Having tried fried grouper in over six countries in this region, The Secret Garden has the best, and I mean by far, THE BEST grouper that I have ever had. It was a charming atmosphere and a great choice at under $50 US for two.

We had dinner here the last night of our weeklong trip, it was outstanding. Creole lobster, gumbo and apps were so good and friendly service.

There is a charming outdoor courtyard where we ate. The menu offers many selections and I must say the appetizer, main course and dessert were wonderful! It is a must for those visiting Placencia.

We celebrated a birthday at The Secret Garden in May. 14 of us. Sabrina took great care of us. She is the proprietor and runs the place with military-like efficiency.

The Roasted Garlic appetizer is not to be missed. The Caesar Salad was also very nice. Great dressing, kind of surprised me.

My wife and I had fish, both were fresh and well prepared. By request, mine had quite a bit of heat. Veeeery nice.

In the middle of our meal it began to rain on us. Without missing a beat, Sabrina had tables inside set and our food and drinks were rescued from the precipitation.


Overall, I would highly recommend The Secret Garden. Oh yeah, and the drinks were delicious too...
