Loved Omar's!! Had dinner here. Every meal is delicious and the flavors are perfect. Its a BYOB restaurant, but the grocery store right across the street has many choices of Beer, Wine and Liquor....

Down home Belizean fare. Moderate prices. Village atmosphere. You can buy beer to drink across the street at the market. Stewed chicken, rice and beans number one.

Okay food as far as flavor and quality but my fish had a lot of bones in it and the conch in the Ceviche was a bit rubbery. Wouldn't repeat.
