Ocean front dinning , Caribbean atmosphere and great food selection and service made this our first choice for breakfast. Over our 7 day stay, we ate here three times and loved it.

Very nice local restaurant food was good and prices were very affordable. The lobster fitter pleased the most picky eaters in our group.

This place is exceptional in Placencia: Directly at the beach, but not one of this funny drinking places. Instead it is a very chilled seafood restaurant with a nice breeze from the sea. We had very tasty seafood and cheap but nice long drinks. Staff is friendly and quick.

I would recommend this place for lunch because of the classic beach-y atmosphere. We had snapper, which was delicious. This is reasonably priced for the area.

I went here recently, having eaten there a few years before, and wanted to have another look. It should have been great, thatched roof, on the beach, and away from the noise of traffic, but it has not aged well. It appeared tired and a bit rundown. The welcome and service were friendly and reasonably attentive. The menu is limited,... More

We spent 2 weeks in Placencia, and ate 4 of our meals at De Tatch. Breakfast was highly recommended, and while the food was good, we much prefered the environment in the evening- a quiet, softly lit, open-air restaurant with the sounds of the beach. For dinner, we got lobster, the shrimp dinner (Creole style), fried shrimp, and their specials... More

My husband and I have had lunch here numerous times as we are residents on the peninsula. Each time has been very enjoyable. The servers are very friendly and efficient. The food is great! I love their chicken burritos. I believe they are among the best of any restaurant in Placencia. Located on the beach, the view while dining is... More

We rode our bikes and had lunch here. The location and ambience can't be beat...casual, wooden benches right on the beach. The food was good...traditional Belizean style (I always get the daily special at these places, which is stewed chicken, rice and beans, and plantains...can't go wrong). Very casual, very laid back, very Placencia. Enjoy. Service is very SLOW, which... More

My husband and I had breakfast here one morning. We shared a fruit platter it was great. Service was fine. We sat and watched dolphins play in the Caribbean. This restrant sits on the beach very close to the water. The next time we went for lunch and the good was great but the service was bad. Such a pretty... More
