Great and fresh seafood

This is a simple little place with fresh seafood. Try your seafood in the creole sauce, it is soooo good! Service was good and the menu offered a variety of seafood with your choice of sauces. Prices were also very reasonable. I'll be back for sure!

This place is known for their imaginative ways of cooking seafood. They serve other dishes too that are quite good. They are right on the street so it can get really hot. The service is about the same as many places in Placencia. Kind of slow but worth the wait. Just don't go if you're in a hurry. The setting... More

This restaurant is famous for their local fish dishes, freshly caught. We weren't that impressed, though. But okay to try. I had lion fish which is a fish we should all eat more of, so that it will be over-fished and extinct (it ruins the reefs and has no predators). It actually tasted fine.

Great staff, and best creole lobster in town (even more so when comparing prices). We also had great (curry) crab, and a lobster burrito. It is a BYOB place, but there's literally a minimarket down the street that sells beer. If you simply want to get great food without frills, and a laid-back atmosphere, it cannot be beaten!

We had a great meal at Omar's, simple and very tasty. The service was great. If you want an alcoholic drink with your dinner, you need to bring it along. Recommend Omar's for a meal while you are in Placencia.

Several people had recommended this restaurant. Fresh seafood but you have to bring your own alcohol. We ordered the fish combo and shared. They brought us separate side dishes which was nice.

At Omar's the menu consists of the catch of the day. One of the best meals we had in Placencia! This was also the only place with Barracuda on the menu. Very relaxed atmosphere, would recommend.

After spending 4 days in the jungle and wanting authentic Belizian food everyone recommended we try Omar's. The restaurant is very casual but the food that came out was spectacular. I had seafood 3 way which allowed me to pick my sauce I choose coconut curry and had lobster,crab and grouper. All entrees come with rice and beans and coleslaw.... 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.
