I went on a Sunday morning and could only order from the brunch menu. I selected a cuban sandwich and it was mediocre. The service was OK. Had to ask for my check twice. Do not think I will return.

Vegetarian and vegan style dining are almost non-existant in far away places if not difficult to locate. We happened upon this restaurant in mid-town Placencia seeking a new lunch experience and boy did we hit it right for a change. The menu offerings included many...More

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...
