Omar the owner has won the most friendly award!! No wonder people all over placencia knows him. The seafood meal (with creole sauce) was good. We’ve had mixed seafood and catch of the day, crabs.

Highly recommend this little restaurant, if you are taking a Norwegian cruise that stops in harvest cove, take the water taxi to Placencia village and find Omar’s, it’s the best food you will have on your cruise

We ate at Omar's last year and the food (sautéed conch with garlic butter sauce) was so good we talked about it all the time. This year we returned twice! The outside setting is also fun because the kids could play, and in fact played...More

Yes they do; however, you might want to take a look at how much you'll get charged for using a CC in Belize. We've found it much cheaper to pay in cash and not have to cover the 3 percent or so to use a CC.
