“Probably the best beachside restaurant in Placencia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2010

De Tatch occupies a prime spot on the beach, just off the Sidewalk. It offers unpretentious local food at pretty decent prices. The staff are friendly and if you bore of the view, there's free wifi. I ate some superb Kingfish steaks while the others had Shrimp with Cilantro and Coconut rice. Very generous portions. Recommended.

“Simply the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2010

This is the place to eat in Placencia. I have been visiting this village for years and De Tatch is always my first stop. The conch fritters are consistently perfect and I wish I could replicate their jerk shrimp at home. I have never had a bad meal at De Tatch. The service has always been fantastic. If you are visiting Placencia make sure to try De Tatch. You will be glad you did!

“Terrible service, Terrible food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2010

The experience was terrible from the start. Once we entered the restaurant, we were hit with a billowing cloud of cigarette smoke. When we took our seats, our orders weren't placed until about 10 minutes after we arrived. We were served our drinks another 10 minutes later. Then our food didnt arrive for another 35-40 minutes. The food was horrible. I ordered the rum mango chicken, and the sauce was overly sweet and tangy, the chicken had no flavor,and the coconut rice tasted like it had been sitting there all day. The chicken and chips baskets my friends ordered weren't any better. The chicken again had no flavor and the fries were soggy. All the while the tables next to us had people smoking and when we asked the waiters to please ask them to stop smoking, they simply ignored us. I definitely wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone.
