Food was very good and the prices just a bit high. The staff were very friendly and quick. Food was tasty and ambiance was also good. If it town, give it a try.

We had my daughters rehearsal dinner last week. We had 16 people and everyone loved it. The stacked cevechi is the best i' ever had. Make sure you leave room for dessert. If you't, Sabrina will set you up with her lush chocolate cake to take home.
Everyone is very friendly, and you can tell they really want to please (which they do). We enjoyed our dinner so much, we had to go back 2 nights later to try more of the menu. This time we both had the steak, which I would normally not order in Belize, it was great ! Cooked perfectly med rare with a chimicurri sauce. We will return when ever we are in Placentia.

After four days of being doused in rain, The Secret Garden provided a welcome escape from our resort and an exquisite meal, magically prepared in the remote town of Placencia. Our hostess recommended spot on selections. You must try anything with chimichurri sauce. We also loved the ceviche preparation. The environment is a little scrappy when you're not able to dine in the garden, but that's kind of the point. Low-key, friendly, great food.

We had read about the Secret Garden and happened to stumble upon it trying to get out of a torrential downpour! We ate inside due to adverse weather but the setting outside was lovely as well. Food was excellent and of a very high standard. Staff were friendly and helpful as were the owners. Wish we had more restaurants like this in Edinburgh! No hesitation in recommending this restaurant to anyone staying in the area. They also kindly organised a taxi back to our hotel at the end of the evening.

Was here for dinner and had a good experience. It appears the owners place a lot of emphasis on server knowledge of the food, which is great. The chicken lollipops were unique and the accompanying sauces very well prepared. BF had jambalaya which had a very tasty, red spicy rice. I had the gumbo. It was very good, but the chicken and shrimp could have used a little more seasoning and care prior to cooking in the gumbo...they were a little bland. Presentation was the most careful we've seen in Belize and the staff was great.
