My husband and I went with a group of friends. I ordered the seafood & rice. The mussels we're smashed opened, portions of the broken shell were mixed in with the rice. I didn't eat it, as I was worried I'd break a tooth. The crab on top you couldn't crack eat, as they didn't provide an to to crack... More

Excellent Bloody Mary and Mojito. Kids enjoyed the fresh Mango juice. The grilled baby octopus salad was an eyeful and delicious. All our fish dishes were excellent. Service is excellent, friendly and efficient. Relaxing breezes and views of the comings and goings on the street.

We ate here on our first and last mornings in Costa Rica, and no other place beat it for atmosphere, quality of food, price and service. I had the Costa Rican breakfast both times, and it was wonderful. My wife had the American breakfast both times (not the adventurous type, my wife!), and she enjoyed it, as well. Service was...

Yes, this place has a view of the street in Coco. Yes you can eat there. No, we weren't impressed. Cold eggs, items forgotten on multiple orders & very limited menu. Really can't recommend on basis of other options very nearby. Servers were pleasant.

This place was a bit pricier than the surrounding restaurants, but it has a very well laid out seating area with a view of the street and thatched roof to protect you from the rain :) Service was stellar, menu was extensive, and all of the food we ordered was prepared perfectly and tasted incredible.

My partner ordered the lobster, and he said that it was pretty good. we had the house wine to drink. It was better than most restaurant wine in CR. The service was very good. Our... More

We stopped in one night to enjoy a new place for dinner while in Playas Del Coco. This place was a little odd to begin with as you had to walk around an unused swimming pool to get to your table. They advertised tax and tip included in your price which was true as it was already built into your... More

We spent a week in Coco and had dinner at different restaurants every night. The food and service at Restaurante Casa del Mar was the best! The seafood soup and lobster dinner was extremely tasty and well presented. The service was fabulous.

Seriously this was the best food we had in all of Coco Beach. The Red Snapper is awesome - comes descaled and fried. But so fresh and yummy. My wife had arroz con pollo and it was alright but we both loved the snapper. The view was nice too because it was up high.
