“Fantastic food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This was our 5th visit to Placencia in the last 2 years and we had heard about The Secret Garden but had so many other favorites we just made it there this last trip. Wow, we have been missing out!!! This will definitely be one of our regular stops now. Food was excellent, great variety and very creative menu. We also met the owner and she was very lovely. =) I liked all the creative personal touches around the restaurant as well. Would highly recommend it! See you in March. =)

“The best food in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I went here for dinner and can honestly say over our two week holiday to Mexico and Belize we had the best food and service than we received anywhere. Tracy the waitress was knowledgeable of the menu and her service and friendliness second to none. This may not be the cheapest place to eat but it is certainly a case of you get what you pay for. The jerk chicken was absolutely amazing.

“Wonderful seafood dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Sabrina runs a yummy restaurant in a beautiful garden setting! The seafood and specialty martinis are a must, and the desserts were a wonderfully homemade and local.

The only thing better than the food and ambiance of this Secret Garden is the owner, she is a gem and a great host.

“Rumfish who?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

we tried several places in town. Secret garden had the best service and food in town. The quality and presentation of the food was outstanding. Rumfish and other restaurants are also ok and worth trying but dont miss out on this restaurant.
