Wonderful food and service on new years eve. We had eaten there the day before and went back as the food and service is SO good. Not exactly tradional Belize cuisine but very high end food with locally sourced food.

Enjoyed my solo breakfasts at this gorgeous beachfront hotel. I had the Belizian breakfast and it was delicious. Other travelers said that the desserts there were heavenly but I never got to try them.

This is the most absolute best restaurant in Belize. It is better than 98% of the restaurants in the US. Beachfront Oceanview five store in every category.

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.
