We stayed at a resort nearby where the food was not nearly as good and completely over priced. Unfortunately there is not much close by but Maya Beach Bistro was a short bike ride away. We would have eaten every meal here if we could. The atmosphere is amazing with a breathtaking view.

Great experience. Had a delicious pork burger with bacon inside it...yum. Then dessert was a toffee ice cream cake - mind blowing. Possibly best dessert ever. The real treat was the night before when we got there a little late but they were still kind enough to pour us some drinks and make a quick ceviche for us. A very... More

One of the best restaurants in the area by far. Service was superb, the food was wonderful. Can't wait to go back. We made reservations for our next visit before we left. Have been back for breakfast as well. Worth every visit.

We had dinner and breakfast here several times and it was all wonderful! The cinnamon rolls are amazing! Good drink prices as well! I'd like to see a few more non-seafood items on the menu but it wasn't that big of a deal.

Read about this restaurant before going and their cinnamon buns. Went twice because the first time we went, they didn't have any cinnamon buns/rolls left. We did have the cinnamon roll french toast both times and it was delicious. 2nd time we went we got the cinnamon rolls to go and they were yummy! We did go for dinner on... More

This was our favorite restaurant in Placencia. We frequented it four times throughout our seven day stay, both for breakfast and dinners. The menu is creative and uses lots of local flavors and fresh caught seafood. We went one night for my birthday dinner and the even put a candle in my mango cheesecake. The ambiance is great too, right... More

The food, presentation, setting, service, and selection were great! Plus, the prices were even cheaper than most of the other local restaurants! Would certainly recommend to anyone. Will return when we next visit Placencia.

My wife and I were staying in the nearby Belize Ocean Club Resort and had dinner at the Maya Beach Bistro one evening. The atmosphere is very calm and relaxing, with dramatic views of the beach and ocean from the back dining room. The fish and seafood selection were superb; my wife had grilled Snook with a zucchini and goat... 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.
