We took the advice of trip advisor and booked Omar and his son Grayson for the day. It started off with a boat ride in an open boat with a biminey . When it rained we got wet then we caught some fish then it really rained and I went overboard as it was way more fun following Omar as he pointed out nurse sharks and potential hiding spots for lobster. Then we hooked some lobster and headed back to the boat. It quit raining by then so we went to a near bye island for lunch. Grayson made some great ceviche and some fresh tuna sushi as well as some grilled snapper. Then back in the boat heading home with some more fishing and we caught some more fish. That night Grayson cooked up the remaining fish at their restaurant followed by some chocolate cake. Fun all day long!

We caught numerous fish in the Placencia area and frequently took the catch to Omar's and had them prepare. A small charge for the side dishes.

We visited Placencia for the 3rd year, Omars has always been one of our favorite places to eat, the food has always been awesome and lots of it with very reasonable prices... until this year. We went with friends that are locals and there was 5 of us. A few ordered the fish special either grilled or blackened, one ordered the garlic conch, and 2 of us had the coconut curry shrimp. Only 2 of us were happy with our meals. The fish was so salty it was barely edible, one didnt eat any of it, the Conch was good, I ordered the coconut curry shrimp and it was so spicy it was close to inedible for me, as I do not do hot and I took a palm full of Jalapenos out of a small cup of coconut curry shrimp. Since when is coconut curry have Jalapenos added to it? The portions were a lot smaller then years past and cost has gone up. We had more friends arrive and wanted to try it again, hoping it was just a poor cook. Again there were 7 of us, they seated us and gave us menus when we sat down. We sat there for about 10-15 minutes while one of the staff stood behind the counter and no one came to take our drink orders, we left. When Omar was cooking, or was in the restaurant the food was awesome and the service good. We were all very disappointed in Omars this year and would not recommend it unless you know Omar himself is cooking.

We tried several of the fish specials and they tasted fine, but not anything to write home about. The outdoor seating area is comfortable. Omar's only serves soft drinks and fruit juices for lunch.

Had fish with garlic here one night. The fish was fresh and delicious. Open air restaurant, garden like surroundings.
