This restaurant was truly a treasure! Amazing amazing fresh food (our favorites were the seafood gumbo and grilled lobster) and peaceful good energy surrounding you. We liked everything we tried. The owner, Sabrina, works alongside her local employees and in her "off time" is helping the humane society of Placencia. We had many choices of where to dine and came here 3 times in 9 days. Don't miss it!

“Fantastic food!”
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”
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”
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.

“Great Place to Eat”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

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