A friend and I split the catch of the day--a grilled red snapper and rice and vegetables. So delicious, and the owner was so gracious and friendly. I'd definitely visit again!

I have a problem with their lack of cleanliness. Having seen the kitchen; I found it scary. The wait staff appear to care more than the owner/managers do. The food and drinks are very expensive. The menus were old & tattered. The Menus had been...More

The Cameron Dorado (aka the Goilden Shrimp) is a rustic seafood restaurant right on the beach at Playa Conchal. It is nothing fancy, just plastic tables and chairs sitting right in the san, but the fish is very fresh and very, very good. If you...More

We didn’t eat here, so can’t comment on the food (although it looked tasty), but this is the perfect place to sit and watch the Pacific Ocean crash onto the beach at Brasilito. In October the view is breathtaking, dark thunder clouds and white breakers....More

We had the best coconut shrimp at this restaurant! Literally I spent the afternoon waddling away to my car after we ate here. The plate was huge and I swear the shrimp were so huge it must have been 1-1/2 to 2 lbs of shrimp...More

the food was amazing, you have the traditional dishes like casado, but I ordered the Arroz con Mariscos, which I would like to say is best thing I had in the whole trip. Its likea Costa Rican Paella.

Too expensive and food was just ok. Prices in the menu are NOT inclusive of taxes, so you will need to add that at the end. Ceviche was not good.

Food was Ok, but prices are too expensive for what you get. Example 9.000 cólones for a "corvina" croaker plate plus taxes that are not included in the menu. Horrible menu and place presentation.

Water front dining venue with excellent views! Servers and staff were friendly and attentive. We ordered the seafood special with lobster, shrimp, Mahi-mahi, calamari, and it delicious! Highly recommend! Great food, great service, great views.

We seemed to recall having a good meal here a few years ago, so decided to try it again. While the location is lovely, on Brasilito Beach, and the welcome very friendly, it kind of went downhill from there. Food was average in quality, and...More
