the locals.

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.
