Absolutely delicious. We really enjoyed our meal here. The fish ceviche was so good and I’d highly recommend it. Fresh fish, generous portions, friendly staff and a beautiful view. A winning combination!

We had a really nice sunset dinner here on the patio. As many have said, portions were generous, the food was fantastic and presented very well. We had the fish of the day special with seafood sauce on top and the coconut shrimp. I’m not...normally a squid guy but the unbreaded squid in the sauce was tender and flavorful. The shrimp were large and not too heavily breaded. Beach scene was great and the drinks were cold. Prices are in ColonsMore

The most amazing sunset view while enjoying an excellent seafood dinner! The food is amazing and the view set the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening. The chef’s trio was delicious and the portions were more than enough.

I had high expectations given this restaurants rating. The food was mediocre, but beware of buying wine there. I asked for a wine list and the waiter said they didn’t have one. I wanted a bottle of Sauvignon blanc or Chardonnay . The waiter said...they didn’t have either by the bottle but had it by the glass for $7.00 per glass. He did say they had a bottle of Pinot Grigio for $14.00, so we all agreed it was a better deal to buy the bottle even through it wasn’t what we wanted. After getting the bill I found he charge $40.00 for the bottle. We asked for the manager for a wine list that would show the wine price. He told us that they didn’t have any written wine list. He said he would talk to the owner and then offered to take off $10.00 but that was all the owner would do. After getting back we learned that he actually took off $6.60. Unbelievable. Felt taken.More

We heard from tourists and locals that this restaurant was an absolute must try. Let me say that they were 100% correct. This was the best food we had while visiting Guanacaste. We tried a little bit of everything. Shrimp ceviche, fish fingers, and the...chef's tray. Everything was delicious! Also had a few drinks, Pina colada and Gunacaste. Our waiter was Guillermo (Memo). He was very friendly and attentive. To our surprise, when we were ready to go back to our resort, he offered to give us a ride back instead of calling a taxi! We were very appreciative and that was reflected in our tip. Thank you Memo! If you have the opportunity, do not miss this restaurant!!!More

Great location on the beach. easy to find. Easy parking. The food was excellent! Very fresh shrimp dishes and seafood platter dishes. But the absolute must try is the seafood ceviche. Large, fresh and jam packed with an array of different seafoods. Had dinner here...on consecutive nights, it was so good. One note: unlike most resturants in CR...this location does not automatically add the service tax to your bill....make ure you tip your server appropriately!More

My wife and I dined for dinner at La Casita Del Marisco and it was fabulous. It was open air dining on Playa Hermosa. There are many menu options at reasonable prices. Very nice music was being played and the staff was friendly and professional....I had the Grilled Seafood Platter and my wife had the Seafood Platter Veracruzana. Both were absolutely delicious! One of the best restaurants we visited in Costa Rica!More

We heard about this place on the Costa Rica info Facebook page and declined to check it out - it’s a hidden gem off the main road in playa Hermosa- Waze will guide you wrong so just look for the sign - ginger restaurant will...be to the left - take a right onto the dirt road after that. Food was authentic and delicious - get the seafood, you’re at the beach- caught fresh that morningMore

It was POURING rain and we managed to get ourselves to the charming restaurant. Our servers were attentive. We started with a salad which we split and then each had an entree. We could have easily split one entree as they were large! Food was...good and prices were great. Service was good too.More

Abigail T, I am not sure why you are punishing the restaurant for the behavior of a local who had nothing to do with the restaurant. Your review is the only negative one of this restaurant and you then go on to complain... More
