“The best Ceviche and fish ... AMAZING”
Review of MadFish

Reviewed 17 January 2018

This is the very fist time I have written a review in Tripadvisor and I feel its necessary.
This restaurant is very small, but nicely decorated. Please ignore the opening hours in tripadvisor, these are wrong and Tripadvisor should update them!
So the food, AMAZING, every detail, flavor, .... EXCELLENT. I tried the ceviche, which was perfect the best I've tried here in Costa Rica. Also the fish with curry sauce, again spectacular .. the sauce was to die for. My colleagues tried the octopus, shrimp with rice and the the fish and chips. The portions were generous and the flavors perfect!
The chief came out to advise us on the dishes and informed us that everything is fresh and prepared at the moment, so make a little time 1hr 15 min to enjoy the food.
You can see that there is not a single review less than 5 stars here and I tell you that this is for a reason! Tripadvisor, this place deserves an award!

I still think about how fresh and tasty the ceviches were. Wish I could go eat there regularly. Also very nice staff!

The food here is simply out of the world, the staff is very nice, and the prices were reasonable, especially when you consider the quality of the meal.

Great atmosphere! The ceviches are all amazing, as is the complimentary fish dip with plantain chips. The Madfish Sandwich and the Arroz con Camarón are both phenomenal as well!!

If you are in Costa Rica and like ceviche and fresh seafood, a meal at Mad Fish is a must. Teresa, the owner, grows her own spices and is one fabulous chef. We ordered the coco and caribeno ceviche, as well as the pescado manzanillo. It was one of the best meals we have had in a long time. We will definitely be back again!
