The perfect place for a full lunch, afternoon tacos or a beer to watch the sunset. No better location on the santa teresa beach. Natural shade and a breeze makes it delightful. The food is terrific as is the service. The kids can play for...hours while you relax with the most incredible views.More

We love the location of Rocamar! perfect to watch the sunset! Its right on the beach and very casual with good beach vibes and open air. The fish tacos were really good, they also have great drip coffee from Taza Amarilla.

We have been going to Rocamar for 5 yrs now. It is close to where we stay and also fun to go to a place right on the beach, despite it previously being a hang out place. The food has always been fair..until this year....We had the most amazing food as a result of the new ownership; Jimmy and Nicholas, I believe. They are doing wonderful things in their kitchen now so do go to Rocamar! They serve breakfast and lunch but also dinner if you are seated before 6:30-7. This is no longer the party place and that is a very good thing. The new owners have stepped Rocamar up many notches and it shows! And there are vegan and vegetarian options that will blow your mind, in addition to other wonderful dishes. I'm a die hard Packer fan but I will absolutely say all good things about Rocamar, even tho they are the personal chefs for Tom and Giselle Brady when they are in Santa Teresa!!More

Recamar has one of the best atmospheres in Santa Teresa. Going to any bar/restaurant on the beach is pretty darn fantastic, but the feeling at this place is the best. Especially on Sunday afternoons. The music by Sebastian Longo is literally perfect and the best...vibes around and such an eclectic mix. And the food by Nico F is insane!!!!!! I can't really say which meal I've liked best, but you can't go wrong with the fish burger and then of course the raw chocolate cake! Don't miss out if you're in Santa Teresa...this is THE SPOT!More

Just wow! By far my favorite restaurant in Santa Teresa. Went on Saturday for dinner, had a veggie entree and the most amazing sirloin steak, absolute perfection (still dreaming with the potato gratin). Great argie chef, even came to check on us after dinner. The...place has it all: the best food, beachfront, live music and great staff. Ended up going back for lunch twice before leaving. Definitely must visit if you are in Santa Teresa!More

The menu was superb – matched by the setting, the friendly service and oh yes, the surf. A favorite for sure.

While getting lost on an ATV, parched from lack of water, I stumbled into Rocamar. A seaside oasis for the weary and thirsty. Only having several colones I ordered up a Choco Mono. Cool and refreshing, as I gazed out at the surf, I said...to myself, this would be an excellent place for brunch before the superbowl the following day. So, the following day, we saddled up the ole ATV, and off we went from Montezuma to Santa Teresa. When we arrived the waitress smiled and said, "choco mono? " as we were seated at one of the shaded tables. Bloody Mary's and Mojitos to start, followed by a breakfast burrito and a Benny Brioche. Each dish was freshly made and served within 15 minutes. The wife ordered another bloody. One of the best shes ever had. Chef Nico introduced himself and thanked us for coming. My wife told him that her Benny Brioche was an incredible way to serve eggs benny. The hollandaise was rich, the egg just right and the mahi mahi gravlax instead of ham was a perfect addition. We savored every bite and soaked in the incredible view from our table. Several hugs and pura vidas later, we saddled up the ATV and rode off into the dusty sun. Chef Nico we will return, thank you and the staff for an amazing brunch and incredible chill views. Pura Vida Michael and KimMore
