My husband and I visited during the day and had drinks and snacks while using the salt water pool. It was relaxing and our waiter, Matthew, was wonderful. We came back a few days later for dinner. It was really delicious. We arrived at 6:30pm...More

Hello Buddy, Thanks for visiting our Bistro. I apologize for timing issues with your courses. While we're more likely to have complaints about things taking too long when we're busy, it was obviously a quiet evening with too few orders in the kitchen at the...More

Great food, great service, all a table looking directly out over a quiet beach and the serene Caribbean. Plus, as guests at the accompanying hotel, we were just a few steps down the beach away from our room. What else can you ask for? We...More

Glad you enjoyed dinner. And sorry you didn't get to try our desserts! That big pork chop is definitely one of the customer favorites, and combining that with the much lighter salad trio was a good idea! I am surprised by your wine comment though...I...More

Food was great, staff was friendly and very helpful! We had a variety of choices to eat and the bread that they brought out was homemade and wonderful. I would call ahead if you have a big party.

A guest at our hotel recommended this place and we were glad they did. Had a great breakfast right on the beach. My wife really enjoyed the coffee. Great way to start a day.

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.
