We had the tropical ceviche and it blew our minds. The combination of different flavours of salty and super fresh fish (we had octupus and tuna) sweet fruits, spicy jalapenos, onions and lemon gave us a super delicious explosion of taste. The patacones topped it off. Literally the best food we had on our travels through Costa Rica.

Thank you chicos for this food experience!

Our patacones are gaining a bit of a cult following. You are not the first people to express your love for them. It was super nice to meet you and share a bit of a chat while We made your food and you ate it. Hope to see you soon!!!

La Cevicheria is the brainchild of Aaron Atkey and Mario Montoya, two local chefs with a deep and abiding love for combining the freshest, most tasty ingredients into ceviches that are truly without peer on the peninsula, if not the entire country of Costa Rica. Their menu is simple and straightforward, allowing the customer to get exactly what they want without any fuss. Each and every ceviche is made-to-order, offering a tasty and delicious product that would cost much more elsewhere. Mario and Aaron treat every customer with Pura Vida, as well as provide them with a gourmet quality dining experience at a budget price. La Cevicheria is a MUST!!!

Loved my visit and can't wait to go back to try them all. Fish is fresh, ordering is simple, owner and staff are friendly locals, tamarind juice is divine. The passion behind the food shines as much as the flavor and I wouldn't be surprised if people start visiting this quiet beach town just for this ceviche -- it's absolutely worth a visit.

This unassuming little restaurant packs a big bang! The ceviche is so fresh and delicious and the “secret” sauce tips it over the edge into incredible territory. This is a must stop for anyone visiting Santa Teresa and make sure to try the tamarind drink with your meal.

That sauce is a well kept secret. I am glad you liked it and enjoyed your food. The tamarindo ginger will be here whenever you want to come back! Thanks again for stopping by.
