They were not quite open but they let us in anyway, serving the best garlic butter shrimp I've ever had. It's BYOB, so we ran across the street for cold beers at the grocery store. The owner's kids were the same age as ours so...More

We had barracuda steaks which were ok but offered no positive surprises. Service is not very professional. They do not serve any alcohol, you have to cross the street to buy it from supermarket which is not big issue. But they should have bottled water!...More

This tradional eatery offers great Caribbean seafood, often featuring what Omar has caught that day. I had barracuda steak in Caribbean sauce—spiced perfectly.You can buy wine and beer across the street and bring it in.

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.

Would not recommend at all! Specialize in Creole food but it was not done well, and they do not serve wine/beer/liquor.

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.

I'm sure they don't. But the taxis are located about 100 feet away from the restaurant.
