Living in Samara, we eat out often, an Esmeralda is, hands down, the most consistently great "full menu" restaurant in Samara! Everyone we have ever taken there asked to go back before they leave!

Good steaks and food in general. Open year round. Indoors. Have eaten here four times over the last two months. The food is consistent.

We had lunch one day at the Casa Esmeralda, and it was very good. Maybe a little over-priced, like many other meals in Playa Sámara, but still good. The service and presentation were excellent. The one downside to this establishment is its location and lack of atmosphere. It's a little bit sterile looking on the inside, and could do with a little splash of color and culture!

We enjoyed a delicious meal at this restaurant. The server was very nice and helpful with giving us ideas on things to do in Samara. I had the gnocchi and my husband had a pasta with sea food. This was one of the best meals we had in Samara. The restaurant has fans so it was nice and cool. You receive garlic bread with your meal. The price of the dinner was very cheap for the quality of food. Make sure you eat here while you are in Samara.

Had the fish with avocado sauce, very tastey, it was done with Mahi Mahi. This is an upmarket soda good (no chilero) for a more formal dinner. The service is attentative, food came extremely fast. We sat upstairs and even in a hot summer night it was fine
