Omar's is a great place for fresh fish. They offer a variety of cooking sauces and the rice and beans are very good. I've had better stew chicken at other restaurants down here, so was disappointed in Omar's since it was a special. However, the fish and conch entrees were excellent, and very reasonable.

I highly recommend this spot for anyone wanting some local cuisine caught by locals. Our garlic shrimp dish was delicious. I wish we had gone on a fishing excursion with Omar's and then have them prepare the catch for the meal that night. We saw one family or couple had done that and we were kicking ourselves for realizing this too late. If I were to go back to Placencia I would plan this for certain!

Not because it's fancy but simply because of it's unique decoration,friendly owners and the fact that it's one of the only local owned spots that's open all day around from breakfast to dinner i would consider this my #1 choice . Great food , very deliciously spiced and friendly stuff taking care of you in the original Belizean atmosphere starting from breakfast ending with Dinner at a great $-value ... for those who know that little town called Placencia from 10 years back would know the meaning of it's unique flair :) ...Keep it up !!

Great fish and chips. My wife had Garlic butter fish that melted in your mouth. Very cool place with a great local feel.

This Belizian restaurant, owned by locals, offers superb fresh fish options nightly. And you select how you want it prepared: coconut curry, garlic & butter, creole style, etc. YUMMY no matter which way you select.

We had barracuda the first night we dined here, and it was delicious. And cheap: $8 US which included a choice of sides (beans & rice, coconut rice, ginger rice w/veggies) + cole slaw. DELICIOUS!

We dined here again 2 nights later in order to enjoy the last of LOBSTER season (which ended Feb 14). Again, it was prepared in the style you requested, and was cooked to perfection.

The only slight drawback is that they do not serve alcohol. However, as others had pointed out, you can walk next door to Charo's where we got THE BEST rum drinks in all of Placencia!! And both Charo's and Omar's are quite happy with that arrangement, so don't be shy.

What a great combo of food & drink. As I mentioned, we were so happy with it that we did it twice in a 5-day stay.
