“Charming little beach restaurant with Out of this world fresh made pasta.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

...I had dreams about the divine, fresh, made-to-order pasta! Simple and yet so outstanding. Don't come after 7pm. Limited seating. They don't take reservations. The manager (or owner) comes around to every table to explain the menu. Fresh ingredients that you can taste. Delicious cocktails as well. Quaint setting with views of the ocean. Come early and enjoy taking a walk along the beach or a dip into the ocean. I had the Fettuccine Funghi pasta and loved it.

“Meeting place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is a cute place where many people "hang out". The Italian owner makes an impression that makes him famously Italian. It is fun for a dinner but not the best Italian food. Lacks flavor. Maybe fun for drinks and apps.

“Fresh an tasty food in a charming setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Posada Margherita is definitely a place to visit if you stay in for a while. Indeed after a few days of delicious Mexican food we were in the mood to try something different. This restaurant serves really fresh and tasty food. The home-made pasta are very good but so is the fish cooked in sea water.. Absolutely delicious. The Italian owners are really lovely and the atmosphere is very relaxed, great place to have dinner

“LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about this RESTO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

The owners are so passionate about the experience you have there....not just the food, all of it. It's a chic disconnected decor restaurant that sits just above the water on the beach, the staff are fluid with their food, and well the owner sat down at our table and talked to us across the table, and told us what was important to him. That we enjoy the food that was prepared not that day, but, that moment.

We didn't know that it was CASH ONLY, and well, of course, the owner said, no problem come tomorrow or when you can to pay.

The food is incredible too...

Laid back and feel good ambiance...makes this a must

“Almost Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

After days of Mexican or Mexican-like foods, we turned to Posada Margherita for a change of pace. I would echo all the good points that everyone else said - but to add a few of my own - the staff was friendly and helpful. The ambience is great, and we agree the appetizer breads are a special treat. I myself had the pasta with shrimp and vegetables, The pasta was tender, and it was a simple indulgent comfort food. On the minus side, one of our five meals was forgotten for a bit, but, hey, sometimes things aren't perfect. We would definitely go back for this change of pace.
