The chillest hangout in Placencia, this palapa roofed pub is owned by a gregarious former New Jersey resident who knows what the ex-pat community (and visitors) want.  He serves up quality bar food—pizzas, burgers, subs, and burritos—and some more elevated fare at night (mango-rum glazed chicken, lobster curry and the like), and lets his friendly dogs roam the resto, to the delight of all.  One of the best deals in town is the daily BZ$10 lunch special. This open-air sand-floored joint can get rowdy, especially after folks have downed a few rounds of Parrot Piss, the bar’s signature mixed drink. Note: Thursdays are trivia night.
