Fun place!

Patrick, the owner, has that special friendly entertaining personality it takes and has built and decorated his place wonderfully! Just north of airport short ways wee all enjoyed good drinks and saw some good looking food being served!

Saw good reviews about the flying pig, so had it on our list of must tries. However, when we arrived it seemed clear that we were not welcome. We fit the demographics of the rest of the customers and staff (white), but we weren't a regular local. Probably a great place to be if you are a regular local, service... More

First of all let me extend an apology to you. The past week has been a challenge much like anything else in a foreign country. With the loss of my cook earlier this week, I have not run the kitchen for food. As for the lack of service, that stumps me. You can ask anyone local, or tourist who has... More

We stopped in the Flying Pig for the first time on a Tuesday because I had read somewhere that they had live local entertainment. It turned out to be one of the best evenings we had!! Meeting Patrick, the owner, was definitely a highlight. The guy has an awesome sense of humor and is so personable!! A lot of the... More

Wish we would have found The Flying Pig and Patrick on our first day instead of our last!! We had driven by a couple times on our way to and from Placencia Village and on a whim we stopped in. It was mid afternoon and pretty quiet so we got the opportunity to visit with Patrick who's very welcoming and... More

Patrick has a great little bar/restaurant in Placencia. I've stopped there a few times while bike riding. The Flying Pig has a welcoming ambience, tasty drinks at low prices and standard bar menu. It's a fun place to watch NFL football and just soak in the local atmosphere. Patrick has a good knowledge of events on the Peninsula, and he'll... More

This bar is mid way between where the expats and tourists live, just north of the airstrip, so a great spot to meet both while enjoying jam sessions with local entertainment and some tourists who like to join in too! Fun place with cold beer, good pizza and other offering we love in bars. Cab from town is $5 and... More

Spotted this place out past the airport. Stopped in and had a great lunch. It feels like a little like a sports bar but it's fun and the owner will work to make you happy.

Apparently the name came when the owner, Patrick, told his Mom he planned to own a restaurant in the caribbean some day. She laughed and said "when pigs fly!" Glad Mom was wrong! We had lots of fun at Pluckology a regular tuesday night jam session! Food was great and drinks were cold! Perfect

This is an excellent place for evening entertainment. If you are looking for a reasonable price and good food it is a must. Whether it is lunch or dinner their portions are really large so be prepared you will not leave hungry. Their menu has good variety, and every time we ate their it was great. The staff and owner...
