my family had a great meal at El Marquez. it doesn't look like much from the outside, but do yourself a favor and go in and eat. very good selection of meat, fish, pasta. My wife and i both had sea bass, mine with a white wine & shrimp topping, and my wife's with garlic and butter. both were outstanding. the kids had pasta w/ chicken, and shrimp. the waiter was very nice and helpful, and the wine selection was adequate. over 8 days in Costa Rica, this was our best meal. i went there because it was a Fodor's choice restaurant, and it was definitely a great choice!

Get the Ceviche! Seafood here is great, reasonably priced. This is within a short-walk of the "triangle" tourist center of town and is a worthy stop for the well-heeled and budget traveler.

Sweet little restaurant looked closed on Monday midday but we went in and got excellent service and food and channel on tv changed to Nickelodeon for our 3yr old. Ordered seafood soup, gazpacho, seafood fried rice. Fantastic and quick service. Definitely recommend.
