Since the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people have been searching for outdoor restaurants as a safe haven in which to socialize with friends and family. In this vein, many of our favorite al fresco restaurants in the city have added measures in place to make sure guests are not only comfortable and safe but can also still have a good time. This top Belize City picks at the Best Western Plus Belize Biltmore Plaza offers just this.

The Set-Up

Nestled within the Best Western Plus Belize Biltmore Plaza, The Biltmore Bistro is an idyllic escape from the chaos of the city. Dine in the glorious garden setting under parasol-shaded tables or on the lovely covered patio. For those looking for a more casual setting, a dining and drinking poolside is also available.

As a Gold Standard Hotel, the restaurant has also ensured all safety standards are in place. Tables are spaced widely apart and temperatures are all checked before dining. The friendly team is also fully versed in all the standards and protocols in place and can give you more information on this.

Eat This


The Bistro offers an extensive international menu with Belizean twists. Chef Denfield’s Catch of the Day is a particular favorite of fish lovers and the salads are colorful and nourishing options for those looking for lighter options. Finally, the restaurant keeps things exciting with ever-revolving specials. They share these specials, like the ‘pasta palooza’, on their Facebook regularly so keep a lookout.
