After spending a late Sunday morning walking through the La Cruz waterfront market we decided on a late lunch at Oso's. It was fairly crowded given all the people who go to the market and although we grabbed a table fairly quickly it appeared there were only 2 servers taking orders. The servers were supported by other staff who delivered... More

Recently, some friends and me went to Oso's for dinner. We arrived at 6:00 pm on a Sunday only to discover that they had just closed for the evening. Oh dear! The owner, Angel, was just leaving but when he saw us enter, he returned and assured us that although the kitchen was closed and the staff were ready to... More

The place gets crowded during Sunday Market day and they have a band; they cater primarily for a North American clientele. The food is fairly average. They also have musical enterianment during the week. Not much more to say. Cheers

I visited during the farmer's market and the place was packed so I thought the food must be good. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing (mahi mahi filet) because it was overlooked and lacked flavour. I thought a fish market restaurant would make a killer fish filet dinner but I was sorely disappointed. Service was also very slow. Do yourself... More

Easiest to find, modern on the harbour, packed on Sunday market days. Great live entertainment on Thursdays with pro flute/sax player at a game 7pm. Drinks well made and fairly priced, food beyond what you would expect from a busy popular place. Harbour views, decent staff, well worth a stop, especially when Bryan Savage is playing on Thursday nights. World... More

Fun place to be for Sunday Brunch after visiting the weekly market. Music and dancing. Do not get a Marguerita. They taste like dish water. Lovely location at the marina. Food is OK. Thursday night they have a saxophone player who is mavrelous, not to be missed.

Don't miss the Sunday market in La Cruz , we stopped for lunch after a little shopping. There was a live band playing at 2 in the afternoon which was fun. Food was decent but the menu wasn't very large so it was hard to find something I was feeling like. The owner was a friendly guy and chatted with... More
