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. .

One of my fave bars in Placencia. The owner Patrick and his excellent bartender Sheldon always guarantee a great time. Tuesday nights are a live jam and a fun experience!! Boy can the cook sing!!!!

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.

A bit out of the village but definitely worth getting a taxi especially if they have live music which is normally on a Tuesday. The food is good and the drinks are very generous. Great atmosphere, yes worth the taxi ride a popular restaurant and bar.
