  • Maya Beach Hotel Bistro: My new reason to go to Placencia more often

    by disndat Written Sep 8, 2011

    Heard about this place recently so visited while staying in the village for weekend in August. We had a car so it wasn't a problem to going to Maya Beach for a meal. I have never tasted fish like this before. 3 of us had fish from the menu with watermelon sauce, it was really really good. I also tried the moho chicken dish which to me was really excellent, and spicy! The waiter was so nice and the owners came by to talk to us for quite a while. They are not Belizean but they really gave me the feeling they like Belizean customers and tourists all the same. Oh, I can't forget the desert. Yum yum yum! I heard it was expensive but it really wasn't that bad, for the money you really got a lot and it was just so interesting. I loved it and I will go back again. I understand now when people talk about the "Bistro".

    Favorite Dish: Watermelon curry fish

    Really delicious tapas and small plates. This chic place has a really hip vibe with great music. You have to try the coconut mojito, it was the best drink we had in Belize. Its a little more expensive than alot of the restaurants in Placencia, but still cheaper than what you would pay for something similar in the US.

    Yoli's: Best in Belize

    by kimberlyfisher1 Updated Feb 24, 2009

    If you are looking for the "Cheers" bar in Belize, head to Yoli's. The owner, Yoli, is a doll, and everyone you meet is so friendly and helpful. Located right on the water, you have an amazing view and the food and drinks are are the prices!

    La Dolce Vita: A Surprisingly Good Italian Restaurant

    by Paul2001 Updated May 4, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The La Dolci Vita was the location of my first dinner in Placencia. It was a pretty good option. I was very much surprised to find a decent Italian restaurant in Southern Belize. It is not much to look at from outside but once you enter you feel that you have entered Italy. There are photos of Felline movies on the wall. The decor was very Italian. The owner is in fact from Italy. The place was doing pretty steady business during my time inside and I guess the word has caught on.

    Favorite Dish: I had a large chicken parmasen meal. It was quite good.

  • French Connection: This place is special. Must try

    by timinfrance Updated Mar 29, 2007

    This new place is not in the best location in Placencia and is not easy to find ( turn down the alley opposite young the barefoot bar or the Chinese supermarket.) However, it is certainly worth the effort. The Chef, Marcus, is English with wide experience and training in Europe and it shows. This is top notch French food which would rate a star in my homeland of France. We tried Garlic soup, and a wonderful carpaccio of tuna followed by brochette of lobster and grouper and delicious local venison. All wonderful and served with style by Anna, Marcus' Swedish wife. A good and ( for Belize) not expensive wine list and a pleasant cool atmosphere make this a really special place to go and miles away from the routine bar food available everywhere else. Go soon before they are 'discovered'.

    Its all good but his fish ( whatever the fishermen bring in) is astounding

    Theme: French

    Favorite Dish: His soups are wonderful but its all good. He makes his own bread and it is worth going just for that!
