We visited Tipsy every day on our recent trip, some days more than once. It was 50 yards from our hotel. The first day, we had excellent service. Kaing and Kelvin both took time to get to know us a bit, asked and remembered our names, made recommendations on the food, etc. The live music was entertaining, and at a... More

The view cannot be beaten. This colorful spot on the beach is totally inviting! I ordered boneless chicken wings which seemed to be strips of chicken breast instead, entirely overcooked (think crunchy, chewy chicken jerky) but still tasty due to the honey BBQ sauce. I'll be back, but won't order the wings.

I had a great time at Tipsy Tuna and the bartender Jordanny was the best. He took good care of the guests and made the best watermelon splash. Best bar in placencia and best bartender

The Tipsy Tuna was a great place to have a cool, frozen drink. There was always great music, and being on the beach, it had great views and fantastic breezes. We went here several times because we enjoyed it so much.

Vacationing with old friends, we went there twice for food, drinks and the beach. Very satisfied. No one is in a hurry, so the service may seem slow, but it was friendly and accurate.

We stopped into Tipsy Tuna for a happy hour drink. The drink menu alone is an entire page, front and back. We enjoyed some fruity drinks while watching the waves crash upon the shore. The service is a bit slow, but I can see why this spot is so popular for a night out.

The Tipsy Tuna is a good place to grab a beer or a drink and watch the waves or the people on the beach. On a Friday or Saturday night is can get raucous and a bit loud. The food is good but not fine dining. It is more of a burger and fries type place.

My boyfriend and I walked to the restaurant from our condo on the beach. This is our second time visiting the spot. It was a Wednesday, so they had wings for $1 bzd. "Wings Wednesday" I'm not a fan of bone-in chicken, and boneless chicken wings are $1 bzd too! I was expecting chicken bites like in the US, but... More

I went to Placencia Village to go to Lobster Festival and a midday pouring rain chased everyone inside. My friends and I decided to eat here. It was a great decision. They had lobster on special, $26 Belize ($13 US) and a big plate of fish for $23 Belize ($12 US). The fish I had was excellent, it came with... More

Nice 'Beach' vibe. Large Mexican food menu selection. Service wasn't too slow. Good bar and drink menu. Right on the beach and just off the Sidewalk.
