This elegant restaurant with superb service was phenomenal. We especially appreciated a personally designed vegetarian pasta dish which tasted fabulous, as did our other entrees.A delight in St Augustine Beach (with a short walk to glimpse the Atlantic ocean before the meal).

The food here is to die for, truly a great experience. The service is superior in quality. Victor our waiter and his co-workers are stellar. This place is a must if you are in St Augustine.

Awesome experience, just a bit dark atmosphere - waiters very professional and caring. Limited Menu, however, easier to choose.

La Cocina Int'l catered my niece's wedding and the food was wonderful! The appetizers were incredible and the buffet dinner was delicious. The presentation was beautiful and the staff was very attentive. Everyone raved about the food!!

This isn't a 'seafood' restaurant. There are usually two seafood items and they are excellent. If you want a predominately seafood restaurant with four or five fresh catches every day, try Caps on the Water.
