“Affordably Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Omar's Grub is excellent. We had a full breakfast, including excellent fry jacks, a Belizean specialty, fresh fish and eggs. All out on the eclectically furnished open porch in the warm air in downtown Placencia.

Our whole meal was less then $8.00 USD for two of us.

Enjoy!

“yummy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Great patio. Delish food. We had to walk next door to get a beer to have. Try the fish dishes with the curry. They are like a stew. Totally yummy!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Stayed in Placencia for 5 nights and ate twice in Omar's. The BBQ was extremely tasty. Relaxed, chilled out vibe. Great prices too.

“A wonderful local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Omar's is right on the main street. Three of the four of us had (fresh) lobster dinners ($20!!!) with terrific sides of rasta rice, cold slaw, and a small, tasty slice of plantain. The other dish was a seafood something that my husband loved. This is a rough, open air place, with very tasty, not expensive food that is well worth the visit.

“Great grub for a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Omar's serves exactly what the sign says - great creole grub! We had fish and shrimp in the spicy creole sauce and it was wonderful, and inexpensive compared to other restaurants around.

Pro tip - they don't have a liquor license but you can walk right next door (I think it was called Charro or something like that) and get a couple beers at the bar to bring back to your table. They don't mind.
