We have been to Placencia 5 times and always spent time at the Pickeled Parrot. This year, with a new family running the place, it was one of our favorite places to hang out, have a great drink and lot's of laughs! Tommy's drink specials were always yummy! It's a great place to relax chat with Eugene and Lynn and play with their great dog too! Thanks again and see you all next year!!!!

two hamburgers were okay, but the chicken wings were horrible - had extra "parts" on them so my son wouldn't eat them, the sauce was bbq rather than spicy, and even though he wouldn't eat them, they charged us for them. Just go for drinks and to toss the dog toys to Ziggy...

This bar opened under new management while we were there. The new owners are a couple from New Jersey and they are absolutely delightful. They live on the property and prepare homestyle meals offered on the menu...try the meatloaf...YUM. Great onion rings too. We mostly stuck to beers, so I can't speak to the mixed drinks, but they did hire an outstanding local bartender with lots of experience. He's extremely personable. The three of them together will make this place great! Very chill atmosphere. They are also contributors to the community - which is awesome.

Just got back from Placencia, Belize, for our second time. Last year the Pickled Parrot was just ok but now with the new owners, Eugene and Lynn....it is the bomb!! Their son Tommy and his partner-in-crime Kareem are behind the bar, mixing drinks and keeping everybody happy with their down-to-earth hospitality!! There was not a night that we did not stop in for 1, 2 or 8. The drinks were always cold, stiff and tasty!! I strongly recommend visiting them the next time you're in Placencia!!

p.s. Lynn also makes some great home-style cooking!!

We set out to explore belize for our honeymoon and ended up planting ourselves in placencia mainly because of out comfortable place to stay and because of the pickled parrot. The owners are awesome making you feel like you've lived there forever with great homecooking made with love and because of the friendly conversation provided by all those working behind the bar. They make you feel like family rather than just a patron. You have to grab a bite and have beers if you visit placencia. Tucked just of the main street but next to a grammer school you feel a part of the community and get to hang with locals and discuss the latest blown out flip flop. We are going back, and next time we may not return home. Save me a seat at the corner guys, Ill bring more shirts.
