For a delicious slice of Belizean fare + a local vibe, dine at Omar's. If their delicious housemade Guava jam with a honey like consistency is in season + available for purchase, buy as much as will fit in your suitcase. Any of their fish...More

The food was very fresh and the customer service was good. I tried a pasta with shrimp (can't remember the name). But it was absolutely delicious. The strawberry cheesecake was also yummy!

This restaurant was recommended to us. Two of our dinners were good, two were overcooked. Not particularly clean. I would not go out of our way to try this restaurant.

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