Pretty impressive

Just came back from there and I must say that was one awesome meal. We had house special for 2 with selection of grilled meats of all kinds. That in itself was great but we also got massive bowl of salad and the platter full of extras/dips. All in all a very satisfying culinary experience topped up... read more

Located right on the main road so it was great to watch the night life / car traffic. The shakes (with mint) are fantastic. We ordered a couple of hamburgers and it was not fully cooked. I know some people like it this way but we not as much. We let the servers know and they quickly replaced the meal... More

On a warm day in town we decided to stop by for some empanadas and some wood grilled pizza, salad etc. The food was sooo good as were our cocktails. It was our last day in Santa Teresa and we were sad we couldn't come back for dinner - but there is always next time.

I usually try not to write reviews unless I've been to a place numerous times. Now, on my fifth visit to this BBQ joint, I feel its time. First, the good news. The grilled meats are fantastic. Baby-back ribs and chicken breast were amazing. Love the salsas they bring with bread, service wasn't bad although the waitresses do seem like... More

Casa Del Mar is the best restaurant in Santa Teresa. So delicious! The wood fire grilled meat is out-of-this-world. Amazing flavor and so many options to choose from. My husband and I shared the Full Parrillada, 14,000 colognes (for 2 people) and it was so much meat we couldn't finish it. The salad was off the charts amazing as well.... More

Casa del Mar was for us like a light at the end of the tunnel, since in Santa Teresa a lot of the restaurants close very early (between 7 and 8 pm) . Food was amazing and cocktails were really good . Service maybe was not too fast but the place was actually packed . Really good value !!

If you're in the mood for some BBQ/grilled food check this place out. The owners, Lucila and Andres, are great! This place always seems to have people so don't be surprised if there's a wait, but it's certainly worth it. Will be atop my list on my next visit.

I almost cried when I realised I couldn't eat all my Lomita Surprise dish. It was literally the best food I've eaten in a really long time.

Sit at the bar, order an empanada (tocineta/bacon and caprese are my favs), drink a fresca while you wait, then dive into a fried cheesy ball of heaven and be happy. Life is good!
