After a long day on the water snorkeling, we stumbled in to the Flying Pig for a quick bite and cocktails. It happened to be open mic night so in addition to great food and drink, the entertainment was fun!

Awesome pub food in outdoor atmosphere. We went on a Tuesday evening and it happened to be an open mic night, or jam session. Locals and expats playing variety of music added to the evening. Lots of fun, and Patrick took very good care of us.

Paid $18 for pulled Pork on a roll with microwaved jar BBQ sauce. I was not impressed with the high prices and lower quality food value. Foreigners won't bat an eye at those prices, but Belizeans will. The total of $23- 18 for food and 5 for a Beer(normal price), would buy two bigger meals with sides from a street... More

We watched this place going up while we were on our first visit to Placencia and wanted to try it out when we got back again. We heard the ribs were really good so we headed up. But they didn't have any ribs left the night we went so I had wings. Not as good as I had hoped but... More

A bit out of the village but definitely worth getting a taxi especially if they have live music which is normally on a Tuesday. The food is good and the drinks are very generous. Great atmosphere, yes worth the taxi ride a popular restaurant and bar.

My wife and I are thinking of buying property near the Flying Pig so we went there to check it out. It's important to us to have a great place to eat and socialize nearby. TFP didn't disappoint. The Panko encrusted lion fish was delicious and the live music was entertaining without being too loud. We didn't buy any property... More

We went back on a number of occasions and were always greeted with a smile and a positive attitude. Food was always... More

Great first visit on a Thursday night in slow season. Joined the darts action, drank a cocktail, had a plate of delish icy cold salad and spaghetti and meatballs (all you could eat but I only managed one salad and one pasta). Free shots for the entire bar when anyone spotted a cheerleader on the TV football game. When we... More
