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. If you miss Omar's you have missed out on a great eating experience. Plus Omar is a great fellow to meet. Local food prepared by... More

We each had a different kind of fish- all were quite good. We didn't know when we sat down, but you can bring your own beer or wine, etc. as they only serve soda and water at the restaurant. There is a huge market across the street. We stopped here because it smelled so good, and were not disappointed. I... More

We went to Omar's on recommendation from our shuttle driver. My husband had the conch (it's so yummy) and was more than satisfied. The outside setting was fun because the kids could play, and in fact played with Omar's granddaughter Evelyn, while we lingered over Belekin's in the hot sun.

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
