We went here by luck, just by the look of the place. Very warm and cosy. I had a fantastic vegetarian meal and my friends went for a delicious cheesburger. Food was amazing and the same for the cocktails. Go eat here! Really. And have a cocktail, or 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,...

This place is good, we had pizza, it was a tad over cooked but still yummy but the best thing was the chicken salad- delicious. Nice atmosphere, really got with the pizza ovens and good service.

The locals all agree: Casa Del Mar has the best Empanadas in town. Made fresh every day, they have six different kinds: roquefort, spinach & cheese, carne, ham and cheese, sweet corn, caprese. Our favorites were the caprese and the carne. Try all six if you can! The smoothies were also delicious and are refreshing after having all of that... More

This place was some of the best empanadas we have ever had. So many variations such as Corn, Spinach & Cheese, Blue Cheese, Caprese, Beef, and Bacon. They were so good that our group continually returned throughout the week. A ton of vegetarian options was also a plus as well. And lastly, the husband and wife owners were incredibly friendly.

Spent 10 days in Costa Rica last November and absolutely loved it. Casa del Mar's grilled pizzas and empanadas were the best food I had by far. The place is located just steps away from the beach and lovely rustic decorated,creating a very cosy ambience. All staff was incredibly friendly,Lucila,Ana,andres,cesar,pablito,etc were always smiling and very helpful. Even the baby girl... More

We first visited Casa del Mar two years ago when we got married in Costa Rica and have been looking forward to coming back since then! We just returned from another trip to Santa Teresa and this was our very first dinner stop. Happily, it wow'd us just as much as the first time! Between the food and the owners/hosts... More
