Went for a quick lunch. I had a delicious shrimp dish, my wife a chicken dish. She ordered a small version which was more than adequate for lunch. The food was very good, hot and served quickly. The place was beginning to fill up fast as a lot of local folks apparently eat here . The mango drinks were great,... More

Hard to miss with ceviche. I got the large with just fish and it was tasty. Not the best ceviche I've ever had, but pretty damn good. The chips they used were excellent. My girl is vegetarian and there was basically nothing that she could eat. She asked for a simple green salad and they happily made her one on... More

Straight forward simple and fresh! I ordered a small fish ceviche and a small fish filet plate cooked with garlic and potatoes. Love the mango drink (ice and mango blend). Will come back next time I visit in 4 months.

Our party of 4 dined here for a quick dinner on our last night in Costa Rica. It was conveniently located only a couple blocks from our B&B Hotel Pacande. It's a fast-casual restaurant that does a pretty brisk business and was popular with locals for an after work bite. We got there around 6:30pm and plenty of people were... More

This is the second time I have visited Cevichitos--the last time before this was two years ago and both visits were excellent. I have tried both the ceviche and camerones (shrimp) with rice and both are very good dishes. The ceviche is very fresh and the camerones en salsa is just a tad spicy--enough to liven up the dish but... More

Ceviche was fabulous, shrimp dishes very tasty, staff very helpful and accommodating to special requests. Reasonable prices, lots of locals eating there, short wait, totally worth visiting and eating here.

Ceviche is delicious, the food is fresh and tasty. The atmosphere is good. It is a kind of a fast food restaurant. Good that it is open until 22:00

Our party of six dined here a few weeks ago. We loved the selection of ceviche which is there specialty and between us tried all of them! (We thought the deep fried ceviche was a bit of a misnomer) but was delicious nonetheless. Try the fruit drinks -- they were excellent. Service was fast and very friendly. One of our... More

Food was fresh and tasty. Prices reasonable. The service went missing for a bit of time, but when our flamboyant waiter was around, he was great. The interior is brightly lit, sterile, and though not overly large, there is nothing intimate about this place. The staff allowed someone from the street selling glass cleaner to come in and pitch us.... More
