I loved the restaurant and the cazuela de pescado. The taste was simply amazing. The restaurant is very elegant and pricey, but I think it is perfect for a special celebration.

We went to La Casa Del Marisco for an early dinner on a Saturday night. We did not have a reservation but it turns out we didn't need one, there were only six tables occupied, including ours. The atmosphere contained varied artwork and large windows exposing the surrounding tropical foliage. The bread was warm and welcomed as we arrived famished.... More

I have eaten here many times mainly because of their excellent grilled octopus. However this place has priced itself now so ridiculous I won't come back. Portions are smaller and prices are higher. Example: shrimp cocktail, 3 shrimp cut into micro pieces for $18,75 Grilled octopus now a smaller portion $19.00 Cheapest salad on the menu is $18.00 I did... More

After checking into our hotel, wanted someplace nearby with good seafood. Had the octopus and calamari starters, was enough to keep us going until dinner. I was particularly happy with the calamari -- whole bodies cooked in garlic.

Not impressive, but honest seafood in town. Very extensive menu, nice wine list, friendly service, the price and value on par and most important: very fresh seafood. Recommended.

We visited on a Sunday with a group of 5 people. Service was slow and inconsistent. Appetizers got to the table before the drinks. We ordered Lobster and it was actually still attached to the shell something surprising for a fine dinning restaurant. Food was good but not great. We ordered the four Leche dessert and the server had to... More
