Wonderful food for breakfast, lunch or dinner, plus a great Happy Hour ($4 USA Ceviche!). The food was priced well and you could tell great thought went into the recipes. The staff was excellent as well.

I loved everything about this Bistro ~ the location right on the beach, the wonderful ocean breezes while you're dining al fresco, the friendly, attentive wait staff, the great ambiance and of course, the extraordinary food!!! I had the coconut shrimp, which was the best...More

The food at the Bistro is flavorful and delicious. We recommend the Belizean breakfast for a local (more or less) and filling start to the day. The vegetarian tacos, the layered vegetables, the grilled cheese sandwich (gourmet perfection!) and the pasta were also delicious options...More

The service is as excellent as the food and you can't beat the location right on the beach. AND they let us use their pool, beach, shower after our lunch. Great place.

Fantastic restaurant, we stayed at another resort up the road but came back to the bistro twice during our stay as the food was half the price and ten times as good! Highly recommend, our server was hilarious, courteous and truly complemented the vibe perfectly....More

The trio salads were fantastic and so were the appetizers. The food was well prepared and unique. Just a little expensive.

Awesome! Food, service, view...nothing I didn't like about this place. Lobster was fresh, tender and delicious. Service was excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. Make the trip if you're on the peninsula, it will be well worth it.

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.
