Went to the pickled parrot with my family and had a nice time. Had lunch and drinks. The philly cheese steak sandwich is really good, although it's not exactly what you would get in Philly. It had different meat, chunks. And you can't get cheese wiz in Belize. That being said it was very good. The owner, an expat from... More

My husband and I enjoyed talking with the owners Gene and his wife. The bartenders served great drinks and welcomed us with name introductions. We only ate bar food but the menu did have many other options. Be sure to throw a stick for both their dogs( one even is three legged). The atmosphere is beautifully done. They obviously have...

Apart from being a fun bar we love when they do game nights and competitions. Lynn and Eugene are retired New Jersians and have made their retirement fun for everyone. Great light foods, too.

The Pickled Parrot sits between the main street and the Placencia sidewalk near the pier end of town. It is fairly secluded which makes a hot day seem cooler. The open air bar area is all wood and the fans keep it nice and breezy for cooling. The bartender was very friendly and quick to serve me. I did not... More

My husband and I stopped in for a beer. We did not eat here but we saw the food coming out of the kitchen and it looked delicious. Mostly locals were in here which says a lot about the place. The owners are from New Jersey and we enjoyed talking with them.

We loved this friendly lunch spot with easy access to the shops and beaches of placencia. The owner and bartender were fast and congenial, and the food was fresh and good. Our teens were very happy with the burgers and fries. It was astonishingly cool under the thatched roof on a hot day.

We loved the thatched roof and friendly dogs. Our waiter was helpful and attentive We were there on Memorial Day and the special was hamburger baked beans and Mac n Cheese. Only $5 US dollars Everyday has a $5 US dollar special. Nothing traditional to Belize but excellent comfort food from home.

Thank Kareena M
