We thought this restaurant was pretty good but a bit touristy. The fry jacks were tasty though and Were offered at a few different ways.

Omars is one of my favorite eateries in Palencia. The people are friendly and the seafood is fresh. They catch alot of it themselves. The place doesn't look like much but dont be fooled.

Was somewhat disappointed with the food. My family and I went to dinner one night and the food was just average. I would say it was our least favorite place to eat while we were here. The food just didn't have much zing to it...More
