“yum yum finger lickin good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Getting off the dive boat smelling Brenda's cooking was like a shark smelling blood 2 miles away...Yummy smelling food. Had a wonderful 2 meals as I chose that as my last meal in Placencia. She was very energetic and positive. Her food was really mouth watering as I had both the chicken and fish. Very accommodating and will visit when I go back.... See ya Brenda....love ya you sweet women...

“Jerk Chicken and Gumbo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Ms. Brenda will befriend you, cook special for you, remember you and what you wore every day, kick your but at this ring on a string game they have at Yolli's Bar, and treat you like family.

“Best grilled food in Placencia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

You would never believe it, but at the end of the road (there's only one) right on the water, there's a little stand with a smoking grill next to it. This is Brenda's. She is every person's ideal mom. When you order a plate from her (everything is to go), it is heaping with delicious barbecue and side dishes. She adds her awesome coconut macaroons or whatever she made that day to the plate. She over delivers on taste, quantity, and love. Don't miss it.
