We went to Omar's twice during our stay in Placencia. The food was great and all the people were so nice. The very cute porch is decorated with beautiful flowers and lights. They do not have a liquor license and you are welcome to bring your own, which they are happy to chill for you. A wonderful experience.

We loved the fresh seafood and this small, local restaurant on the main road in Placencia. The options are simple--choose your seafood, choose your sauce, choose your rice. The locale is nothing special, but the food is quite good. Would recommend anything in a coconut curry sauce and whatever fish they are serving. They have no liquor license, but you can grab a beer from across the street. Great value--we had four dinners for less than $45 US.

Omar's food is not only tasty but his individualized treatment of his guest is remarkable. My daughter and I stopped by for a meal in Placencia, but when my daughter felt ill, Omar was to the rescue with a refreshing lime juice to treat her dehydration.
The snapper in curry and coconut sauce was finger licking good and the "rasta rice" is definitely a must have. Thanks for introducing another delicious way to prepare rice.

Incredible selection of fresh seafood cooked in the local creole style. Caribbean curry, whole fish or filets, hog snapper or grouper the night we were there. Friendly staff and an unpretentious atmosphere. It's just REALLY GOOD FOOD.

This place was the best meal we had on our whole trip. Bring bug spray, and they don't serve booze.

Waitress suggested the baraccuda, and it was incredible. Very local spot with local cooking, but not so local that you're ordering out of a wooden shak. We wich we went there more than we did.
