Mexican seafood!

Very good mexican style seafood. Whatever you order it's going to be very good. One of the only few places in Bakersfield that accomodate big groups in one table. Good food is guaranteed!

We had eaten at La Costa Mariscos for years at their previous location, it was one of our favorites. We were really looking forward to their move since it's much larger and the parking is better. One meal was lunchtime and the second was for dinner, we haven't been back since. The food is still excellent however the service is... More

Had lunch and dinner here on two separate occasions. The LaCosta has really turned over a new leaf. GreT ambiance on multiple levels to enjoy real good Mexican food. Seafood specialties are special. Attentiveness of staff is real good. You almost get run over by the staff just trying to move through the restaurant. Food served quickly, not rushed ,... More

La Costa is a solid joint. I haven't been since they moved to the Ice House. I hope they make it in that location, as almost nothing else has. I have spoken to so many people who talk about this place like it's a secret that only they know about it. We all know about La Costa people! I've heard... More

I do not ever go to Mexican Food Restaurants since I cook Mexican at home. I usually end up saying we could of done it better at home. However, at La Costa that was not the case. We had a Mar y Tierra Parrillada and the whole platter was delicious. We loved all of the food, particularly the seafood, shrimp... More

We had fish tacos, albondigas, whole fried snapper, tamale and chicken and beef tacos. All super good and again, generous portions at a reasonable price. We'll def come again when driving... More

My favorite Mexican restaurant! I loved them when they were a tiny little place on 21st Street but their new home at the old Ice House is outstanding. Lots of unique ambiance and the food is outstanding. Make sure and check out the new bar, they make a mean Cadillac Margarita and the bartender told me about another drink that... More
