Worth a return visit!

Omar's is a quaint, make yourself at home kind of place. The seafood is very tastefully prepared and you will definitely want to go back for more. The owner is often present and is very friendly, as the staff are also. Mmmmm........makes me hungry just thinking about it.

We shared seafood 3 way (crab, snapper & shrimp) with creole sauce for lunch. A large amount of seafood with large crab claws, and it tasted great!

We met a person who spend the day fishing and caught dorado and wahoo. He brought wahoo steaks and dorado (mani mani) filets to Omars as asked him to cook it up. When we got there, Omar made the fresh fish 3 different ways, creole style, blackened grilled and coconut curry. All of the dishes were very flavorful and they... More

Went for dinner. Both of us had the crab with different sauces, garlic butter and creole. Comes with twice and cole slaw. The crab claws were huge...no delicate eating here, it's hands on and messy. The crab was sweet , the rice and cole slaw okay. My hubby had the seaweed shake, more nutmeg vanilla flavor than anything. It's BYOB.

Excellent spot. Great food for reasonable prices in a relaxed atmosphere. I had the creole conch - oh wow. BYOB though.

The food was fresh and had local flavors. Setting was casual and no frills. Food was inexpensive for the quality.

On a lazy rainy day I stopped here for lunch and had fish, it was done in the local style and I loved the sauce but the fish was a little dry for me. Service was good, prices right on and it's right in the middle of town. It's a popular spot with locals and tourists alike.

One of the unexpected pleasures of our stay in Placencia was the abundance of restaurants that serve fresh, local cuisine, one of which was Omar's. Restaurants in Belize allow patrons to bring their own alcohol, so it was possible for our group of five to dine well for between $150 BZ and $250 BZ. Other restaurants that should be included...

Omar's is wonderfully relaxed and is a bring your own booze (there is a supermarket two mins away if you forget, like we did). The food is fresh, delicious and traditional. Omar and his team are friendly and attentive. Worth a visit!

This place came highly recommended by locals, visitors and ex-pats alike, so we had to try it! They offer many fresh fish options (the options depend what the local fisherman caught that day!) in the sauce style of your choice. In fact, one of the cooks brought out a whole, fresh Mahi Mahi that was caught that afternoon, to show... More
