“Deliciuos Fresh Seafood with amazing Ocean View”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Locally known as fine seafood dining on the beach, El Pelicano is sure to satisfy those looking for fresh local seafood dishes. Amazing Mahi-Mahi, Whole Fried Snapper, Arroz con Camarones and much more. To notch service as well by the wait staff. If you are staying in the Los Suenos area, you owe it to yourself to enjoy a meal at El Pelicano!

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

This restaurant is situated right in front of the beach. The food was delicious and prices were reasonable. Had the whole fish and it was perfectly cooked. It also came with an amazing soup and salad bar. Service was outstanding and the place was very clean. Highly recommend!

“Good Meal, great setting!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

This local place, around the corner from the Marriott Los Suenos complex, is situated right on the beach.

The food is local and good. The fresh tuna Casado and beef Casado were also good.

Service was good.

Overall a good meal but you'll enjoy the setting even more!

“Awesome Seafood!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This was one of the best seafood restaurants during my visit to Costa Rica a couple weeks ago. I ordered the Mariscada, and it was HUGE! I shared it with my wife and we both loved it. The staff was very friendly and made us feel right at home. Highly recommend!
