Went here while shopping in Placencia for lunch. It is a cute little bar close to the beach. We all had the fish and chips which was the special for the day made out if lion fish which apparently is destroying the surrounding reefs and thus a popular dish in Placencia. Fish was cooked to perfection and the "chips" were... More

My husband and I popped into this bar to chill and have a couple of beers. We didn't eat but the food coming out to other diners looked appetising. The owner was friendly and the bar staff exceptional. The only thing that I didn't like were the dogs in the bar going up and scrounging whilst people were eating! However... More

We tried to eat here twice, and both times they had run out of the specials. They also told us that shrimp was too hard to get.

Sadly never made it back here to eat, but it is a great cool spot to belly up to the bar for nice conversation and a drink. Super friendly folks here!

The server and owner are really friendly, every night there is a dinner special at $10. You must go and try the hamburger and Friday night fish and chips.

We love making regular visits here when we are in Placencia. Owners and staff are very friendly and enjoying visiting with Ziggy, their lovely dog! Prices are great and love the daily lunch specials.

We stopped by after dinner and stayed much longer than we expected. Enjoyed talking to the many locals and learning of their journey to move to Belize. Great staff. Tommy was a very attentive bar tender. You must try the Parrott Piss. Have you found our cell phone yet? LOL

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...
