Ate here three times - two dinners, one lunch. Staff are pleasant and prompt. Food is fresh, abundant, and tasty - especially the grilled mahi mahi dinner. Reasonable prices, considering that food in CR is expensive everywhere. Looks out on the beach for daytime view. Would definitely go again.

We came across some ex pats who recommended La Teresita. Conveniently spotted across the road from the beach and next to the soccer pitch it's easy to find. It's family run and the son comes out with drinks. My wife ordered the Pineapple shake and said they only thing missing was the rum (so bring your own) and we both... More

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent value. Family run soda, the son is the waiter. He had excellent english, so it was easy to explain that we were vegan. We had the traditional black beans, rice, plantains and potatoes with a slaw salad with a vinaigrette. About $36 for four incl a beer and 2 fresh juices. We will return.

Wow. Always nice to drop into a place and be pleasantly surprised. If the local Tico's are eating there, you know it has to be good. And it is! Excellent dishes. Great selection. Family-owned atmosphere. Make you feel like your family. Met Jesus and had a great visit. Went back a second time and enjoyed it even more. A couple... More

We had the typical Costa Rican dish with sea bass. The fish was delicious but instead of the usual vegetables ( choyote etc) we were given soggy pasta shells. You can order beer though. The owner/server came three or four times during the meal to promote his fishing trips. The flies were pretty bad at lunch hour too. .

you want to eat like the locals with the locals then you need to come here ,right on the corner of street,close to beach,across the street from the park plenty of parking and a choice of eating in or outside,plenty of fresh air blowing,plates are huge for less money,but it is a soda so no beers or alcohol is served.

Love the ceviche here. Some of the best i've had in Costa Rica. Great location by the beach. Expect to spend about $30-35 (usd) for two people.

The owner of this who's also your server is very nice, but food is pricey and not really tasty, rice and beans were rock hard, chicken was ok but no flavor, veggies looked like they been out for a while, had the watermelon juice wich was a little water down, after lunch i found myself at subway down the street!
