All I can say is that all the reviews don't exaggerate. This is the best place in and around Placencia. The Lobster Bread Pudding is a MUST EAT dish! Highly recommend!

We Stayed at the Belize Ocean Club - a 8 minute bike ride from here, We left the resort quite often to come to the Maya beach restaurant as the food is delicious, well presented and comes with amazing service. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g291977-d502126-r521449279-Maya_Beach_Hotel-Placencia_Stann_Creek.html#

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.
