The ribs, the steak, the chicken, the veggies; all mouthwatering to look at, to smell and especially to eat! Don't miss El Lagarto; this was our 5th trip to CR and 4th to Samara and we always look forward to eating here.
We heard and read great things about this restaurant. The ribs were highly recommended. The first visit to El Legarto we were very disappointed with the quality of the food, the ribs were mediocre at best. We tried a second visit and were disappointed again....We found the food mediocre and overpriced. The service was friendly. We will not return.More
3 New York Strips and grilled pork all cooked to perfection. Perfect margaritas and passion fruit mojitos. Sunset over the Pacific from corner table with perfect view. Couldn't ask for anything better. Thanks to all the staff that made it happen.
Authentic restaurant, pleasant staff. The most expensive meal we have had on our 2 week holiday. My partner and I both had ribs and were a little disappointed to find that they mainly consisted of fat and bone. Maybe just a bad night as the...restaurant was highly recommended.More
Tucked away slightly from the beach, this place is a real gem. Flame grilled meats and fish - the jumbo prawns were especially well seasoned. Perfectly cooked potatoes are a simple yet great side dish with oozes of garlic butter. Prices are on the high...side but the meal will be overall enjoyable.More
Decided to try El Lagarto on one of our last nights in town. Well worth the stop. The grilled jumbo shrimp were well seasoned and nicely grilled. The plate held 8 large shrimp and sides of grilled tomato and baked potatoe. The baby back ribs...had a nice dry rub and smokey flavor from the grill. Sides were the same as with the shrimp. Food was very good overall. One disappointment with the evening, especially at a higher priced place, was interruptions from street vendors.More
