As the titte says it, Big Disappointment!! My husband and I went to this restaurant last night because of its reviews, we are sorry we did. The Arroz con mariscos had tiny pieces of shells at the bottom of the plate. We noticed it after we had eaten most of our dinner. We told the waiter about it but he... More

Astonishing how good this little restaurant is. Simply the finest Italian food I have ever eaten. We asked the server to bring us their 5 best dishes. Fantastic pizza was just the beginning of our feast. A ravioli dish with marinara sauce that was beyond belief. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough

Walking the town later at night, looking for a bite, most things were closed... Until we spotted the lights and laughter of Tierra Mar. Walking up you could tell this was a classy establishment, and just the smell of the seafood was enough. All of the fish was good, sides were amazing, and the service was excellent.

We were there for a late lunch or early dinner, the waiter talked us into the Red Snapper, it was overcooked and we waited a good 45-55 minutes for it to arrive. It was dry and without much favor, I think they were having an off day.

We ordered the red snapper for two, and there was so much food that we couldn't even think about dessert. Great service and ambiance.

Out of this world ceviche and the best fish! We had a whole red snapper that came with vegetables and potato "pancakes". You can taste the freshness. It's not cheap but it's good quality and delicious food.

TripAdvisor did not disappoint with this recommendation! We had the Lomo Saltado and a shrimp garlic dish that I forget the name of. The beef was so tender and cooked perfectly! The shrimp was delicious! The drinks were too sweet (margarita), but that seems to be how it is in most places in Costa Rica. For dessert we had a... More

We went there for dinner with local friends and had a great dinner! Ceviche came in three different variations and is truly one of the best all over Costa Rica- and we are trying always ceviche. Then we had a Pargo in herbs - delicious! A tinto de verano just like back in Spain. A great place!
