Omar's is located on the Main Street very close to the boardwalk and beach. It is an outside eating restaurant with very good local food. We had the grouper fillet and beans and rice and it was excellent.

The one place you can count on to be open, due the vagaries of the restaurant business in Placencia. The food isn't the top of the list, but it's always good but kind of a limited menu.

This was yet another place in Placencia with a great service, nice ambient if quite simple, but the food, again, felt a bit bland, without that rich flavor I got used to around the caribbean. At the end of the trip it started feeling it might be cultural/just the way food is cooked there, but I certainly felt it was... More

We had the grouper (coconut curry) and the snapper (yellow curry), both dishes were amazing. Please note - BYOB and there is a supermarket just across the street, which was convenient! Omar's is a definite visit for a great lunch or dinner.

I like going to Omar's. It is a relaxed atmosphere and the food is good. Since I live in Belize, I enjoy eating local food that is well prepared. This is what you get at Omars. And you can order your fish the way you want it.

Every time we travel to Placencia we make sure to eat at Omar's a couple times. Great food at a great price. It's a BYOB restaurant, so bring your own Beer or Wine that you want with your meal. If you forget there is a store across the street where you can buy your refreshments. We always do a fishing... More

Always heard Omar's was a fantastic place for local food and seemed busy when ever we walked by. Finally stopped in one night just before 8pm. Felt like we were keeping the staff beyond their shift. Once we ordered we didn't see our waitress again for another 45 minutes when she delivered our food. I take that back. I could... More

Went in Saturday evening about 830. Only 2 others parties seated. We were Seated, learned they didn't offer beer with meals, an inconvenience but not the end of the world. Ordered fish fajitas, which arrived basically as a burrito, charred a bit too much outside...but the bulk of the burrito was overloaded with spice, oil and mushy fish. I ate... More
