We had our anniversary dinner at this place with our daughter and her boyfriend. It is a wonderful Mexican restaurant that features a lot of seafood dishes that are delightfully prepare. I had a shrimp dish that came in a sauce with a lot of garlic and covered with some melted cheese. My wife has the Siete de Mares soup... More

I joined my daughter for lunch here. It's in the old Ice House on N. Chester Ave. It's seen a lot of businesses come and go, but I suspect this restaurant will be there for awhile. It's that good! We ordered peach margaritas ($7.00), a Burrito Chile Verde ($10.95) and a Chile Verde ($13.95). We followed it up with a... More

New location is awesome. Haven't been here since the moved from the tiny building on 21st street. Services was fast and staff was friendly. If you like chunky salsa, then you'll love theirs.

It was my first time ever going to La Costa Mariscos and I was very pleased with their food. I can't wait to explore their culinary menu in further. Also, I enjoyed their new home is at The Ice House! I do have a con: restrooms are not baby friendly. There isn't a Baby changing station in their restrooms, so... More

I grew up in Bakersfield and lived in SoCal for many years, so I've honed my love for Mexican food. Courtesy of my husband's career, I've lived in many places across the country and have had the privilege of eating in some pretty nice places, so I've also honed my expectations for good service. I now live on the east... More

The BEST Mexican Sea Food Restaurant in Bakersfield!!! The food is excellent with true Mexican authentic taste. The ambiance is PERFECT!! I truly enjoy going makes me feel as if I'm on vacation, while still here in town. The Bar is excellent with the best drinks in town. I recommend all local and travelers to try it.

La Costa has the best Mexican seafood in Bakersfield. End of story. The new location offers larger space but the same quaint style that made it a beacon for Bakersfield eaters. They even kept the door from the original restaurant. The service is prompt and the food is delicious. Stop reading this review and go to the restaurant.

This is a happening place! Great food and great selection. Huge bar area with great margaritas. Had to wait quite a while for a table.....but took this as a good sign! Will definitely return on our next visit to Bakersfield!
