“I feel bad...”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Miss B was incredibly kind- I feel bad to say, I was not impressed by her food at all.
The jerked chicken was incredibly over the top dry and the lobster fritters- mine didn't have a single piece of lobster in it lol! It was all bread.
The spot was nice and the company great- but to be real, the food price just kept changing, go for the company, but- not for the food.

“Our favorite place and person”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Ms. Brenda is kind sweet woman who works hard to provide excellent and authentic creole cuisine. The jerk chicken and lobster fritters were so tasty! All of this in a simple wooden hut over charcoal grill. Recommend you try her hand made macaroons as well.

“My husband's favorite”
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!”
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”
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.
