My wife and I revisited La Costa Mariscos again on our latest visit to Bakersfield! It is still wonderful, friendly and delicious!! They are moving a bit north, next to the Bakersfield Historical Museum complex on Chester Ave, probably the last week in July. They will be closed for that week, according to the Owner's family. The facility will be... More

Used the trip advisor app to find the best restaurant close to us. Service was awesome. We were seated quickly, greeted promptly, and served an awesome dinner. No hard liquor license but heard they are moving soon. Then they will have AC and better drinks.

Read the reviews, had to try it, wow! Happy hour margaritas were fantastic! We ordered fajitas (steak), and they were as good as I've ever had! Another round of margaritas! Staff were very friendly, food came quick. Prices reasonable. There is a reason this place is number one!

I have been to La Costa many times. It is by far the best Mexican restaurant in Bakersfield. It specializes in coastal cuisine from the Pacific coast of Mexico. Anything you order is wonderful but I would recommend the Shrimp "a la diabla" - a little on the hot side but worth it. The Shrimp "al ajo" are in garlic... More

we went for lunch and without a doubt, the best white fish with butter and margaritas in town. The menu has a lot to choose from. we also had the ceviche and it was incredible! Going back, friends have told me to try the appetizer plate.

Spending the night in Bakersfield on our way to Yosemite, we trusted Trip Advisor for dinner and we're very glad we did! Early on Saturday evening we were seated right away, and a server brought chips and delicious salsa while we reviewed the extensive menu. My husband had the shrimp and cheese quesadilla which had chunks of shrimp with thick... More

We saw all the great reviews on Trip Advisor about this restaurants so put the address in the GPS and stopped in for lunch. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but when you step inside it is full of happy people and friendly staff. The menu is very well priced and generous in portion sizes. We ordered the... More
