De Tatch is a great place to eat along the sidewalk in Placencia. The Mango Shrimp Curry was probably my favorite meal from my time in Belize.

We had dinner and we both had citrus grouper, salad and plantains and cole slaw. The grouper was cooked perfectly and the citrus reduction sauce was marvelous. We came back the next day for breakfast. Coffee only so so but the egg omelet was filled with fresh vegetables and served with bakery bread, butter and honey. Partner had the Belgium... More

We had a couple drinks and 2 chicken dinners - both were 2-chicken breasts each - so we took back to our hotel and had the rest for lunch another day. So - good on that front, we turned 2 meals into 4. Although we enjoyed De Tatch, we felt that there were better options.

We were very disappointed this time around. Wife didn't get her sandwich until after I had finished mine. The snapper fingers were quite tasty but the fries were barely edible. There are much better and less expensive dining options just down the sidewalk. Try one of those.

Detach is one of our favorites when in Placencia. Their always fresh seafood special is great meal and a good value for your money and brand new now is: They are also open on Wednesdays. The restaurant is right on the beach and the setting can't be any better. For desert, try one of Christine's cakes - delicious!

This was the first restaurant we tried in Placencia and was worth the trip back on our last evening. They have a fine local food menu such as fried conch (which was excellent). My husband had the cilantro fish which was so good he had it again on our second visit.

We stayed at the Sea Spray hotel and the De'Tatch restaurant is right next door. The view is fantastic, with a fabulous ocean breeze. The employees were friendly and helpful. And the food was excellent. No joke... After we tried a couple of other places we decided that the next time we go to Placencia we will stay at the... More

This is one of our favorite breakfast spots in town. And best of all it is located on the beach so has a beautiful view! They do offer lunch and dinner however we did not try it though the menu looked good.
