The food was delicious! We loved every item we tried. The Happy Hour specials were a great deal and we were able to sample a few things every day. The menu was creative and had a special flair using local ingredients.

Lobster is fresh and delicious. The sandwich is veg enough for 2 adults. Comes with local vegetable soup. Chocolate soufflé was worth the 15 minute wait. The 3-5 appetizer menu offers a huge variety of appetizers. I will always go there when in Placencia!

We ate dinner at this restaurant and it was our best meal in Placencia. The ambiance was beautiful and the service was excellent. It was a bit expensive to get to and from the Placencia village, but it was worth it!

Not a bad place to eat, although my husband who doesn’t eat seafood had very limited choices and as such wasn’t too impressed. Pretty view of the beach. $100 For 5 people was very reasonable ( without drinks or dessert)

Maybe the best food in the Placencia area! Very talented chef offering high end quality food. They have an impressive wine list, but also offer good value beer and cocktail options. Great for lunch and dinner!

The food at Maya Beach Bistro was absolute perfection! I had the lobster main course and it was the best I’ve had anywhere in the world. Additionally, the staff was so thoughtful and considerate. Planning to return ASAP!

I went here for dinner and breakfast. Both meals were fantastic, a bit higher end in pricing but worth it. The sitting is also great as you are right on the beach. For dinner I went during sunset and was able to sit and watch...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.
