“Great Local Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

The baracuda and lobster dishes were excellent, but no alcohol. Great for a quick dinner, very casual

“Great seafood and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Great food at a decent price. Like many of the eateries its seafood with a local twist. The snapper and lobster were excellent. Wish I was there in conch season.

“Recommended by locals - but disappointed by food quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

I visited Omar's after asking two locals where they would recommend eating seafood for lunch in Placencia. I ordered the Lobster burrito which was reasonably priced but appeared nothing like the "stock" photo on the menu. However, I was most disappointed by the amount of lobster in the burrito - which amounted to three small pieces.

I understand that Lobster is expensive, but compared to the 10" tortilla, the amount was certainly not in proportion. However, the restaurant did provide us with extra Lobster upon request, so maybe this was a one-time occurrence. In any event, it was not the experience I expected.

“Great value. Authentic Creole Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

A ramshackle little place on the "new main street" in Placencia, the food was very tasty, reasonably priced, and served in a good portion.
