We are locals and this restaurant is the best for fine dining in St. Augustine beach. The service is absolutely impeccable and the food is superb. Not only is the food delicious but each course is presented in an interesting and enticing way. Atmosphere is intimate and unlike so many places, the noise level is minimal and allows for pleasant...

This restaurant (which is housed in a restaurant, Castillo Royale, is an exceptionally fine place to eat. The food is wonderful, the cuisine is inventive, fresh, and always delicious. It is one of the top restaurants in St. Augustine. It is a beautiful site as well and one that is perfect for a special night out or a upscale lunch.

I have been a regular customer now for several years. Every dining experience has been beyond outstanding! Service, again, beyond outstanding. Ambiance, perfect! I have never had a disappointing experience. The food is the best part of the dining experience and I have never been to a restaurant anywhere that has better food presentation. Dinner at La Cocina is always... More

I've never tasted better. The restaurant acoustics are bad - it gets very noisy with only a few parties there. Skip the main meal and go for dessert.

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant last night. I had filet mignon which was outstanding. My husband had scallops and they were done to perfection. Elegant presentation served hot by professional wait staff. Expect to pay a little more for entrées here but well worth it.

Top rated in St Augustine for a reason, but with some weird lapses. First off, this place is outstanding. Expensive and worth it. I was skeptical initially, but fortunately gave in. The menu is imaginative, with Hispanic hints but truly international. And the food is beautifully prepared and delicious. The service is also top notch, and the setting is elegant,... More

We ordered there fresh fish of the day which was halibut, very fresh and nicely prepared with pico di gallo. Beautiful art stuff and cozy atmosphere. Highly recommended! Also excellent for breakfast we have been here many times!

We understand the chef recently left to open his own restaurant, it shows. My pallea was not good, sent it back for lamb which was uninspired. Plus the waiter forgot to provide a knife. Tender but lacking in flavor. The lobster bisque is fair. My husband had the flounder special and that was very good. He paired it with a... More
