Fish for breakfast

Really good authentic food at a reasonable price. Had fried sea bass along with gallo pinto and a nice cup of coffee, all within view of the beach. Service was very friendly and accommodating

What more can one ask for? Great food, excellent service and good prices. We had mahi mahi and it was excellent. One couple came in off beach and wanted to dine outside. Two waiters picked up an inside table and brought it outside for the customer. Great p rices

Popped in for an early eve snack. Had ceviche which was yummy. Much closer to what we are accustomed too. Very small, good service, no license, not the cleanest or prettiest place. One of the oldest restaurants on the strip and I think one of the most authentic.

A great spot to sit outside or in. Good selection and very reasonable prices. We were very happy with our meals and the portions are generous. They seem to stay open fairly late which is nice if you don't feel like eating early. Pleasant staff and good service are a plus. Recommended.

Fish casado's are excellent here. The fish is slightly breaded and very tasty along with the entire platter. The beer goes down really easy while you eat and watch activities by the beachside.

I have eaten here about 5 times now. The local food is good and reasonably priced. They serve a good selection of breakfast and lunch items. It is a small place, but I always eat at thier outside tables where there seems to be more seating. The utensils, plates and glasses are clean. The owner and staff are very nice... More

You want Costa Rican food? Come here! There aren't many places in town to find the authentic Casado, but Soda La Teresita has it! Friendly service, reasonable prices, delcious food. Perfect spot!

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
