The food was great. A different dinning experience along main street, something we look forward to in Placencia.

This is the best little restaurant in Placencia. It is easy to miss because there is just a small sign in front of the owners home. At night. The yard is lit by lights in the trees and two small tables are pulled out to serve dinner. I had jerk fish and it was incredible. The jerk sauce is made... More

They were having a off night. Their ribs needed extra time, then their rice was out and addtional time was needed for that. But they were super nice and it was very relaxing just hanging out in the hammocks with some supermarket purchased beers.

Incredible tastes, this simple bbq set up had us coming back again and again. The ribs were out of this world and the fried cookie dough had... More

Lovely couple running a great restaurant! We had bbq chicken and home made baked beans and went 2 days in a row! The prices are so reasonable and the food is great! It is like dining at a friends house, very comfortable. They make and awesome rum punch and the fried cookie dough dessert is amazing!

A just-off-the sidewalk, and yes, in his yard ... this "restaurant" boasts the finest BBQ chicken on the peninsula! Get there early if you want grilled shrimp or snapper!

We were told the ribs just ran out and a new batch of chicken was getting put on the smoker. To wait and it would be another 30 minutes. We grabbed a hammock and enjoyed the wait. We grabbed some beers at the store and returned. We enjoyed the hammock. We waited over two hours for that chicken and shrimp... More

We had just arrived in the afternoon and spent a few hours just walking around and exploring. We were a bit overwhelmed and couldn't really decide on place to eat dinner. But we happened to be on the sidewalk when our hunger became too much. And right there happened to be a guy with a grill and a few tables... More
