When you walk in the owner Patrick greats you as if you are a friend and is a real character. the place seems to have a great vibe. The drinks are at a great price and the food is excellent with generous servings. They have different things happening every night and the place is very popular with locals and visitors... More

I didn't know what to expect, but let me say, this was one of the most fun venues I've ever been to for a Super Bowl. The food, entertainment and ambiance was far more than I expected. I will definitely go back next time I'm in Belize.

The food and drinks were good, the outdoor "tiki like" seating was fun. It was a pleasant experience but the food took a bit long to come out.

Awesome music, inexpensive food and drink. They did run out of the rib dinner special, but that is to be expected in the Placencia area. Service was fantastic. .

After a long day on the water snorkeling, we stumbled in to the Flying Pig for a quick bite and cocktails. It happened to be open mic night so in addition to great food and drink, the entertainment was fun!

Awesome pub food in outdoor atmosphere. We went on a Tuesday evening and it happened to be an open mic night, or jam session. Locals and expats playing variety of music added to the evening. Lots of fun, and Patrick took very good care of us.

Paid $18 for pulled Pork on a roll with microwaved jar BBQ sauce. I was not impressed with the high prices and lower quality food value. Foreigners won't bat an eye at those prices, but Belizeans will. The total of $23- 18 for food and 5 for a Beer(normal price), would buy two bigger meals with sides from a street... More

We watched this place going up while we were on our first visit to Placencia and wanted to try it out when we got back again. We heard the ribs were really good so we headed up. But they didn't have any ribs left the night we went so I had wings. Not as good as I had hoped but... More
