Sunday Afternoon BBQ at Yoli's, where you'll find the best BBQ Ribs, Chops and Chicken.
"The best views in the village are from your table at Yoli's. Built on a pier jutting out into the Placencia harbor, Yoli's attracts a sizeable crowd at night. It's also a pleasant place to sip a Belikin and enjoy the sea breezes at lunch. Meals are simple, highlighting local seafood, hamburgers, and basic Belizean fare. Food is cooked at Merlene's restaurant nearby and brought out to the pier. The local Rotary Club meets here for lunch on Tuesday." ...Fodor's

"I Loved this place! The owner, Patrick, was attentive and hilarious. He kept the delicious food coming! I was stoked to have a taste-of-home (America)! We all shared the nachos, ribs, and two other plates (can't remember the other two...too much Belikin!), but I remember it was ALL delicious. We all had the chance to leave our "stamp" at TFP wall - very cool! Stop by if you're in the area. You won't regret it!">...tripadvisor
