Leela's Bistro

Creole in Punta Gorda

This cozy little Creole restaurant and bar is a legacy of legendary PG brukdown (19th-century Creole music) singer Leela Vernon, who died in 2017. The menu is traditional Belizean with the likes of rice and beans, stew chicken, Creole lobster and breadfruit. Occasional live music on weekends. Don't forget to pop into the tiny adjoining Kriol museum dedicated to Leela Vernon.
