Seafood De Marsico with pasta, good food, good service and excellent sunset view, everyone should go here ay least once. The head cook himself took our order "Lionel" (Spelling?)

Great food, service is not as good as the food, but fish is super fresh, prices are reasonable and the set up is beautiful. This is a basic place, do not expect an elegant set up, but you will be almost on the beach, facing...the amazing oceanMore

This is a popular place and it does have very good food. The couple of times I have been here the service is slow and waters are not refilled unless asked. I would eat here again.

This was a great restaurant experience!! Would have eaten here more if we had found it sooner. It was recommended by a local and they were right about the food and atmosphere. By far the best, biggest and sweetest coconut shrimp I ever had. And...the chefs trio was amazing. Big enough to share with hubby with a Pacific lobster, shrimp and a tenderloin.More

This beachside restaurant is so good, we went twice, once for lunch once for dinner. It was highly recommended by our driver and it surpassed high expectations. Whole fried corvina was crispy with moist delectable flesh! We were told lobster is often available and Ivan,...our server said he would save it for us. It was the BEST local lobster in our 3weeks in CR. We brought a bottle of wine and were charged a minimal corkage , maybe $6? Overall this was the best example of local seafood, immaculately fresh and beautifully prepared. Servers were pleasant and checked to see if everything was good. Very inexpensive and terrific location, customers were mostly locals A MUST if you are in the area!More

Make sure you get there early enough to have a drink and watch the sunset. Then sit back and enjoy a fabulous meal. Terrific menu, lots of excellent choices, very friendly staff, all in all terrific experience and it's on my return list for sure.

We went here on our last night in Playa Hermosa and my only thought was that I wished we'd gone sooner. It's a small but laidback beachfront restaurant that is always busy, so it can be hard to flag down a waiter or get a...table. I had a fresh herbs & olive oil brushed fish filet with vegetables, and an Imperial beer and I think I paid about 7,000 CRC ($12 USD). The portion size was also really good. If you're in Playa Hermosa or spending a day relaxing at the beach, I would definitely recommend stopping here for a meal.More

This is the best seafood Restraunt in playa Hermosa and surrounding area. The tuna shishimi is great. Serves very large portions so don't be scared to ask to share a plate. On the beach so late Feb and March get a great sunset

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
