Tierra Mar: Peruvian Food in Costa Rica
The restaurant is very nice, clean and decorated with Peruvian motives . Family environment. It has a yard at the back where children can play, you may leave your dog there too. Good service and most credit cards are accepted. Safe parking, there is a watchman that you can tip before leaving. You can try most Peruvian dishes, seafood, fish and creole dishes too.
You can try an appetizer like "Piqueo Marino" that contains samplers of ceviche, choros a la chalaca (mussels in onion sauce) and "causa de camarones", all can be accompanied with the famous "cuzqueña" Peruvian beer or a delicious "Chicha Morada" (refreshment made of purple corn) . If you are inclined to eat fish you can try "Pescado a la chorrillana" (corvina sauteed with onions) or "pescado a lo macho" (corvina stuffed with seafood), if you prefer just seafood you may order "arroz con camarones" (shrimps with rice) or "Saltado Oriental" that contains a variety of seafood with a special oriental-oriental flavor style. If you want to try a soup, order "Chupe de camarones" (milky soup with shrimp). They also offer chinesse peruvian style food, take a look at the last page of the menu. My wife is a "Gallina Chi Jau Kay" lover so she ordered one just for herself.
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is Pulpo al Olivo (Octopus in black olive sauce). Soft pieces of Octopus in a delicious sauce made of Peruvian Black Olives (Kind of Kalamate Greek Olives). This is already a classical dish at any peruvian restaurant. I ordered also the "Causa Limeña", smash potatoe filled with a variety of options, it can be shrimp, octopus, vegetables or chicken.

Marisqueria Santa Barbara: The Best Seafood in town
The interior is nothing special, but the prices and selection are fantastic. The menu boasts traditional Costa Rican dishes as well as a large selection of fresh Corvina, Snapper, shrimp, lobster, octopus, and more.
Favorite Dish: I love the garlic corvina (sea bass). It comes with rice or potatoes and salad and is completely drenched in garlic. Yumm.
