  • La Princesa Marina: The best seafood

    by lg061870 Updated Oct 5, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had almost forgotten how Costa Rican cuisine has almost but gotten rid of salt (which usually overrides the actual flavor of food) and has replaced its flavor with other more interesting, taste-enhancing spices like celery, cilantro, pepper, lemon, etc. In La Princesa Marina (La Sabana o Moravia, etc) seafood is given this treatment, the result is delicious dishes where the natural flavor of fish, shrimp even tomatoes is "accompanied" and "enhanced" by the flavor of the spices used.

    Favorite Dish: I returned twice to this restaurant. I tried Spaghetti a la marinera, ceviche (tico-style not Peruvian) and chuchecas. For desert try a cup of coffee with a small square of Tres-Leches cake.
