We watched a local soccer match here and went back the next day for lunch. The staff was extremely friendly and went above and beyond to make sure that everyone was having a great time. Many casado choices for lunch.

We stopped by for a snack. Diego greeted us and was super friendly and welcoming. We ordered chicken nachos and the presentation of the food was amazing. A huge plate of loaded nachos and a beer for $10.00. The nachos were very good and customer...service was top notch.More

A nice little find in Playa Hermosa! My husband and I stumbled upon this place on one of our walks about town. It appears to be more of a bar, which my husband doesn’t drink and I’m limited to gluten free alcohol. No matter, the...service was friendly and the food reasonably priced. We were served the same items- pescado (fish) with rice and beans, plantains, and salad. It was wonderful! We were served more food than we could eat in one sitting. I really recommend Pescado Loco for a fantastic and very affordable meal.More

We saw this place as we were walking down the road and decided to stop and have a bite. So glad we did! We sat outside at the bar and had a few cervezas before diving into some amazing seafood - mixed ceviche, octopus, mahi...mahi - it was all so good. And the staff was super friendly and even put up with my horrible attempt at speaking Spanish! Definitely recommend stopping here for amazing seafood!More
