My husband and I just got back from Belize and wanted to share a tip about a great restaurant just outside of Placencia called the Maya Beach Bistro. The owners are expats and have created a very upscale restaurant within steps from the beach. They love what they do and are passionate about creating upscale caribbean dishes. The jerk fish empanadas, ceviche and fish tacos were really good. Also, the shrimp pizza with Goat Cheese and tomato chutney was amazing. They also have a very good wine list for the area.
Most of the food in Belize was fairly standard stuff so wanted to pass along a little gem for people who are traveling to Belize and looking for good food.
