“Very very fresh Lion fish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Omar and his crew do a great job creating typical Belizean food and explaining in detail what's in it and how's prepared.

“Great Crab Creole”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Best Crab Creole in town for a very good price!! Authentic and the real thing, only downside is the swarm of flies fighting for your meal, so make sure you have the fan BEHIND your table:)

“Best food in Placencia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We met the server the night before we planned to eat at Omar's and became fast friends. We went the next night and had a fabulous meal - my boyfriend had coconut curry snapper dish and I had the crab claws in garlic butter sauce. We were both incredibly impressed with the food and how very friendly Sheldon is and was. Although Omar's is just a wee little place, their hospitality is well worth going for your own experience. The cost of your meal alone will astound you! Thank you, Sheldon!

“Great local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Great food that is more authentic to the natives and more reasonably priced than some of the other restaurants. Servings are great and the service was excellent. Spent numerous meals there getting the latest seafood catch cooked any way you want it!

“Casual but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

The coconut curry sauce was tasty. The fish fresh. Service was friendly. We enjoyed our lunch. Inexpensive. They just need beer.
