Convenient Mexican and Margaritas at Seacrest Beach

The margaritas are quite tasty at this cute mexican grill in Seacrest Beach. We were staying 2 floors directly above and it was so convenient. Never did hear rowdy noise in the evening either. The service was quick and the food was standard fare.

Everything about LaCocina was great - We walked in around 5:15, we were seated immediately. We were quickly given chips & salsa - both tasted homemade. Matt - our waiter was spot-on! He took our order without writing anything down - and it was brought out exactly as we ordered. We had Southern Senorita (watermelon margqueritas) that were delicious! Hubby... More

Went for dinner on Monday since other Rosemary Beach restaurants were closed. As Texans, we expected disappointment, but were pleasantly surprised. No wait for our group of 7, decent chips & salsa, recommend the brisket enchiladas. Kids also liked the Tex-Mex kids' plates.

We walked from High Pointe resort across the street and got in right at 5:00 PM as they opened. This is a well frequented restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

La Cocina is the only game in town and paired with their excellent, prompt service I can see why this place is popular. It is good for families with kids but if you are trying to find an authentic Mexican meal this is not the place for it. We ordered the nachos which were good. The fajitas did not arrive... More

Besides the chips and salsa the food wasn't great. It's a wonderful location and fun atmosphere. Certainly good enough to take your family, and it accommodated large groups well.

Got right to a table at 6:00 on Saturday night. Matt was our server, and he met our every want and need. The guac and queso dips were fresh and delicious. Daughter had brisket nachos - the brisket was juicy, tender, and tasty. Wife had lobster quesadilla with fruit salsa - nice chunks of lobster with tasty sauce on top.... More

Awesome place to eat with kids! Chips, salsa, and service are great! Our server HECTOR made our experience fun & memorable! The carnitas tacos were also very good. Large servings and plenty for kids to choose from. Most everything on the menu can be prepared Gluten Free. Great overall experience!
