Right when we wandered in, the owner told us that his son just got back from fishing and was preparing some fillets, so I obviously took him up on that and got the freshly caught snapper in a creole seasoning. One of the best fish dishes I've ever eaten. My husband got the lobster burrito and I was lucky enough... More

We had 3 different types of seafood cooked in a sauce and our orders got mixed up. Considering we were just 2 people, definite minus points for that. But the food was good, they fish their own seafood every day and it shows. Would be nice if they also served alcohol.

We chose Omar's because of the cute atmosphere and need for seafood. To be honest the kitchen looked really messy and the dining room needed to be cleaned. There were a lot of empty wine bottles everywhere even though they do not serve beer or wine and our table was very sticky. BUT the food was delicious!! I've never had... More

We almost did not eat here because it looked a bit trashy but it was referred to us by a local and I am so glad we went. I had a chicken burrito and it was delicious and very well priced. Great prices, great food - you must stop and eat at Omar's!

My mouth died and went to heaven! We dined at Omar's three times during our short visit to Placencia. We were delighted with the quality, portions and prices of the food. Everything on the menu looked fantastic. We were able to enjoy the curry, garlic and creole preparations of the fresh fish and lobster and everything was terrific. Omar and... More

I had the fillet fish with Garlic Butter Sauce and my husband had Fish and Chips. We both left full and very happy. The owner was a delight to talk with and the atmosphere was like Placencia - friendly and very casual.

This place does fish well - the lobster with butter was awesome. The local fish in Creole sauce, also awesome.

We selected Omar's based on reviews. However, we were disappointed with both of our meals. The fish was over-cooked and dry, and the burritos were bland and skimpy on filling. The service was just OK. This was our least enjoyable meal during our 10 day stay in Belize.

This is definitely a local dive. I would like to say I tried some local fare here, but I didn't. I was craving a hamburger and Omar's delivered. The bun was something local, freshly baked, and marvelous. The beef was good with melty cheese and crispy lettuce and tomato. I am craving that flavor now!

Omar’s was recommended to us by some of the locals (read: our bartenders), so we headed over enthusiastically on a breezy night. There is no alcohol served at Omar’s, but you can purchase it at Charo’s next door and bring it over in plastic cups. My husband got what was easily $70 worth of Maker’s Mark for $10 there, so...
