My wife and I happened upon Cal's BBQ while wandering down Placencia sidewalk, looking for fried plantains. The "you bring it, I grill it" got her attention. We stopped and chatted with him for a few minutes. He did not have plantains at the time, but said he would pick some up for us. He typically fires up the grill for dinner. We went back that evening. To her disappointment, he could not find sweet plantains. Nonetheless, he fried them for us and gave us his home made "plantain sauce." It was fantastic! We also ordered dinner. The grilled shrimp and BBQ pork was very flavorful and well cooked. The sides, spicy mashed potatoes and pasta salad, were great as well. Cal is a great host and cook. Fun to talk to for sure.
He also rents kayaks. You can catch your own fish and he will prepare it. Can't beat that!
Definitely a place we will visit next time we are in Placencia. We were impressed.
