I have to admit that we ate here every single day the restaurant was open (closed Wednesdays) during our visit to Belize. The food was excellent, priced very well, and service was laid back but good. I ate my fair share of fried jacks, drank great coffee with amazing cream, and shared some priceless moments with my family here. Can't... More

We had breakfast here on our recent trip to Placencia. Very generous breakfast and good service! I recommend the stuffed fry jack, although I'm not a huge fan of the cheese they use. Spice it up with some Marie Sharps hot sauce and it's yummy! Love the fresh squeezed orange juice we had here, and we were warned, that unlike... More

My husband and I visited here after I read recommendations on a Belize travel blog. Unfortunately the experience left much to be desired. Our waitress lacked any real friendliness, which stood out compared to the normally very friendly people of Placencia. She also brought our salads and side dishes after our main course which we found odd. We ordered both... More

We went here on the recommendation of our dive instructor. The restaurant is situated on a pristine beach near downtown Placencia. The menu had a nice variety of fish and non-fish sandwiches and tacos. They also offered a wide selection of tropical drinks in addition to beer. Everything was delicious! The simple items on the menu were prepared to the... More

Ate here for dinner twice and breakfast once and all were fantastic! We were staying at the Seaspray hotel right next door and this restuarant was so convenient and delicious. Their shrimp stirfry was one of my best meals in Belize

The staff is friendly and the food is very good, but don't be in a hurry. Just be ready to ready to relax and enjoy the beach and ocean right beside you.

De Tatch has great lunch time food as well as breakfast. I honestly didn't try them for dinner, though their menu choices looked excellent. The nachos were good and the beer was cold and the location and views were fabulous. They have a pretty extensive menu and the prices weren't bad at all. Recommend!

The food here was so good. Fantastic fish! Would go back in a heartbeat. The views of the beach and the palm trees are a bonus :) Not too expensive either.
