Description: Fun and funky in the daytime, with fresh, light lunch options and a family vibe, in the evening gourmets can indulge their individual tastes with Executive Chef Rick Labonte's World menu based on local and organic ingredients and savours, often with a trademark twist. Our attentive staff will make your romantic, celebration or large group dining pleasure their priority, from presentation through to great service. Right in the centre of downtown Placencia, over from the ball-field, our airy and open-plan dining room and smaller terraces are perfect for people-watching or that intimate dinner-for-two...while the superbly-stocked bar will fix everything from beers through fine wines to exotic or Caribbean cocktails...

Kids and I had the burgers. Very tasty. Sat out a very nasty storm in the restaurant. Great ambience

“Great resturant and great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

I read that this place closed down on 1/6/14 hope it is not true, we ate here twice, great food and drink and the nicest staff.

One of the waitresses even gave us a lift home instead of calling a taxi as she was going our way.

Loved the tee shorts and will always remember the Purple Monkey!

“This great restaurant is closed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We were lucky to dine here again on it's last night, which was Sunday, June 1, 2014. The new owners are not interested in a restaurant - what a shame to see this place go away

“Crazy Name, Awesome pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We loved the pizza and the salads. The drinks were great and the prices were reasonable. We liked it so much that we ate there twice in our four day stay.
