We went to this restaurant twice in our 4 day stay and it was great all around. The caipirinhas are deeeeeelightful, perfect for the heat and humidity in ST. We had the tuna tartar, mahi mahi ceviche, tuna carpaccio, the whole fried red snapper in garlic and the mahi mahi special. ALL were very fresh and delicious. I will say we got the fish and chips, which was meh just a little greasy and heavy but the fries were wonderful. If you want seafood in ST you have to try this place, you won't regret it.

I took my partner here for a celebration dinner and she LOVED it! The food was beyond amazing! We went a little earlier in the night (around 7pm) and found that although the service was a bit slow, the food made up for it. We ordered the Sesame crusted tuna and the ceviche and were so pleased with our meal!

Definitely recommend going here for a nice dinner!

Fish bar has a great vibe and better food. The food is fresh like you'd expect in Costa Rica. The sesame seed encrusted tuna and Mahi tartar are incredible. We went there twice. The service can be a bit too slow when they are busy but the friendly staff and live band make up for it. Will go back to fish bar next time we are in Santa Teresa.

Service was slow and inattentive mainly due to a group of loud and boisterous teenagers who showed up right behind us.

Although the restaurant can’t really control the actions of the group it would have been appreciated at least asking them to tone it down. We were unable to hold a conversation over the noise of the live music and teenagers banging on their tables.

We decided to stay and try some appetizers in case the food was good enough to outweigh the atmosphere and sadly it was not.

Calamari was mostly batter and over cooked, the ceviche was the worst we have had in Costa Rica and the croquettes tasted of deep fryer oil yet somehow were undercooked inside. The garlic shrimp was the only dish I actually enjoyed.

I don’t know how this place gets such high reviews but maybe we were there on a VERY off night. I would not return and would not recommend this place.

waited for over an HOUR, then we realized it was never being prepared in the first place. we left, the RUDEST and most impatient waiters ever, couldn’t even get us a second bottle of water, didn’t even bother to get our attention once we left. after a long, tiring day, we thankfully found a MUCH better place down the street to the right.
