First of all I hate to write this bad review, because the food tasted great and the people there were very nice. Anyway me and my partner both chose a fish after we arrived. 30 minutes later we received the grilled fish with garlic, herbs, grilled vegetables and french fries. After we started eating lazlo came to our table and... More

Quaint, streetside setting. Personable owner (Lazlo) and son (waiter/bartender). The selections are limited but the fish is fresh and delicious. Best french fries I've ever had, and I've had a lot. If you like fresh caught fish, GO.

We went w my boyfriend to Lazlo's first night we were in Pto. Viejo, and we saw a honest genuine menu, just seabass fish vegetables and chips on the side and we were totally for it. Not only the food was exquisite but the great company of the man on duty of the bar, Robbie and the Chefs Lazlo and... More

The fresh sea bass was delicious. Robby was very entertaining as I was sitting up at the bar chatting with him while he made some amazing looking cocktails. I love the simplicity of their lack of menu. They have fresh fish, maybe a couple of options of type of fish depending on the day, and it comes with grilled veggies... More

Stopped in for a fish dinner and it did not disappoint! Only had two choices on the menu and they were both delicious. Probably the best meal I had while I was there. The owner and his son were pretty entertaining to listen to, well.

Came to eat here twice as it was so good the first time. As many wrote already - the place is simple, it is not a fancy restaurant with well dressed waiters. What the place has is BEST FISH IN TOWN :) Maybe best fish in the world. It tastes so fresh and tasty, amazing. Robbie also offered us some... More

We have been in Costa Rica 5 months and Lazlo's may have been our finest meal yet. The fresh grilled snapper was perfectly prepared with olive oil and garlic and the side vegetables were abundant and delicious. The Dad catches the fish while the son acts as front-end manager and waiter. We had been told their tuna was delicious but... More

We met Robbie (Lazlo´s son) after scuba diving one afternoon. He mentioned his restaurant and we went for dinner. Menu is: catch of the day, fries and grilled veg. Delicious plus he treated us with his home made cocktails. Bit of Hungarian family going on and that made it all the better :)
