this is a smaller version of the Tipsy Tuna and as a result has a quaint atmosphere with great sea side location...excellent food and huge selection of mixed drinks, some very moderately priced!

Try lobster grilled cheese sandwich. The menu was very extensive--many choices for all tastes. Nice beach bar right on shore with good ocean view.

We visited this bar/restaurant several times while in Placencia. Friendly service, fantastic food, and we enjoyed walking just down the beach from our rental house. My husband enjoyed a few of their drink specials, and prices on drinks and food were very fair.
