The Pickled Parrot had gotta be the friendliest pub in Placencia!! Eugene and Lynn are great, friendly hosts😎. Kareem, the bartender, is top notch. Always ready with another "ice cold beer"🍻🍻 great spot to meet friends and make more friends! Do not pass this place. Stop in😎🍺

Do not miss Pickled Parrot. They are exactly what you go to a place like Belize hoping to find. When you walk in and sit down you just know you found one of those spots you'll tell your friends about for years to come. Their lunches are really good and CHEAP! Their drinks aren't watered down like some places in... More

Eugene and wife bought the pickled parrot a few years ago, and while they are newer to Belize the pickled parrot has been around a while. I was happy to see the same strong and yummy drinks on the menu. Eugene was so friendly and welcoming to everyone who walked through the door. The live music was great. This was... More

like almost all of the restaurants in Placencia village this beachfront open air restaurant and bar offers authentic Central American atmosphere coupled with some american menu items like the trusty Chicken Wing. The sauces have a unique tasty flavor and are made from scratch and on certain nights the wings really are 50 cents.

This is a wonderful place, the new owner, Eugene, is a great guy, and makes sure that you feel right at home. It's got the feel of the 'neighborhood bar and grill', only with a thatch roof, ha.Love this place to set around and visit, watch horse races or Nascar, or whatever you want on the TV. Drinks are great,... More

Well some things never change. This was our second trip to Placencia . We really look forward to going to the pickled parrot because of several things. Kareen the Bartender is always friendly, always smiling, and always makes great drinks. The owners Eugene and Lynn are too of the nicest and friendliest people you'll ever meet. They have a food...

This is just a fun place to hang out and drink, and you can play jenga too. They have it behind the counter. Eugene is the owner, and he's a real nice guy. Lots of expats hang out there, and theres always friendly people to talk to. They do food too.
