We arrived with our two kids in tow, and did not feel pressured to silence them. Being on the beach, the kids could go play while we waited for our food to arrive. De Tatch is pretty quick with food delivery; especially by Belizean standards. We waited no more than 20 minutes from the time we ordered until it was... More

We eat here at least on or two meals every time we visit Placencia. The shrimp platter is to die for and easily shared by two. Love it and right on the beach.

Tried unsuccesfully three times to eat here. Even knowing to avoid the weekly closing on wednesdays, it was a lot of wasted effort. The one time they were open as per their opening hours, the place was so packed with people waiting for food that i agreed with the friendly waitress that it probably was too long a wait. Part...

This is a great place, especially for breakfast. Their fryjacks are the best in town! We made this spot our food destination several times while down in Placencia. The service is great and the prices are totally reasonable.

We stopped at this place for dinner our first night in Placencia. We were not disappointed as our meal was very good, and right on the beach listening to the waves lapping up on the shore. We also tried this place for breakfast and were not disappointed with breakfast as it also was very good.

Right on the beach in Placencia - service was friendly, food was OK. When we ate there there were no locals in the restaurant, only tourists, which makes me think there are better choices in Placencia.
