Great food...smoothies to die for!

Great and reasonable prices. Try the smoothies, they are fresh and delicious. The food is reasonably priced, but I can't say the best in town. Great place to go after a swim near the pier.

The gentleman working was polite and turned a fan on for us I can't really knock the service. My husbands smoothie was ok. They were out of the ingredients for my first choice and my second choice arrived with ground up peach pit?? in the mix.

Go for the huevos rancheros and smoothies. Go to the beach a few steps away. Then go back for the best jerk fish tacos you've ever had. My favorite place, hand's down, in Placencia.

We eat there for 4 times and we really like the food, but the people that work there are really not friendly and it looks like that they don't want you there. In my opinion it's important that you give your customers the feeling that they are welcome and you are happy that the choose you, so smile and look... More

My friend and I had a tropical fruit smoothie after a morning on the beach. The BEST smoothie ever. Nice setting near the pier. $3.50 was the cost. Wish I had the Shak here in Virginia.

I will go back again to see if The Shak is better than my first experience there. I had a smoothie and it was average at best. The food others had looked okay but nothing special. The service was okay. The setting was okay. There are just so many places in town that I really like. The Shak didn't jump... More

The falafel wrap was really good! They have a reasonable selection of vegetarian options. The bananna shake was perfect on a hot sunny afternoon. Plus the view and breeze is great.

We stopped here for smoothies (so many choices) - we had a mango smoothie and a seaweed smoothie both of which were delicious. Later that day we went for lunch. The setting can't be beat - right on the beach next to the pier. The fish tacos were excellent and the lamb burger was so flavourful and juicy. Mmmm -... More
