If you are looking for linen napkins and polish, this is not the place for you! If you are looking for a relaxed, family-friendly vibe with great food - then Omar's is worth a stop.

Located in the Placencia Village Omar's continues to provide the freshest seafood on the peninsula. The real star of the show is Omar Sr. who is the fisherman in the business and has been fishing the waters of Belize for decades. His two son's are now running the restaurant while Omar continues to do what he does best...provide direct access... More

Went for lunch and we both had fish and cheese burgers. Fish was grilled. They were perfect. Nice and quiet, not busy and reasonable prices.

We sat down and looked at the menu which says"ask about our daily specials". So we did. They said they did not have any that day. 5 minutes later after we ordered they wrote 3 specials on the board. A lot of reviews write about how fresh their seafood was. Placencia is almost surrounded by water, fresh fish is everywhere.... More

Seafood was terrific. Try the curry. My wife found the jerk chicken a little dry but I thought it had good flavor. We both agreed the seafood was awesome. No beer served but Omar doesn't mind if you bring your own.

Our party of four had the jerk chicken,traditional creole crab and curried crab. These were all fantastic. The only complaint was we arrived close to closing time so they only had 2 orders of the jerk chicken left and we had mostly necks and legs in our dishes. The flavour was the best on the peninsula so far

Exploring Placencia, we saw the fisherman on the beach filleting gorgeous tuna and mahi-mahi - our friend instructed us that this fresh fish was going straight to Omar's, and that the tuna and mahi-mahi would be good tonight. :) It feels great to patronize a local restaurant run by Belizeans!!! Nothing to the place, super mellow, bring your own beer... More

Easygoing atmosphere... everything fresh (Omar says "If it's fresher, it's still in the ocean)... Coconut curry was the best flavor... grouper & lobster were amazing. No liquor license, but you can bring beers from the restaurant across the street.
