FOOD: Occasionally in a destination community like Costa Rica’s Playa Carmen, you come across some truly excellent seafood. And then there’s PRODUCT ©. The folks who run this place have somehow managed to make fish taste – and feel in the mouth – like something...ethereal. Only local, only fresh from this very day, and only on the grill, this stuff is nothing short of exceptional. Start with the fish tacos: plain, buffalo, or BBQ style, all are terrific – crazy good – and all are served with shredded cabbage, parsley, and fresh lime. And if you’ve got another evening or another day, PLEASE go back to PRODUCT © and eat one of the bowls that include your selection of fish, slightly refried brown rice, and your choice of sauces like jalapeno ponzu or a delicious creamy dill. Outrageously fresh, authentic, and healthy, any of these items will send you away deeply satisfied but not at all heavy or bummed about a blown diet. Plus, somehow you always come away from PRODUCT © feeling cooler than you were before you went. Which leads to . . . PEOPLE: PRODUCT © is a family-run outfit. Mama and the guys making the fish magic – at an open grill behind a counter that lets them hang with (enchant, mesmerize, flirt with) the customers – know why they ended up in Costa Rica: Pura Vida. They want to share their love of this culture, this craftsmanship, and their fish with you. You very well will make a lifelong friend after a visit or two. Meanwhile, the memorable PRODUCT © seafood masters are the consummate professionals: preparation, timing, service, and attentiveness all are exquisite. They care. BOTTOM LINE: Drop the mic. If you miss PRODUCT ©, you’re missing out. This is first-rate, world-class seafood.More

Came here on a whim after a day of surfing per recommendation of the surf shop we rented from. AMAZING fish tacos. We initially ordered the original and Buffalo style but had to try the BBQ after how great the others were. Grilled, fresh, and...flavorful fish. We are from San Diego and have had many a good fish taco, but these were on another level.More

This was recommended by our host, and it did not disappoint. There are only a few barstools in the tiny place, but lots of outdoor seating under shade. We ordered a couple lemonade cocktails- Captain & Pirate, the fish taco variety platter (BBQ, regular, and...buffalo), and a bowl. They were all delicious. Fish of the day was sea bass- YES!!!! So everything you order is sea bass as the fish, so good. Service was casual and awesome. Really happy with the experience and looked like all the other guests had similar feelings.More

Wow - how utterly refreshing to eat great food in a great environment with great service. This holy trinity seems next to impossible to find in Santa Teresa but I can confidently say that after 5 months here, Product C stands a giant cut above...the rest. The fish sandwich was the tastiest and freshest sandwich in town (fish is literally caught that morning and the ciabatta bread was so soft and fresh, too). The tacos were great as well and the spiked lemonade was amazing. Both servers, Max and Tim (yes, you read correctly - not one but two servers taking care of our table) made the experience really enjoyable. It's no wonder they are always full with such a loyal cliental. I'm already thinking about going back in a few days.More

This place is the bomb! Was recommended to try the El captain drink, and it did not disappoint! So delicious I needed 2! It’s a boozy lemonade, a must try! 🍋 🍹 Also highly recommend the fish tacos! They are grilled and freaking delicious! If...you bold and up for it try the homemade hot sauce! It’s to die for! Wish I knew the secret to it! I wish I had a picture of the food but I ate it before I could even snap a photo! The staff was also extremely friendly and made my experience amazing! Can’t wait to go back!More

Hands down my favorite restaurant in Santa Teresa. Aside from the amazing, fresh seafood, the owners and staff are very friendly and have an amazing vibe. Could not recommend more. We were in town over Christmas for a week and went back over 5 times....An absolute must! Sailor Bowl was my go-to.More

The price is NOT high at all! I mean, the place looks fancy and clean so we almost didn’t sit down because we thought the serving was gonna be small... wrong!! The servings are big, the service was really casual and cool, yet attentive. But...the flavor: 10/10. My gosh the Sailor Bowl - creamy, toasty, nutty, fishy, just perfectly salty and kinda guilt-free cuz the rice was whole grain... If you are nearby, don’t think twice before dropping by and having at least 79 Sailor Bowls on my behalf. And the fish pâte, I give you my word you’re gonna like it.More
