We went fishing one morning and bartered for 2 conch and 2 fish which we took to the restaurant and they cooked right there for us fresh. It did take some time (45-1hr) for the food to get there but we brought whole fish and conch so that probably takes some time to cook.. it was reasonably priced and you... More

It was recommended for dinner by our resort when we were looking for something local. You pick your seafood and sauce and off you go. And it's byob so grabbed a bottle of wine at the supermarket across the street. We had creole lobster and garlic butter crab claws which were both amazing. Oh and the brownies were delicious too!

Omar's was recommended to us by a travel book and the book was spot on! This was one the best meals in our 10 day trip. The food was fresh and the seafood was cooked to perfection. In fact, I would give up my American hamburgers if they would have the same food available in the states. The prices were... More

This place had the freshest tastiest seafood, but ALL of their food was just awesome. They caught a fresh king fish that day and served it---was so delicious with their creole sauce. Everything in our meal was clearly fresh and very tasty. Service was outstanding too!! Lastly, they don't serve alcohol but works out fine cause they let us bring... More

We have been eating at Omar's for some years, both in the current restaurant and when he was on the sidewalk. We have always had good food - but probably the best this visit. Creole Crab was absolutely delicious

Very good Creole style food. Seems to have snook a lot of the time and they do a nice job. Closed on Fridays.

We only visited Omar's once on our trip, but the food was great! It was a cute restaurant with fresh food. If we would have gone earlier in our trip we would have definitely been back for more.

I should focus on the food... but what I'd love to talk more about is the owner and how awesome he is. He is very proud of his friends and family and the way I witnessed him treat everyone, especially the kids, you could write a book about. Now onto the food! Everything served... he catches. That makes quality top... More
