We ordered a 3 piece creole fish selection as an entree to share....crab, snapper and barracuda. It was very good with the crab being the favored selection. I had noticed another couple dining on burritos and they paid their bill by credit card. When it was time to pay our bill they wouldn't accept my credit card. It took forever... More

Omar's is known for it's seafood. They advertise that they are nothing fancy and it's true. The menu is sparse but if you're looking for a decent local catch, this is your place. When you arrive, you will be informed on which fish are available that day. You pick the sauce or method of cooking and you receive the seafood... More

Are you kidding me. Ended up with a shrimp dish and we're guessing the shrimp were frozen. Just not an overall good experience and would not go back. First impressions are important. Waitress attitude of not wanting to be there.

Great restaurant and family operated. Fresh crab was available and served in a large bowl..Fabulous..My wife had fresh grouper and the sauces were perfect. This was a great choice and we would recommend it to all who are visiting the village. Prices were very acceptable (range of $15/meal)

I was told that Omar's had the best fish dishes in Placencia Village. In my mind, it didn't quite meet my expectations. I had the red snapper in a coconut curry sauce with yellow ginger rice. Small portion and the fish was overlooked. We had a party of 10 so I was able to sample other dishes. The shrimp dishes... More

So. Good. Loved the mix-n-match idea with the sauce and the seafood. Everything was excellent. I wish we would have eaten here more than once while we were in town.

Best food we had in Belize. The service was not great but I would go back again in a heartbeat for the food. It was also well priced. It can get packed.

A very good Belizian restaurant. I had the crab, and it was so good. I was able to sit up front at a table and watch all the happenings on the main street through Placencia. Joy!

We had been to Omar's in August 2016 - a bit pricey but great food and great service. So, naturally we wanted to return during our March 2017 visit. The waitress seemed bothered having us there from the moment we walked up (about 1245 pm on a Tuesday - and only one family of three were there when we arrived).... More

I have eaten at Omar's on the previous two occasions I have visited Placencia and it is a tremendous treat. Great prices, great food, great service, and more than a meal. It is an experience.
