The owner of this restaurant runs a fishing charter and all the fish is fresh and locally caught. He took the time to tell us his story and his passion for giving a quality, fresh ceviche was obvious. I took one look at the cleanliness of the restaurant, listened to his story, and I was sold. Then I tasted it. Made custom to my liking, it was by far the best ceviche I ever had. And I'm from Boston, a world capital of seafood so I wanted to find things wrong with it...I simply couldn't. Go here. I will travel to Santa Teresa just to eat here multiple times again.

This place is excellent. The chef is extremely friendly and can talk to you about everything they offer, and can even tailor the level of spice to your desire. The Mexican style ceviche with the shrimp and octopus was seriously the best I’ve had. Also, their beers may be the coldest in Costa Rica. Highly suggest visiting.

Hey, thanks for your kind words! I told you we had cold beer!!!! That Mexican style ceviche is probably my favorite right now. It was really cool talking to you and watching you eat the stuff we made you. Hope to have you back in the future.

A delicious traditional Costa Rican dish with a couple of twists that made it just right. Great service and you can tell the chef is an expert on the local seafood. Will try to come again in the future.

Fresh fish, amazing patacones, cold beers and great environment. In my opinion the best ceviche in Santa Teresa!

We found it because of the great reviews, and La Cevicheria lived up to them and more! The ceviche and the service were excellent. We tried 2 of the 3 ceviche flavors ( Mexican and tropical). I can’t decide what was better, the ceviche or the freshly made patacones! The vibe and reggae music was great also! We’ve only got a couple days left in Santa Teresa but likely to return for the Peruvian ceviche or the Tuna Poke!
