The food is art, both in display and flavor and the ambiance is simple elegance. If they're not busy, ask the owners to tell you about their trip moving to Belize! Everything on the menu is worth trying.

Attentive staff, short weights, wonderful for cocktails and relaxed dining. The food was made fresh at standards of an excellent restaurant in Chicago, but the menu was more exotic.

Occasionally when you travel you run across a restaurant that stands out from all the rest... My last "great meal" experience was over 20 yrs ago, in Grand Caymen at Benjamin's Roof.... The Secret Garden exceeded my expectations in every way... the atmosphere is quaint & unexpected.... the food presentation was amazing & tasted great... Fun cocktails & staff that was eager to meet every need.... Was so impressed, went back another night before departing Belize. Exceptional!!

My husband and I had dinner at Secret Garden and it was definitely an interesting experience. The atmosphere is really cute and very different than the rest of Placencia's restaurants. It's set back and surrounded by plants; no water view at this place. At the time of year we went, flies were really bad. That was the one downfall; they were terrible at this restaurant because there wasn't a breeze to push them away. However, the service was fantastic, and the food was delicious as well. My husband recommends the gumbo!

My husband and I really enjoyed our meal here. The ceviche and black bean soup appetizers were wonderful. Both of our entrees were excellent as well. Great atmosphere and the staff/owner very friendly. Highly recommend this place.
