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.

Great seafood, varied menu serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Located right on the beach in Placencia right off of the boardwalk.

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.

Happy to report de tatch is still going strong. Great value, great food, excellent beach location. A couple more breakfast stops and it's consistently good food and service. Dinner last night, the smothered pork chop is incredible. We'll be back and refer people here without hesitation.

Our third year visiting Placencia and De Tatch is still perfect every single meal of the day. From Frijacks to pork chops, the quality and quantity of food can't be beat anywhere in the village. The breeze from the sea and the super friendly staff set the mood. See you next year!

The food was very very good the first visit. Had perhaps the best fish dish ever. on the second visit our only repeat, I had the same thing but they must have 2 chefs as the second time while good was not quite the same. The rest of the menu is right up there so give it a try. It's... More

I have eaten a few times at De Tatch but yesterday's fish and chips was exceptional. I was told it was snapper and it came piping hot, crispy coating, side of tartar sauce and Cole slaw. Chips were good too. The serving size was perfect, generous and plated nicely. Just one thing...wish it was nicer ketchup offered. My buddy had... More
