Great beach location if you are in the area, but they charge way way too much for their food, my fault, should have know better on the special. Service was ok

Plenty of parking, friendly staff but... The fried fish (sea bass) with fries was horrible. The fish was over fried and that’s very dry and the fries were cold. The calamari rings sautéed in butter and garlic were delicious. The plantain served with beef and...beans we’re perfect. When we asked for our bill the waiter then began to hover over us the entire time waiting for an added on tip. He did so much less than the waitress that brought our beverages!! She actually caught that one of the beers wasn’t what was ordered, and then asked us about refills later.More

Overpriced, nice place, credit cards accepted, big parking lot, the whole fish was very small and expensive (ask the size first), the special seafood soup supposed to have lobster but it was served without it (check the ingredients before eating it)

Again I hate to dog someone's business but I hate to see people waist money. My wife and I have passed this place for five years and kept saying we need to stop, well we did, what a rip off. We should have known better...when we looked at the menu and there was nothing under $14.00 and on top of that the chips they brought out with the Salsa were stale at 11:30 in the morning....should have been a dead give away. Ordered the Seafood Platter for two, $42.00, nothing but two small filets of Talapia and a bunch of ocatapus and calamari stirred up in garlic butter. If it wasn't for the view this placed would have nothing.More

But food was only average. My filet was overcooked but the sauce was tasty. Lemonade and smoothies were very good. Fish was large but only average

We are foodies. This was our least favorite meal of the week long trip. Nice spot by the beach. Friendly staff. Convenient spot to stop.

This also was recommended by a local tica. Oh my! The food was outstanding. Two friends ordered the fresh seafood platter for two. What a feast of the best and freshest seafood we had in Jaco.

We visited Fiesta del Mariscos twice. It is not cheap, but the food is delicious. We had seafood soup (fabulous) and equally delightful ceviche. Kids loved the patacones. The service was top notch as well.

Fresh ceviches as well as good rice and fish dishes. Authentic Costa Rican. Nice stop for lunch after a hot morning in Carara National Park; fresh lemonade was a welcome beverage!
