“Best lobster in great atmosphere at Costa Blanca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

First a correction: the restaurant is in Farallon and the beach there is called Costa Blanca. Playa Blanca is the next resort about 3 miles away. You just take the exit of the Panamerican Highway to drive to the Decameron hotel. You pass all hotel buildings and enter Farallon. The restaurant will be on your right side at the begin of the village.
It is owned by George (Switzerland) and the ever so friendly Luz (Panama). George works on the restaurant and bar floor, Luz is the master in the kitchen.
Highly recommend the lobster specials at $30. You get a shrimp cocktail, a salad and big platter with lobster, along with your choice of side dish and then a dessert and coffee. Great deal! The food is just excellent. I also recommend the Two Oceans Sauvignon Blanc to go with it. The atmosphere is very nice. Luz pays a lot of attention to decoration. Special days like Christmas, Valentine's day, etc. are reasons for an even nicer decoration. On some weekend nights you can also enjoy the children from the nearby village to perform traditional dances in beautiful outfits. La Fogata is your place for that special dinner! Reservation highly recommended. One of my favorite restaurants in the whole of the country.

“The best lobster and champagne dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

We had the best dinner there and it was simply 3 mins walk from our hotel. The experience was amazing! We had lobster and champagne with our friends. My husband is from the Maritimes in Canada and therefore won't let us eat lobster in too many places but here at La Fogata, the food was spectacular and we were spoiled with excellent food and drink. Also the food was well priced. We would certainly go back to the hotel and would make sure we ate at La Fogata again. No doubt about it. I suggest everyone who stays there go to the restaurant. Say hi to Jurg and his lovely wife for us. Jenn and Mike from Toronto.
