We stopped in on the recommendation of someone we met in San Ignacio and while the food and drinks were good it was talking to the owner for a little while that really stood out. He was able to tell us a lot of info on Placencia that only a local would know and was even able to make a... More

We came on a Tuesday night with a group of 9. We offered to sit at different tables. The bartender was good, but everything else was horrific. This place should be demolished. It took over an hour to order. Then we were told that they only had 7 meals left: 2 sausage sandwiches, 2 french dips, a hamburger, 2 orders... More

First of all, I do not drink here at my bar. I never have. As for the food that night, I apologize. It was a difficult night. One of our cooks called in sick last minute, and food delivery to the village that week was held up due to the different Holiday at the time. Therefore we were limited to... More

We stayed in Placencia for vacation. The flying pig was a short golf cart ride away from our house. The owner is originally from California. When we arrived, the owner and staff welcomed us like family. The bar is decorated with Jerseys from all kinds of sports teams. They have food, booze and Karaoke. This place ended up being our...

This is an open air bar in Placencia with a great host and great service and very tasty bar food. The five of us had great dinners and really enjoyed the open air atmosphere. Patrick, the owner always comes by and visits with his guests and makes everyone feel at home. I love the smoked chicken dinner served with garlic... More

Patrick has put together a unique menu of classic comfort favorites with a twist making it one of the best bars in Placencia. From all you can eat spaghetti and a movie night to the infamous $20 pitcher of rum&coke you really just cannot go wrong with anything from The Flying Pig. I suggest the wings very strongly as I...

Great friendly neighbor bar and grill. Completely open air bar and restaurant. We both ordered the chicken wings. They were very good and filling, however they were battered before deep fried, which is not my favorite way of making them. The hot sauce and bar-be-que sauce that accompanied them were also very good. They also have a dart tournament and... More

We stumbled across the Flying Pig the night we arrived in Placencia. It is the perfect open air hangout, with good food and friendly service. All the food was great and the kids loved the swings. We liked it so much we went back the next night too.

Stopped at the Flying Pig for an early dinner. It is really a sports bar, but we found the food to be very good. Service was excellent. They have 2 large screen TVs going with sports. I am sure this is a great place later at night for drinking. It is always busy
