Wonderful, local cuisine with rustic charm. Ate here as soon as we got to Placencia. Tasty coconut curry fish and butter garlic prawns! Sounds heavy but was a delightful, light late lunch!!

Really wanted to enjoy my meal after reading some of the reviews. The fish of the day with coconut curry was good. I didn’t care for the shrimp as they were overcooked. There was one, very nice server for the entire restaurant. It was slightly...busy so it was a challenge for her to keep up. Also found the meal was overpriced.More

We ate here on the first night. I don't even remember what I had so obviously it wasn't that good. Maybe you'll have a different experience.

The food was very good but the options were quite limited. That being said, we were happy with the food.

Delicious seafood dishes, especially the creole sauce seafood mix! We had the one with conch, shrimp and crab. The crab was huge! They also had what seemed to us the most delicious conch fritters we’ve had in Placencia, we had to return for seconds the...next days! Highly recommended. Nice ambiance in a beautifully painted relaxing atmosphereMore

We first came here with a barracuda filet we had caught that day - we had it fried and grilled and both were delicious! We came back a second time and had the shrimp and conch, neither of which were very good. However, the grilled...fish was great!More

After a day of fishing our guide recommended Omar's for a place that would cook our catch. We took a mutton snapper to them and they prepared a fantastic meal for my wife and me. We had fresh lime juice as well and it was...awesome too! I'd eat here again.More

The conch ceviche was delicious. We also loved the crab and the snapper coconut curry. Very chill vibe. We will definitely return.

Omar’s is a small family owned restaurant who knows seafood! We took several filets of fish we caught and they prepared them perfectly for us. It’s a must go for your trip to Placencia.

We arrived just ahead of our booked time and walked out just over an hour later having eaten nothing and the water we ordered not even brought. We were told the food would be a further 10 to 15 minutes. We would have understood if...on arrival or at some point someone had warned us there would be a wait. We could have then made a decision. I have no idea where other reviewers found the great staff. They were lackadaisical and could not have cared less. There are plenty of good options, I would suggest you don’t risk the dreadful experience we had.More

Good food and drink. I chose the creole crab which was excellent but I made a lot of mess getting the meat out of the shell. Worth the effort though!

Started with conch fritters which were very good. I had lobster and others had lobster and shrimp. Located at ground floor, I suggest long sock or bug spray for early evening gnats. Love the ambiance of place

We took a fishing trip and came home with a few fish! Omar's offered to prepare the fish 3 out of 4 different ways! Our meals were delicious. For $9US a plate, they cooked the fish and provided sides (rice and beans and a small...salad). Omar's is a BYOB place as well!More

Yes they do; however, you might want to take a look at how much you'll get charged for using a CC in Belize. We've found it much cheaper to pay in cash and not have to cover the 3 percent or so to use a CC.

I'm sure they don't. But the taxis are located about 100 feet away from the restaurant.
