My family and I had a great meal at De Tatch. The staff was very friendly and it was great sitting right on the beach. They made some off the menu vegetarian dishes for my wife and daughter. I loved the chicken and my son loved the lobster. Key Lime pie was gone in seconds.

A cold beer on a hot day, right on the beach can't be beaten. Friendly staff, quick service and great food. I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch there in the palapa style restaurant right on Placencia beach. Very popular with locals, it was first stop in Placencia and i'm not sorry it was.

Great food, and right on the beach for a beautiful view! The food is delicious and the stuffed fry jack is great and very large! Free-wifi and their drinks are great. Try their watermelon juice!

The thatched roof restaurant, as well as the palapas on the beachside, make for a great beach stop! A little down the beach from the big noisy beach bars, you'll find De Tatch quiet and relaxing. The menu is varied each day as seasonal daily catches are cooked to your liking. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served. Excellent food... More

Great food and great location under the thatch on the beach. We caught some fish earlier that morning and brought it to De Tatch to see if they would cook it for us for lunch. They cooked it up in three different ways for us and did a really fantastic job. It was a delicious meal and super cheap.

Good food, good location on the beach and perfect dining on a warm evening. Wi-fi, cocktails, local beer, good ambiance. What more could you want?

Excellent food, great service, the best location for a relaxing lunch. How can you beat taking your sandles off and enjoying a Belikin (or coke) under a thatched roof table on the sand.

Went for lunch and was very under whelmed. Real pity because the restaurant itself is really pretty, sat right on the beach. Try somewhere else.
