After hitting a different restaurant for lunch and dinner every day we finally decided to try Dawn's Grill & Go. Had we eaten here sooner this would have been the one spot we would have gone back to multiple times. Every time we walked past...More

My husband and I had heard several people rave about Dawn's, so we were excited to visit this little restaurant. We were quickly greeted by the waitress, who explained the menu on the chalkboard and provided us with drink menus. For such a small place,...More

I had the conch in creole sauce with salad and rice and beans. It was very flavourful!! I have eaten her several times and it has always been good. I would recommend it to anyone. The food is good and reasonably priced.

Great find and you must eat here if you are in Placencia. Although the building doesn't look special from the outside it has a nice relaxing feel once inside. The menu is selective, specialising with local seafood dishes, but also offers a few meat options....More

I agree with previous travelers. You don't need to reserve, but if you in a group, then just stop by some time before meal and book for the many of you. Most especially, enjoy your meal! :)
