“Creative cocktails with a balcony view.”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

The service at Rumfish is very good, with friendly owners who
make the rounds to check on their customers. The two dishes
we had, nut crusted Snook and Red Snapper in a curry broth
were both excellent. Their cocktail list is really impressive,
and are well executed. The wine list one the other hand, is not
so impressive. For a restaurant that has vino in it's name, and
one of it's owners, who came from the beverage industry. We
were somewhat disappointed. The wine list is not very deverse
and is slanted to Italian wines. Albeit good wines, just not
alot of deversity. Overall we had a great time and a wonderful
meal. The balcony seating, to view of the happenings of
Placencia was fun.

“Unique in Placencia”
Reviewed January 28, 2014 via mobile

Rumfish is good all-around. The owner is super friendly, the service top notch and the food is really enjoyable. Looking for something other than rice and beans and grilled fish of the day? This place fits the bill and has great ambiance! The best thing I tried were the pork belly tacos- ohhhh man I want another!!

“Quite enjoyed our meal and time”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

4 of us came in without a reservation. Although we ordered drinks at the bar we were seated before they arrive. I had the conch fritters for an appetizer. The sauce with it was excellent and very spicy. We each had the snook special and all agree it was very good. Cooked just right, good flavour. The potatoes were also good. Atmosphere was great. We sat at the table talking for about an hour after dinner. They came around several times asking if we wanted drinks or water and at no time trying to hustle us out the door. It was a very relaxing time. The owners came by a couple of times ensuring we were taken care off. All in all a great night!

“Love this place”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

We loved the ambiance here, plus the food was excellent. We went for apps one night and had the Thai shrimp croquettes- they are fabulous! We went back our last night to have them again (!) and also lucked out and had the special "Snook Crudo" (sashimi style snook) - it was so great too. Highly recommend!

“The best food in Placencia.”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

The Rumfish was recommended by our hotel as one of the best local restaurants. It more than exceeded our expectations! We had such a good dinner and drinks we went back the following night and enjoyed live music on the porch. The owners John and Pam were most gracious. The food was the best we experienced in Placencia! Don't miss it!
