“So simple - so good”

Lazlo's Catch of the Day
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Came to eat here twice as it was so good the first time. As many wrote already - the place is simple, it is not a fancy restaurant with well dressed waiters. What the place has is BEST FISH IN TOWN :) Maybe best fish in the world. It tastes so fresh and tasty, amazing. Robbie also offered us some tasty rum. :)

We spent a nice evening talking to Lazlo - heard about his experience, how he came from Europe and ended up in Costa Rica, his values and way of life.
Food and atmosphere - the best you get in Puerto Viejo!

We have been in Costa Rica 5 months and Lazlo's may have been our finest meal yet. The fresh grilled snapper was perfectly prepared with olive oil and garlic and the side vegetables were abundant and delicious. The Dad catches the fish while the son acts as front-end manager and waiter. We had been told their tuna was delicious but they didn't have any that day because Dad hadn't caught any.

Ladies room was a bit dodgy and it saddens me to relate that Mom had just used it and hadn't felt the need to replenish supplies.

We met Robbie (Lazlo´s son) after scuba diving one afternoon. He mentioned his restaurant and we went for dinner. Menu is: catch of the day, fries and grilled veg. Delicious plus he treated us with his home made cocktails. Bit of Hungarian family going on and that made it all the better :)

Next to the street but cosy and friendly. Good food and very fresh fish. We liked it a lot and we will come back.
