“Tierra Mar Mission Control Trip”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

I had taken a large party to this location. It was extremely well received and everyone greatly enjoyed the tailored service from the staff as well as from the owner. He made us his special house dishes as well as to what was not offered on the menu. Highly suggest this place. Pura Vida

“Super excellent atmosphere and Shellfish Selection”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

We stayed at a beautiful resort on the beach but wanted some local flavor, specifically seafood. Luckily we heard about Marisqueria Tierra Mar. Bring a translator application or book or friend (I brought my Colombian wife) to help with communication. The staff went out of their way to make our meal memorable. The wine was well chilled and very reasonably priced. (A Pinot Grigio from Italy under $15!) The grilled shrimp appetizer and seafood platter were extraordinary. The octopus was cooked perfectly. It was an enjoyable outdoor dining experience with excellent food and wine topped off with courteous quick service.

“Great local seafood well prepared”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Easy to find 2 blocks from park downtown. Very accommodating staff but limited English. Chef Diego greeted us personally, discussed menu and offered alternatives. Ultimately we settled on an off menu dish of fried red snapper, sautéed jumbo shrimp with clams and muscles in garlic butter sauce accompanied by the best patacones I've had in Costa Rica. It was all wonderful. Service was a little slow but personal attention, food and atmosphere made up for it.

“Excellent Seafood Restaurant”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We were looking for a nice place to eat seafood. Thanks too TripAdvisor we found Tierra Mar. The place was really simple, but the food was amazing. Due to the fact that we do not speak Spanish we had a little hard time to communicate with the waiter, however, the owner Diego came to rescue us :) He recommended us very tasty fruity drinks to start. Then he offered soup just to let us survive till main course. Since everything on the menu looked so tasty and we could not decide what to order, Diego recommended to make a special dish just for us. The fish with different types seafood inside was amazing. He definitely knows how to mix and match different tastes. We really recommend to visit that place if you like seafood. Just say want you wish to eat and they will make it for you.

“Amazingly Fresh Seafood!!!”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Great seafood restaurant in the center of Liberia. Great ceviche -- we tried fish and La Huerta, which includes 5 types of ceviche. The steamed red snapper with ginger was amazing, fish filet al ajillo was also great. Great atmosphere - used to be an ice cream parlor - with outdoor or indoor sitting. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. This has to be one of the freshest red snappers I ever had and well prepared. Will have to go back to try other dishes!!!....highly recommend this restaurant!!! -- EXCELLENT value.
