Right at the beginning of Pueblo de los Pescadores you will find El Cayuco, a kind of a family restaurant, that will satisfy all needs of a group. Very nioe service and very good food, and prices are very affordable. Sea food is really good.

Twice we have visited this restaurant for lunch and both times we had pizza. I've tasted their Hawaii, Pepperoni and Margarita. Tops!!! And they come very thin which is what I like. The setting is beautiful and peaceful, next to the beach in a small Plaza. Service is good and very friendly. They also accept credit cards, which is not... More

Went 2 times to have dinner with my family and the food was great. We ordered the espada fish, paella and pasta and crema catalana. All were delicious. For sure when in Terrenas this is a must!

There are so many great restaurants in town but this is the one we return to over and over. The food is always good and the location, right on the beach, is perfect. The whole chillo is my husband's favorite dish, I like the chillo fillet but anything we've ever eaten has been excellent. Our service has always been good.

Beautiful view of the ocean. The Gazpacho was memorable, perhaps the best I've ever had -- cold soup with warm croutons. Grilled shrimp with garlic was very good. Ambiance and decor was nothing special, but made up for by the spectacular ocean view.

We visited this restaurant on New Years Eve and 2 days later and we enjoyed it very much. The cuisine is good and the service average. the best part is its location, the free wifi and the low prices. Don't expect many locals here except from the staff who can be friendly at times. Still a nice place to stop... More
