We are here several times and was never disappointed!! For lunch one day they had fry Jack's stuffed with jerk chicken. Awesome dish!! Just beware...The jerk is super spicy!! Just make sure you have lots of beer or rum on hand. Lol. Highly recommend!

Right at the end of the road by the pier. Enjoy the drinks and cheap beer. The food is okay but not super. Restrooms are so-so and you need a key.... Or pay a buck to use....

Delicious smoothies and tasty stuffed fry jack. This was our last meal in Placencia before flying home and it was enjoyable and filling for great value.

Great little place at the pier. Stopped at first for a smoothie - huge selection - delicious! Went back another time for drinks and light lunch - also excellent. Great chicken nachos. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices.
