Don't let the outward appearance of this restaurant fool you. Omar is quite a character and will sing, tell stories and generally keep you entertained. We ran into him a few days later in San Ignacio and he gave us a very enthusiastic wave and hello when he saw us.

One of the locals recommended this place and we went once for breakfast and once for dinner. The day we went for dinner, we were lucky that Omar had just gotten in some fresh snook (a very mild, tasty white fish) and lobster. We had one of each dinner and both were delicious. The snook was done in a creole sauce, and our lobster came with garlic butter.

For breakfast, we tried the huevos rancheros and the breakfast burrito and stuffed fry jack which were all tasty. A local told us that Omar has very good coffee and he was right - Gallon Jug coffee which was very tasty.

We would recommend this place based on the good quality food and friendly service that we received.

I ate here for breakfast many times and still miss the fry jacks and fresh juice often. The best dish I ate there was the Creole lobster made by the owners son. The flavor was rich and the meal was a good size portion. I came in alone most of the time and Omar allways made me feel at home. Keep an eye out for neat tiny lizards that crawl along the flowered railings.

The three of us had shrimp, lobster and crab and it was so overcooked it was inedible-service so poor we felt like they were doing us a favor to do the least amount of service-the cook left to go somewhere and we needed something they had to go find them-t-the garlic butter that was served was like bouillon -too many good places in Placencia to waste time here

Omar's is a great little spot on the main strip. I believe Omar catches most of his own seafood and he's insistent on good quality fish. He also serves great fresh juices (or BYOB) that he makes on the spot. Omar is a real sweetie and he takes the time to get to know his patrons and always stopped to say hello when he saw us around the village. He goes out of his way to ensure that visitors (and locals too) have a great stay in Placencia.

This is a little hut that you could easily miss on the main strip in Placencia. The day we went there was fresh baracuda and king fish fillets which were caught by Omar senior and cooked to perfection by the young chef. Wonderful.
