If you travel through Puntarenas make this Restaurant a stop. Best 'seafood' I have had in Costa Rica for a LONG time. The Jumbo Shrimp in Garlic were 'Jumbo', fresh and delicious. Great plantain chips and salad. Great Service, great options and explanations of the menu. Most importantly is the best value by far for Seafood that I have found.... More

Your eyes will travel while delighting of a gorgeous view, if low tide or high tide, the grays and the black colors of the light will relax the rest of your senses and prepare you for true authentic flavors of Costa Rican natural and delicious cuisine. Starting with a nice cold beer and the opportunity of a small tapas is... More

I've been eating at La Leda for many years and have yet to be disappointed. This is a favorite among Ticos and tourists alike. Very nice view at high tide when the water fills up the estero. The food is good and fresh. Try the Clamar Caribeno!

This is a great find in the area! It is actually in Caldera (not the city of Puntarenas) but it's well worth the short drive. The menu is heavy on fresh seafood but there are other options available. My pescado entero (whole fried fish) was huge and prepared to perfection. The staff was exceptional and worked together so that all... More

Intended for those who love eating good seafood... in big sizes! The restaurant has always been seriously consistent in giving out generous portions of excellent seafood. A wide menu of octopus, shrimp or fish alternatives (among others) will make you happy. Quick and efficient service while you enjoy the view at Mata de Limon´s estuary.
