Very good fresh seafood

We probably enjoyed our meal at Omar's as much as any meal we had in Belize. They catch the seafood in the morning and cook it that day, so you're not gong to find fresher seafood. The ambiance is good, but no frills. Food was excellent and staff was friendly. THe sign out front says "BYOB" and... read more

My sister's & I was looking for a place to eat that was relaxing, outdoors & good food. We came across Omar's Restaurant. We sat down to order the food was tasty. The next morning we had breakfast and lunch. If you are looking for fresh, tasty and great service Omar's is the place.

We were in placencia two weeks and tried most places but settled on omars as our favorite place. Omar junior was there most nights. The food was really good and reasonably priced. Don't expect quick service. Go before you are too hungry.

Very down home, excellent lobster and crab dishes. Be prepared to get your fingers messy. And if you drink anything other than soft drinks, BYOB. Had great lunches here several times and were always very pleased.

We popped into Omar's on our third morning in Placencia for breakfast and although the food was pretty good they did lack a bit of service and some of the essentials. For example it took a while to get served even though there wasn't many people at all in the place and when we got to order there was no... More

Cooked by Omar's son who is also a prolific and talented artist! My husband really liked the jerk chicken and we enjoyed conversation with Omar's son.

Omar's was highly recommended to us by multiple folks who live in Placencia. Omar's does not have the upscale ambience, the sophisticated menu offerings as some of the big name restaurants. What they do have is fresh, local food cooked to perfection. The seafood on the menu is basically the catch of the day. My wife loved to the crab... More

Food was good, but pretty pricey for Belize. No alcohol was available, which sort of detracts from the outdoor dining experience.

We ordered from Omar's for lunch and had it delivered to our Cabana. They were quick and the food was delicious. We had the Belizian staple of chicken and rice but it was fantastic!

We had lunch at Omar's on a weekday. The fried barracuda was delicious, the best meal on our whole trip! Omar was really friendly and he spoke to us a bit before our meal came out. I also bought his wive's homemade guava jam. It was thick like honey and very sweet, delicious on coconut bread!
