Description: Fisherman and family catch and cook fresh seafood daily. Very inexpensive yet clean, well portioned food with extra attention from owners. What you see on the platter is what is available today.

The restaurant is basically the home of the fisherman and his family. It was slightly difficult to find at night but it was worth the trip. The family displays the seafood that was caught that day and you are able to select your meal. We both ended up choosing a sampler platter that included fish, squid, shrimp and mussels. The seafood was prepared quickly and you can taste the freshness. I'd suggest ordering a beer or a soft drink with dinner as the wine was served in a very small glass (probably the only negative comment I will share about this place).

The family is very friendly and they interact with you during the dinner. You are able to peer into the kitchen to observe the meal preparation and you can really smell the seafood, garlic and spices.

Recommended! Enjoy the Fisherman's House!

Been trying to remember the name of this family restaurant and finally its here for me to add a few comments to. Pouring sheets of rain in a tropical storm, buckets on the floor, we're the the only ones there and feel like royalty. Finding the fisherman's house has always been a treat for us worldwide. This place is no different, however, the hardest to find in the dark. Tip: locate it in the daylight before heading out. Pronounce it incorrectly and taxi will not know what to do. Write it down, pass it to the driver, enjoy your meal.

It's not a tourist restaurant in the traditional Manuel Antonio/Quepos style, but it is exactly the setting you would expect where the fisherman brings his big tray of fresh caught items to your table for you to choose from. Snapper, lobster, shrimp, squid; his smile is incredible, he's so proud of his catch! Revel in the setting, its a real as it gets. Its about a family being able to stay in town and do what they love, working together.

It was fun, it was private, it was tasty. Will go back every time we pass by.

This place is well known in the area and food is great but it is pricey for the seafood. The owners are friendly and service is very good. Lots of smiles from the owners and you do not have to wait long for your order. Portions are very good so be hungry or careful with how much you order.
