Great!!

May 19,2015. I have eaten fish all over the world and this is as good as it gets unless you prefer fish sticks. Hard to find but worth it.

We chose the restaurant because of the very good recommendations. It was absolutely DELICIOUS although you could choose between red snapper and red snapper. The dishes are huge and very tasty. On top of that Lazlo joined us for a long time and we had a great conversation. The only downside: the son is kind of weird and very into... More

We visited Lazlo's Fresh Catch of the day on May 10, 2015. The fresh red snapper was one of the best I have eating in a long time, very juicy so that I even eat the head. My Family ordered the sea bass and was cooked to perfection. The owner sat down with us for a few minutes and was... More

Food was good fresh red snapper and kingfish. Downside was the idiot son who was rude and clearly needs to learn some respect for customers and his father.

The food at Lazlo's is amazing. The owner and his son are very friendly and make you feel welcome in every way. Eating at Lazlo's is like eating at a friends house. The fish is so fresh and the fries are delicious too. Prices are very reasonable for the quantity and quality of food you get. The restaurant is not... More

I asked for the best place to eat fish in Puerto Viejo, a seaside village on the Carribean coast, so I already had an expectation of freshly caught. What I got FAR EXCEEDED anything I could have dreamed of! I asked for the tuna, slightly seared, raw on the inside. I was blown away by what arrived. A huge platter... More

Perfectly cooked fish caught fresh that day! What more could you ask for? The wasabi sauce on top was a great way to enhance the flavor of the tuna we had that day. Paired with grilled vegetables and yummy homemade fries, this meal was a real treat!

Fresh grilled tuna steak, caught that day. Thick-cut homemade fries with house wasabi mayo and grilled vegetables. A simple, deliciously prepared meal. This place is a treasure - a bit difficult to find, with no sign and just a few tables, a bar and an open kitchen in a cantina-like atmosphere, but if you're looking for some tasty, locally caught...

Puerto Viejo's so called best seafood restaurant is an okay over- priced dinning place for the tourist trade. The bartender and owners son is quite a character whom I enjoyed watching making a fool of himself. When he's not profanely insulting customers into buying cocktails he is either yelling at his staff or trying to hit on women way out... More
