We read Trip Advisor reviews for top restaurants in Costa Rica. Casa Esmeralda was one of the top of the list. We decided to go to into town and eat at Casa Esmeralda for lunch and was not disappointed. It wasn’t that busy on a Saturday late afternoon, but the service was great and the staff was friendly. Mixed drinks were good. Definitely recommend the Mussels and Shrimp in Emerald Sauce – awesome dish! We also had the Spaghetti w Avacado Sauce and Shrimp – this was also good. One of my friends had the Nutella Crepe for dessert. Not really expensive for lunch for three people. Really recommend this place to eat for lunch or dinner. I would definitely come back here next time I am in Costa Rica! This was the best restaurant of the places I ate at. Pura Vida!
The staff also gave us some tips on how to get to main street and to the supermarket. Also, tips to beware walking on the beach at night as people do get robbed. We encountered some shady people walking around the street at night and had to walk down the beach for safety. Much appreciated the tips!
