Went over for some Eggs Benedict and it was off the hook! It was well presented and tasted delicious! The staff is really friendly too! Don't debate too much as to where to go for breakfast, go to Bistro, you will not regret it!

Our favorite happy hour stop. Had our anniversary dinner there, probably the best meal we had in Belize in 2 months.

We ate at the Bistro 3 times and all meals were excellent. The fresh fish was properly prepared and not over cooked. Highly recommend 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.
