Small place in front of the sea, with very good local food. We tried the pargo frito entero (whole red snapper) and it was very fresh. My friend tried arroz con mariscos (seafood rice) and he liked it very much. Laid back and casual, it is good value for money

I stopped in for lunch while visiting Coco Beach. I wanted some authentic Costa Rican food. It was absolutely delicious. The service was good and fast, the food was hot and yummy. I want to go back to try another dish.

Great place to come for food in Playa del Coco. Good views of the water and nice Costa Rican food. They have a few western dishes if you fancy it but we stuck to the casado and ceviche.

After a long drive back to coco from Monteverde me and my fiancé were hungry. We stopped at la teresita for lunch and were greeted readily by the owner. Real good "home cooked" Costa Rican food. Nothing special but food was good.

Stayed for only 4 days, but came here twice! We went in slightly early during breakfast time, but oddly we did not want breakfast food, we wanted what was on their lunch menu. The owner guy was very friendly and said anything we want, and we asked if we could do take out so that we can eat at the... More

Traveled to Playa Coco Solo....arrived here later in the evening. Felt completely safe. The owner greeted me with a warm welcome. Recommended an awesome Giso plate..that was to die for. Though it was scorching hot and I had to swat flies away....the food..the experience was not shy of a memory to last a lifetime. I've never encountered such humbling people... More
