Parrot Piss drink is better than it sounds. Three types of rum and squeeze the poss out of a parrot. Onion rings are to die for. Real cheeseburger in paradise. Best rum punch ever, I mean ever.

This bar and grill was situated in the middle of Placencia town's Main Street (sidewalk) and the only paved road (which runs parallel to Main Street. A great place to grab a Belikin (stout for me, please!) or a delicious pina colada. The owner sat with us and chatted for about 30 minutes and is quite a character. Good times!

Such a friendly atmosphere. Eugene and Lynn (the owners) make everyone feel welcome and personally introduce themselves and welcome you to their establishment. Tommy and Kareem do an outstanding job behind the bar and are always on top of things...both add a little personality to the experience which makes it that much more fun. I found that some of the...

Going here weekly for the lunch specials I've come to know Lynn, Eugene and staff very well. One thing I can say is that they are always consistent. The food is always good, the service top notch, the drinks great and it's all very affordable $$. You'll often find locals, expats and tourist here in good lively conversation. Whether you're...

My boyfriend and I stopped in on our last night in Belize, and we wish we'd come in sooner. Tommy at the bar was extremely friendly and welcoming, as was the owner. We'll definitely be back.

Much better places To eat In Placencia. Salad was Pretty Bad. Kids had chicken nuggets and grilled cheese which was ok. Staff makes the place as the owner was very personable. Probably better to drink at as a bar. Funny dogs running around including tripod. Love the staff food horribly average.

My husband and I had the pleasure of eating here on June 11/14; we were warmly welcomed by the owners, their son and dogs. The food was amazing, tasty and reasonably priced. My husband had breaded chicken wings which he said were among the best he has eaten. Every customer who entered while we were here was greeted with a... More

We bought two $10 meals and I ordered one Mojito. Mojito cost more than the meal, at $15. Otherwise, the chicken parmesan was better than you might expect.

They have daily lunch/dinner specials (one per day) that is a bargain and usually delish. We had lion fish here a couple of times and loved the taste as well as knowing we were doing our part to clean up the reefs of this nasty fish. The owner and his son are from New Jersey in the states and had... More
