We were recommended the Camaron Dorado by our hotel concierge. After a morning spent at Playa Conchal, we decided to make our way back to this restaurant in Brasilito and give it a try. The tables were not only beachfront, they were ON the beach sand. We all thought the location was wonderful. Is it fancy? No. Overall it is a simple local restaurant full of local charm. Previous reviews spoke of it being tourist-y. I thought the contrary. We were approached by mariachis, but quickly dismissed them without a complaint, and went back to listening to the waves. In fact most tables were full of local families (we were there on a Sunday afternoon). Now, the food - the casado plate was great and the fish was the BEST piece of fish we ate in Costa Rica. Absolutely perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned. Some reviews say it was over-priced. We paid less for our casado plates than we did at any other local restaurants. I can't speak for the specialty seafood plates. If you are in Conchal, Brasilito or Playa Flamingo, looking for simple restaurant experience with a view of the ocean that can't be beat and great Costa Rican food, this is it.
