“Best Mexican and Peruvian food in Coos Bay - North Bend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

We love this place! The food is excellent and authentic. The portions are generous. The service is super. If lucky, maybe you can get owner Rafael to sing for you. Or, ask him for his YouTube link.

“Worst meal in a long time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This was the first time we've had to wait over an hour for dinner at a Mexican restaurant, even at some that were much busier than La Costa was that night. The draw was the offer of some Peruvian dishes, so we chose one of those, a fire-roasted chicken quarter. It was so dry that even the tiny cup of green salsa (which was nicely tangy and devoid of the dreaded cilantro) could not rescue. The choice of "salad" with the chicken meant a pile of shredded lettuce and a few diced tomatoes, no dressing at all, so it was not much help either. The meat in the carne asada we also ordered was extremely tasty but couldn't have been more than a few ounces; and the beans and rice that filled that platter were totally tasteless. The best things about the meal were the fries (Peruvian fries--who knew???) with the chicken and the waiter who tried so hard to keep us comfortable through the long time we waited for these two simple dishes, refreshing our basket of tortilla chips and dish of salsa, filling our water glasses, and offering us more sangria. We have no idea what the kitchen was up to all this time, but we wish they had been as diligent as our waiter. We'd go back to another restaurant if he was working there, but we will not return to La Costa.

“The singing waiter is great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

And the Peruvian food is excellent. Very reasonable prices and friendly service. Good selection of beers. This place serves traditional Mexican food, but get the Peruvian food if you want something different: fresh and delicious!
