This was one of the best meals I've had in Central America. The ceviche was top-notch, and my date and I were fighting over spoonfuls of the creamy seafood soup. We topped it off with the seafood pasta and we were not disappointed.

If you want to try a "customized" dinner especially with fish or seafood then try talking with the chef/owner Diego . The overall service was prompt ,cordial and friendly and English is spoken which makes a lot of difference
Price is good as is the ambience with an outside terrace albeit somewhat hot to visit durting daytime hours

I had taken a large party to this location. It was extremely well received and everyone greatly enjoyed the tailored service from the staff as well as from the owner. He made us his special house dishes as well as to what was not offered on the menu. Highly suggest this place. Pura Vida

We stayed at a beautiful resort on the beach but wanted some local flavor, specifically seafood. Luckily we heard about Marisqueria Tierra Mar. Bring a translator application or book or friend (I brought my Colombian wife) to help with communication. The staff went out of their way to make our meal memorable. The wine was well chilled and very reasonably priced. (A Pinot Grigio from Italy under $15!) The grilled shrimp appetizer and seafood platter were extraordinary. The octopus was cooked perfectly. It was an enjoyable outdoor dining experience with excellent food and wine topped off with courteous quick service.

Easy to find 2 blocks from park downtown. Very accommodating staff but limited English. Chef Diego greeted us personally, discussed menu and offered alternatives. Ultimately we settled on an off menu dish of fried red snapper, sautéed jumbo shrimp with clams and muscles in garlic butter sauce accompanied by the best patacones I've had in Costa Rica. It was all wonderful. Service was a little slow but personal attention, food and atmosphere made up for it.
