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

I ate at La Casita del Pescado several times. It's nice because it's right on the beach. The first time I was there, the food was good, the drinks were okay, the service was okay. The second time I was there, the food was pretty gross, I didn't have a drink, and the service was okay. Now when I say... More

To be honest, it looked a bit like a classic tourist trap. The food turned out to be fantastic, the sea bass one of the best we had in Costa Rica. Were greeted warmly with nice conversation. Located directly on the beach, suppose a great location during sunset.

Over two different trips to Costa Rica, we have come to this tiny beach front restaurant 3 times. Last week we had a lovely lunch on the beach, under a shade canopy, watching the surf roll towards us. My seafood soup was excellent! The rest of our group was very happy with their seafood choices as well. I thought the... More

Is there anything better than swimming in the warm waters of the ocean the walking up to a place on the beach to have a bowl of ceviche and a beer overlooking the waves? Fish so fresh we could taste the sea. No shirt, no shoes, no problem. Loved it!
