We stopped here on our way home from a day on the beach at Playa Conchal. We had an order of sea bass ceviche along with some beer, chips & bean dip. Everything was great! Located on both sides of the dirt road leading to Conchal, we chose to sit at a table on the inland side to avoid the... More

Loved the location of La Casita del Pescado as it’s right on Brasilito beach where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset. Luiz our waiter was very pleasant, helpful and efficient. We loved their mixed seafood Ceviche and felt it was the best out of all the restaurants we had tried in Brasilito. We were a little disappointed with the coconut... More

This small restaurant has a fantastic location, with outdoor seating in front of the beach. The service was great and the environment nice and relaxed. The food was good, but not memorable. Come for the view.

I ordered mahi mahi. It was a small portion made up of small pieces of fish, served in a sauce. The menu described it as a filet. On the positive side, you can eat at tables directly on the beach. Choose to be there at sunset.

Place is ok. Food is hit and miss but ceviche is really good. Service is abysmal. Our waitress left during our meal. No one ever came to check on us or take another drink order. Fed up asked for the check. After 15 min asked again...and again. Finally walked into the kitchen and said we needed a check or wouldn't... More

This place is a little shack literally on the beach. The ceviche was excellent as was the snapper and coconut shrimp. Great piña coladas as well. A great lunch spot close to Playa Conchal.

we came here for dinner. Started well, but then we got pestered by stray dogs. They kept on coming near our table. It is fairly inexpensive, and right on the beach, but you migt be better off elsewhere
