Lazlo's restaurant is one of my favorites in Puerto Viejo. Fresh fish for a good price. The atmosphere is very nice and Robby makes the best drinks !!! My husband even went fishing with them!

Fresh fish ("catch of the day"), casual ambiance, friendly owner/son management. Recommended by locals, and closed for the remainder of the month (September 2017). *NOTE: No sign outside; located next door to pizza and under neon sign that says, "express."

There is only one dish on the menu - whatever Lazlo catches that day or the day before! The night we were there, it was Red snapper on a big plate surrounded by vegetables. Lip-smacking, finger licking good. BIG smiles and good vibes. We had...More

Yes, Catch of the Day is the real deal! You can show up any night, and be assured that your fish was still swimming in the ocean that morning. I actually ate the fish that I caught myself !!! You can setup a trip with...More
