“Great beach bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This is a great beach bar. The drinks are stiff and the food is tasty. Great place to start the night and then move on to their night club to learn the local dance moves.

“Fun beach bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We were in Placencia for a week for our daughter's wedding and the wedding guests spent a good amount of time here. The Tipsy Tuna hosted their wedding rehersal dinner, closed the bar to the public for a couple of hours and served meals and drinks to 50 people then presented the bride and groom with a lovely gift basket. Awesome. Other nights our group made our way down to the bar for a fun time. We particularily enjoyed the Saturday night they were showing the fight on a big outdoor screen. This was also the spot for the guests to gather and have drinks before and after the beach wedding ceremony. Thank you Tipsy for a great week!

“great setting, fair food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Tipsy Tuna is on the beach so it's got that going for it. But, the food is just okay and the service while not at all busy was slow... there are better places to eat in Placencia, this place is good for a few drinks while looking out at the ocean and maybe some apps. It's not bad, but there are better places.

“Fun for drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Lagoon view with delicious drinks. We got there when they were between lunch rush and happy hour rush (mind you...Placencia's rush doesn't ever feel overwhelming if you're from a big US city). It was nice and quiet and the drinks were poured well.

“Best drinks on the Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The happy hours and other drink specials are delicious and drinkable unlike some other places that use cheap rum. The food we mad was tasty and the service was great. Live music on certain nights definitely adds to the appeal. We've already been here twice and are sure to make several more trios in the week to come
