“try the Ginger Margaritas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

Fabulous find. We were taken by a friend and it was a great experience. We had the Ginger Margaritas together with Artichokes and tuna carpacio. Great bar atmosphere too bad we found it on our last night otherwise we would have been back.

“Got to try la ceviche blanca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

Went to La Sirena Gorda on the recommendation of a local San Miguelita. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent - especially the ceviche - and the ginger margaritas had a nice twist to them. Prices were very reasonable. Service was fast and efficient.

“Great drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

Laid back atmosphere and great cocktails. Ceviche tacos and tamarind margaritas are really good. Service was warm and welcoming too.

“Charming and delivers the local "goods"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Several people recommended this; fortunately, it was close by to our hotel. The service was fast; the food was very tasty and authentic; salsas were great. We will be back before we leave. I only wish we had discovered this darling bar earlier in our visit. It would have made dinner options much easier!
