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

The fish I ate for lunch was great and the waiter was very attentive. I would recommend Omar's to anyone traveling to Placencia.

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

They serve standard food, taken from the supermarket, and in my opinion, it's below the Belizean standard for food. Positive note: it's very cheap. Important: as they are muslim they are not serving any kind of alcoholic beverage. You are warned, you can't have a beer here!

Fried shrimp was really good. Snapper was good. 3 way of shrimp, crab claws, and lobster were good. No alcohol - you bring your own.

Grilled lobster, simple presentation, great taste, great recommendation of location (from the guy we rented transport from) and from the waiter, in terms of dish and sauce. Very low key, byob, slow service but that's kind of the pace of things here in general. I really liked it.

My wife and I were just wandering around Placencia looking for somewhere to have lunch and picked this place on a whim. I believe it's all outdoor seating, but it's covered and there's fans going. I had the Snook (catch of the day) in coconut curry and my wife had the fish and chips. I am not exaggerating, this was... More

The one server working was totally swamped - probably had 15 tables going at once. Getting our order taken took a loooong time, then getting food took longer, and once food was delivered, he never checked back on us, and spent the next hour playing "if I don't look at your table, I don't have to deal with you." A... More

Had clinger crab in creole sauce. This has got to be one of the best crabs I have ever cracked into. It took some work just because this crab has a thick she'll. However the sweet meat that lay inside that crab combined with Omar's creole sauce was just amazing. The burritos were excellent as well, had chicken fajita, which... More
