Finding vegetarian options were difficult, but this place had a ton of them, almost as many as the meat options. The food was also delicious and there were even Mediterranean options. The server we had wasn't the best but she got us our food and...More

The day we went, it smelled of garbage and we couldn't stay. They are only open until 4pm. Some said it had good breakfast food, but we didn't venture back.

Nothing real special, just a good place to grab a quick bite to eat. The smoothie and food were good.

Best smoothies /shakes in town! Wide variety of flavors, some ingredients unique to the Caribbean. Open very early for breakfast and make a killer lamb burger!

Delicious conch fritters and wraps! The drinks are also cheap and the margaritas were big. It was really hot the day we were there bu they had fans on. Did not have to wait long for food or drinks. Great relaxing vibe and delicious food.

We enjoyed ourselves here. Good smoothies - very refreshing and not expensive. They had good service and a great view of the beach and main dock. I look forward to returning

We arrived to Placencia early and walked down to the water front, The Shak is right there on the beach. Service was friendly and the food excellent - Conch fritters were the best we had all trip!

Service was very bad and the food wasn't much better. Our dishes were brought out one at a time as they were made. One person was finished before the last plate came out.
