The ambiance is amazing - it truly is a secret (hidden) garden. The food is to die for. Sabrina - the owner - is personable and a fabulous chef. You have to try the lollipop chicken and the shoe string potatoes. Our girls loved it!

We ate at several restaurants during our recent visit to Placencia and The Secret Garden is the only one that kept us coming back. The service and the food are simply fantastic! Their grilled lobster is amazing, and don't forget to try their jerk chicken breast. My family absolutely loved their roasted garlic appetizer! Hands down the best!

Very nice garden setting (as expected) and dishes that were presented beautifully. This was accompanied by the best service we have experienced in Placencia. Highly trained, friendly staff that delivered professional service. Food was very good...some of the flavors not quite what expected. I think all food was prepared properly, just tasted a bit different than expected based on menu description. Will certainly visit again.

For my three-week stay in Placencia, based on reviews and local / expat reports, the best dining experience came down to choice between three candidates : Rumfish, Turtle Inn, Secret Garden.

Secret Garden was a quite random experience of unattentive service, innovative yet off dishes and a feeling that the lack of organisation impacted on the experience and the food.

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!
