Why Foodies Love the 4 Bs: Belize Biltmore Bistro Buffets

by Larry Waight

Are you brave enough to admit that one of the most amazing aspects of going on vacation is having your fill of international cuisine? Enjoying sumptuous food that not only delights your taste buds but gives you an opportunity to fully explore the culture of the place you’re visiting? Don’t be afraid to! After all, you’ve earned it. And if you’ve built a modest reputation as a foodie in your circle, you’ll definitely want to make a beeline for the Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel, where cuisine is elevated to an art.

The Biltmore is more than just an epicenter of delectable dining, though. It’s a haven for the weary; an elegant palace of hospitality where the accommodations are swank, the atmosphere is decidedly old-world luxury, and all-inclusive packages cover every aspect of a customized vacation experience.

Go Where the Action Is

Half the fun of finding a food haven is staying on the property, and The Belize Biltmore Plaza has much to offer guests. Whether you’re coming for business or pleasure, the resort’s proximity to both the municipal and international airports grants access to everything Belize has to offer—-from beaches and rain forests to endless aquatic recreational opportunities, plus some of Central America’s most impressive Maya sites.

You don’t have to leave the grounds to enjoy plenty of amenities. The swimming pool and fitness center will keep you fit and refreshed throughout your stay. So, eat up during your sojourn, knowing that both will balance out any calories you consume at Biltmore’s Bistro Restaurant. Here, the stars are enticing weekly buffets.

More Than a Scandinavian Tradition

For enthusiastic eaters, The Biltmore Bistro offers one more “B” in its crown of delights: The world’s best buffets. If your food education includes knowing all about buffets, you probably know that the concept originated in Sweden. It later made an appearance at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Over time, however, this all-you-can-eat affair was adopted by savvy folks in the hospitality industry. In Belize, you’ll find the best spread of all at the Biltmore Bistro.

Breakfast eaters show up as early as 6:30 a.m. for tasty hot and cold dishes that represent a wide variety of culinary heritages. The menu is so diverse, guests can stick around for a week and enjoy a completely different fare each day. If your vacation mantra happens to be “Sleep as late as I can,” no worries. This festival of breakfast foods is served until 10 a.m. Those who aren’t fans of buffets rely on the tasty à la carte menu for their favorite day starter.

Not a Fan of Breakfasts?

You don’t have to be. After all, vacations don’t require you to follow the same time schedule and rituals as you do back home, so if you show up at the Biltmore Bistro between 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., lunch fare will prove to be even more extravagant. The Belize Biltmore Plaza’s weekday buffets are internationally inspired and change every day. Here is a taste of the buffet lunch themes, served every day except Saturday:

Monday – Caribbean
Tuesday – International
Wednesday – Italian
Thursday – Mexican
Friday – Belizean

As the day wears on and dinnertime approaches, dinners at the Biltmore Bistro start with an impressive wine list, followed by an extensive à la carte menu and nightly 3-course specials. Of course, seeing is believing and if this short YouTube video doesn’t whet your appetite for a lengthy stay at the Belize Biltmore Plaza, where buffets are the talk of the town, you’ll want to give your tummy the bad news early enough to avoid disappointment!

Finally, if you’re the sort who likes to eat dessert first, indulge your sweet tooth by sampling the Bistro’s array of homemade treats. They include chocolate cake, cheesecake, Belizean bread pudding, key lime pie, ice cream, and a dessert of the day. If you’re thinking that these desserts would make an ideal stand-alone buffet, maybe you should mention that to management. Who knows—perhaps they’ll say yes?
