We went to Omar's after seeing reviews on TripAdvisor and talking with locals. Omar's is locally owned, and managed by Omar and his two sons. It's a small place, and like many places in Placencia, the only option is dining al fresco. They had plenty of fans to cool things down and keep bugs away. The menu is very simple... More

A must stop in Placencia. Fish is fresh, curry is flavorful. Very casual setting. BYO - stop and get beer on the way. Perfect spot for local, incredibly tasty food.

We ate here almost every day of our trip to placentia. This is a quaint family owned place where the food is great and the people are even better. We tried fry Jack's at several different places and these were by far the best around, don't forget to try the guava jelly with them. The jelly is made in the... More

The food was good. We all 3 had different entrees and they were all delicious. It is BYOB, so we crossed the street and bought beers to go with our meal. Very relaxed and casual.

Delicious food, great service and very affordable! We had the wahoo and snapper which were delicious. It was byob with a store across the street to buy it. Service was awesome! Very cool to experience the culture there. Would definitely recommend it. Friends of ours also had brunch there and said the lobster omelette was amazing.

I had the lobster trip. Lobster cooks three ways. All were tasty and caught the same day. Omar was very friendly and told us about the house specialties. Bringing our own wine was great.

We had supper there and although food was tasty ( try the grilled barracuda) we were bothered by flies a lot which diminished our enjoyment.

Our first night in Placencia we wandered aimlessly trying to find good Caribbean and creole food to fill our bellies and quench our hunger. Each place we stopped along the walk was a disappointment that resulted in us leaving with lighter wallets and empty stomachs. In an act of desperation we left the sidewalk and headed to the main road... More

We enjoyed our lunch at Omar's. Fish was good and reasonably priced. I would recommend this establishment if visiting Placencia.
