I dined here with my family last week and loved it. The place was recommended to us by someone who told us it looks modest but is totally fabulous-- and that was exactly right. It is the opposite of fancy, but oh my goodness, the...freshness of the food and the warm, gracious quality of the service. One of the real highlights of our week in Santa Teresa.More

Our group of friends had ceviche last night and it was the most extraordinary ceviche we have had without exception, and many of us thought it was the best restaurant dish we have ever eaten of any kind of food. It’s a modest establishment, and...watching the staff make our ceviche with such exquisite care and masterful attention was a delight in itself. And the flavors! The freshness! The range of subtle details! Not to be missed. Wonderful people behind the counter. I had the “tropical” preparation with tuna and mahi-mahi and it was mind-blowing.More

Our party of four loved this little place. You customize your ceviche with choice of fish, sauce and add-ons. Super fresh and delicious. Only ding is limited drink choice but owner told us he is expanding the physical space and the drink menu.

Really quite a great meal; our group of 4 built 3 distinct Ceviche bowls, selecting from the freshest offerings , and I opted for a Caribbean Stir Fry. All of thought it was one of our better meals in CR. Nice portion size, super fresh...ingredients, healthy. Highly recommend.More

I Stopped here with my wife to grab a quick bite. the sign outside said A/C and wifi. It felt like about 90 degrees outside so a cold beer and ceviche sounded good. We went inside and it felt like about 92 degrees. Ceviche was...good, beer was good. No A/C sucks.More

We ordered three ceviche dishes to sample the various flavours on offer. This really is a no thrills small cafe/restaurant so we came for a fairly quick dinner. There’s a very welcoming and fun feel.l to this place. The fish was fresh and the flavours...standout. A must try!More

Dropped in on our first day, as trip advisor states it’s #1. We were not disappointed! Aaron was super friendly and made us all some of the most delicious food we have had on our trip. We will definitely be back for the tuna poke!...Mucho gracias!More

Cute little place along the main drag of Santa Teresa. Good people, very fresh seafood, flavorful and made to order. Spendy but well worth it.

We took my husbands parents here who are visiting from Baja and they said it was better than any ceviche they get over there. Everything was so fresh and delicious, these guys are super pro at what they do! They have cold beers and delicious...fresh fruit juices too. The flavour combo options you can pick from all look so good, we loved everything we tried. It was amazing that they offer a tropical vegan ceviche option too, my mother in law said “I think this is the coolest thing I have ever eaten!”More
