Group of 12 of us had a great time here. The menu is small which is a good thing here. What you get is fresh and cooked perfect. The family owned spirit is alive and happy. Great value for the quality. You bring your own adult beverages they provide mix ice and glasses no problem. You can also enjoy the... More

Nice setting and good place to avoid commercial and noisy beach options. Everything home made and on the spot. Pity we couldn't try fresh fish,...

We walked there from the Placencia Sidewalk. Great food! I am not big on fish and they had plenty of other options for me. My husband really enjoyed his fish dinner. They do not serve alcohol there but allow you to purchase beers at the grocery nearby and bring in. Friendly staff. Good prices. Cool local vibe.

During our trip to Placencia, we wanted to venture out of the resort for a fun night out. Upon asking the locals for restaurant recommendations, the overwhelming response was Omar's. Eager to experience this local favorite, we scanned the menu and sought to place our orders. The young lady who approached our table demonstrated a foul attitude from the time... More

The restaurant is in poor conditions, tables, chairs, setting, etc. The food is acceptable, but prices around $12 per dish, which I beleive is overpriced for the conditions of the restaurant. You can find better options in Placencia to eat for that price at a nicer restaurant. I also had an inconvenience, when entering the bathroom there was a nail... More

Had family visit during our 6 wk stay in Belize and Omar's was recommended so we went and we were not disappointed. Snapper stew (curry or Cajun) was perfect with the best cole slaw.

My family and I went here on our first night in Placencia and it was great. I had a bean & cheese burrito and it was great. There's a nice vibe there. Also, it's BYOB and there's a store right across the street.

My husband and I tried to eat at this restaurant a hotel employee recommended, but it was closed because the proprietor's son was getting married that day. Our children were in town separately and also tried to eat there. The next time all four of us tried eating at the restaurant but the cook wasn't in the kitchen yet. On... More

Great caught fresh fish and key lime pie made by the lady that lives behind the restaurant. Worth the trip
