This is a charming local restaurant situated on the waterfront, facing the fishing boat docks and next to the Mercado del Mer (fish market). So they have access to the freshest seafoods. "Catch of the Day" is often literally "Catch of the Hour." Went there four times during our ten-day stay in La Cruz and food was fabulous each time.... More

Oso's has a privileged location next to the Marina's fish market and viewing the entrance of all private and fishing boats. Food is very good! The owner, Angel is always overlooking the kitchen and frequently goes in to apply final touches. The Octopus Chicharrón is superb, oysters in several presentations are quite good as well. Staff is very friendly and... More

This restaurant offers home cooked authentic Mexican food and sits right at the La Cruz Marina for wonderful views and gentle breezes. We had a great breakfast and I'll return again for sure.

Have been to this restaurant over the past several years. It does not disappoint. Service is good, food is good and also the service and atmosphere. Live bands play in the evening which is most enjoyable.

The food is great and the atmosphere is relaxed and spartan. Seafood is their strength. Try the Coconut Prawns!

This is one our favorites for dinner in La Cruz. Magnificent setting and view. Maybe catch a local band. The Freshest seafood, tuna is really good but the lobster stuffed ponlano is out of this world.

After spending a late Sunday morning walking through the La Cruz waterfront market we decided on a late lunch at Oso's. It was fairly crowded given all the people who go to the market and although we grabbed a table fairly quickly it appeared there were only 2 servers taking orders. The servers were supported by other staff who delivered... More

Recently, some friends and me went to Oso's for dinner. We arrived at 6:00 pm on a Sunday only to discover that they had just closed for the evening. Oh dear! The owner, Angel, was just leaving but when he saw us enter, he returned and assured us that although the kitchen was closed and the staff were ready to... More
