“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I spent a wonderful month in Placencia this year and spent many, many, many times at the Pickled Parrot. My local Pub. The owners are fantastic, as is the food, with daily specials and you can't beat the prices. There was entertainment some evenings, a movie and football games (yuck). The best place to meet new people and locals, including the best bartender ever. I miss them all very much and hope to see everyone next year.Please drop by for a beer on the way to the beach and tell Eugene, Jody sent you.

“a little piece of Philly in Paradise”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Stopped in the PP last week at the end of our catamaran cruise in Belize (Placencia) and the owner Eugene was the perfect host as was his bartender who made us fantastic Margaritas...didn't eat there since we had reservations with our group later that evening but the food that was going by me looked great (Philly Cheese Steak) and everyone seemed to be enjoying their meal!!!

“Our favorite bar in Placencia!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Pickled Parrot is just off the main road and truly feels like a bar for locals. The owner Eugene is such a nice guy who made us feel welcome from the minute we walked in, the bartender was great as well. We liked it so much we came back a couple times throughout our short stay. Didn't get a chance to try the food but it looked delicious. Skip Barefoot Bar and head straight to the Pickled Parrot!

“Nice palce to gather for a beer and lunch”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The owners are there to greet you and make sure you are having a good time. The food is healthy fare at very reasonable prices, missus rules the kitchen. You won't be disappointed in the lunch specials which are the best deal in town. My bet is you'll be back again and again.

“A great little place to eat!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We aren't drinkers, so we went to the Pickled Parrot for lunch twice. Both times we were greeted by the friendly owners and were served good food at very reasonable prices. The only thing I would say is if you have your heart set on getting what is on their "Today's Special" sign, check with the owner to be sure it is still available. We walked back to get the special two different days only to find it had changed and the sign had not. The food we got was great, but if you are getting excited about a certain thing and then you are told it isn't available you can't help but feeling let down.
We wish the owners success and hope to see them again next year about this time!
