We walked here from The Pearl for dinner during our recent vacation. It is brightly colored and a lively place to eat dinner. There were a few large parties, one of which had a lot of children. Our waitress asked us if we wanted to move due to the noise, we told her we were fine. Our chips and salsa... More

I had dined here once before during a rain storm. We were one of only a few occupied tables and I remembered an enjoyable meal. Not so much on this visit. We had to wait an uncomfortable amount of time for a server (both to order and to pay). Food was good, but the atmosphere was so loud and busy.... More

The best thing I had here was the chips and guac! Very large and typical Mexican restaurant, but it did the trick!

Being from Texas, raised in SA no less, I have had a lot of good Tex-Mex in my life. We have put off trying La Cocina for some time now, not sure why after eating there. The restaurant was not too crowded. It was a Tuesday nite in the off season. We decided to eat at the bar. They do... More

We had dinner last week during fall break. We had the tacos and enchiladas; the brisket was recommended. It was excellent. The Top Shelf Margarita and the Sangria was exceptional. The dinner and appetizers were served very promptly and the staff seemed to know what we wanted before we even asked. We will return.

It was refreshing eating Mexican and not having to read a book to make my selection. The food quality was good and the service was too. This is a good option when you are having trouble making a decision. I wouldn't call it a destination restaurant but it is worth puttin into the rotation on longer stays.

Good service, food and delicious margaritas. I was hoping to enjoy a lot of great meals in the Seacrest/Rosemary Beach area but was disappointed with either the service or the food at every restaurant we tried but this one!

We have visited La Cocina each of the five years we have come to the Seacrest/Rosemary Beach area. We enjoy the family friendly atmosphere and terrific service. Wine pours are generous and margaritas are fresh and tasty. Tonight I had the Ensalada La Cocina with grilled shrimp, and it was fresh and delicious. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal,...
