We went to La Cocina just 2 days before they closed for the season. Everything tasted a little off, like maybe they were cleaning out the freezers. The guacamole had a powdery taste to it, the tacos were just so so ad my daughter barely ate the nachos. I've always felt that this restaurant was lesser quality than the other... More

As 30-A begins to cater more and more to high-end travelers, La Cocina is still a great value and you see a lot of families choosing it. Thanksgiving week was PACKED. It's not the best Mexican food ever, but it's great beach dining and the staff is top-notch. Try the green salsa -- you have to ask for it special.

We've visited before and La Cocina is consistently delicious. Our waitress let us know our margaritas were on happy hour special (this is such a nice touch) so we took advantage of the special price and great taste and ordered a few. The salsa is fresh and not overly spicy just perfectly flavored and the chips are warm, thin and... More

My husband and I took a long weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary near Panama City Beach and visited La Cocina for dinner based on a friend's recommendation. We are so glad we did! To start, we tried the guacamole, which was fresh, cool, and seasoned perfectly, and the La Bamba Queso dip, which is queso with beef &... More

Happy hour margaritas and 30% off appetizers lured our ladies group of 5 in on a Saturday evening. Although a couple of the ladies found the queso to be a bit spicy, the rest of us liked it so the server had a milder version made for those two. The trio appetizer was very good. Atmosphere was typical of a... More

As you know, this was fall break and some eateries were read, but this one was not. Service was slow, food was cold, lines were long.

Was excited to give La Cocina a try after reading the reviews here. The restaurant was crowded even on a Wednesday in October. We noticed several large parties of six or more squeezed into booths or around tables too small for them. It was loud in the dining room and conversation was difficult. Our waitress was efficient but never smiled... More

This place has a very nice atmosphere. Family friendly and good chips and salsa. The beer is ice cold and the margaritas are pretty good. The food decent but nothing to write home about. It's worth a visit.
