Do yourself a favor and eat here. We stopped by our first night in Santa Teresa because the place had a nice crowd and the aroma was tempting. We ended up eating here 3 of our 10 nights in town. We started with empanadas (every time) then shared a main dish. The BBQ was outstanding the pizza... read more

Right on the main drag through Santa Teresa, this restaurant features meat and chicken "a la parrillada". Our entrees were the chicken salad, featuring strips of chicken breast grilled that way, and what was called pork loin on the English side of the menu, served with roasted potatoes, a side salad, and 4 small dishes of different salsas. The salad... More

Having recently traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina -- I feel confident in saying this steakhouse (despite the somewhat misleading name) could stand its ground -- and was probably better than most we tried in Argentina. Our family with 3 kids (ages 8, 12, and 13) all voted this one of our top choices for the week we spent in Santa... More

We were a group of 7 friends visiting this place on New Years Eve for dinner because as we were driving by, the place looked like it was bumping. The menu was average, I would say, definitely not for people with certain food preferences. If you are a vegetarian, do not visit here :) The service was just poor. The... More

We had the meat platter and it was all delicious. awesome barbecue. the pizza was good too. While certainly more expensive that our usual casado dinners, it was a welcomed break with lots of flavor. This place was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint.

Our group of 15 was at Casa Del Mar for dinner. It was dinner time and quite busy. Our group split up to be at 3 different tables. My husband and I were the first to order our food. Our friends table ordered after us and got their food first. After asking the waitress 2 times, she assured us each... More

it's not only the food that's good in this restaurant. It's very well located and it has one of the best view in Santa Teresa (please don't miss the sunset!) but also the staff who's very nice and friendly. We didn't try the meat, but the fish and it was absolutely delicious! muchas gracias!

I don't often eat meat but when I do I want to go to a place like Casa del Mar. I love steaks cooked on the Spanish style, wood fired grill and more importantly The fact that the meat they serve is all natural, from grass fed cows. The service is efficient and super friendly and for a steakhouse we... More
