“My husband's favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

YOu can't get much more local than Brenda's! Or much closer to the water. If you want to try true local flavor and meet some locals this is your place. Brenda's is very affordable and if you leave hungry then its your fault. Also her homeade coconut macaroons are awesome!!

“Brenda's is the BOMB!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The jerk chicken is the best I've had! The gumbo was filled with lobster, sausage, shrimp and more. I love her personality and stories. I will come back to Placencia just to see Ms. Brenda! The ambiance is the sitting by the seaside talking with the natives!

“A Must Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Brenda's is a must visit when in Placencia. She is the heart an soul of the town and she makes some great home cooked food. She made us a special lunch of her gumbo, jerk chicken, rice, salad and the best macaroons you will eat. It was neat to eat by the water and talk with the locals.

“Good food down at the pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Brenda is the sweetest lady and has some good food right down at the pier. Great for when you come in from a snorkel tour. We had her shrimp gumbo and it was very unusual but very good. She also makes a mean macaroon.

“Brenda's for lunch is a must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

We had a great meal of stewed chicken and beans and rice from a funky little shack right at the town pier. Brenda and her helper we fun to talk to, and they cut open coconuts for us to have the flesh and water. It just was a great, local experience with very good local food.
