A group of us went for lunch and all got the fish wrap. The fish was fresh and the wrap was full of it unlike other places where there is a small portion of fish. Great seasoning and sauce made the wrap even better... Loved the fresh lemonade too!

Thank you for your comment. Yes, we believe there should be enough fish in the wrap to make it a fish wrap, not just a vegetable one! More

We've had lots of sea food during our Costa Rica trip - BUT THESE TACOS were one of our favorites. Soooooo delicious! Also the ceviche, fish pate and the homemade lemonade were full of flavour. IOn top of that the service was very friendly and helpful - don't think about it any longer, just go and get yourself some tacos!

Owned by a family from the US. This is a fish market but also has food. It's a two minute walk from the beach and is in a nice location. Great fish tacos!

Thank you. Yes, our fish tacos are very popular. Our family is from Canada, north of Vancouver on the West coast, a lovely place very similar to here, just colder, the Sunshine Coast. Three of our children were born there. My husband and I are from France. More

I had an amazing fish bowl with Asian spices and brown rice, mouthwatering good. The ceviche was super fresh, the staff was very nice and friendly. Just to clarify Mermaid Water on the menu is white wine! :)

The restaurant is a little hidden but actually only a few steps from the main road. I entered the restaurant and wanted to order some take-away. The guys told me that they are not doing take-away as they don't like the waste it produces. I like this Idea a lot and support it 200%! Well done!!!! I went back to... More
