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!

We ordered the typical fish and it was excellent. The setting is very basic but has a view of the beach. Don't expect anything fancy and you will enjoy the food.

Just returned from a 2 week vacation and both my son and husband enjoyed the Casado con Pescado served from this place. My son loved it so much that he would only eat the same dish from this place and ate there at least 8 times during our stay. There was so much food that my husband usually at the... More

We love this little place with a view of the beach. The Casado con Pescado, with rice, frijoles, plantains, a pickled salad and the hottest served fish in the world is just awesome. This was our 2nd trip to the area and the 1st place we returned to for what was and remains our favorite meal while in Playas de... More

The place is right on the beach. We ate lunch here three times. We stayed in Coco for a month so this was not a stretch. The Tico fish lunch was good. But I noticed the fish portions getting smaller each time.

For typical Costa Rican food, try the 'casado con pescado' for the yummiest fried fish I've ever had. It's tiny little soda (which means cafe) right across from the main beach in Coco. There's nothing to the restaurant, just a few little tables. But don't let that deter you! The kitchen is clean and the food is great!!

I had dinner at La Teresita on a recent dive trip in the area. The food was good and the location right on the beach can't be beat. i did go at night and moved from the porch to the inside because of the mosquitoes. I had casados with the bistec de res (beef filet) and it was as good... More

Stumbled onto this restaurant and we were very pleased with our breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. Watched the ocean as we ate our breakfast. The Mahi Mahi with Pinto and rice was very good. Fair price, nice portions. We would recommend!
