I just got back from Mal Pais and traveled with four friends to this area. We all loved this restaurant! It was a recommendation from our hotel and we are so glad they made the suggestion. When we arrived, we were shown the daily specials and selections. Everything selection looked amazing. We had great lora and shrimp apps and all had great fish selections for dinners. We had wanted an authentic CR experience and we got it. Great, friendly service... great, fresh seafood selection... and awesome atmosphere. And the margaritas were so good!
The restaurant was packed with locals, visitors and ex-pats, which is a great sign that they have done a good job mastering the local cuisine. A couple brought in some of their fresh caught fish and they incorporated it into the couple's dinner. They gave them a discount for providing the fish, but I thought it was awesome they were able to get their fish cooked.
We all had a great time and will definitely return next time we are in Mal Pais.
