It was a very tasty dinner. In retrospect, we wish we'd gone to a more local place, rather than one run by a foreigner. But the food was good!

Gringo curt cooks up a mean fish taco as well as huge helpings of varied fresh fish, seasoned vegetables and potatoes. Refreshing that he does not fry any of his fish but rather steams it in banana leaves with spices. Curt himself is very welcoming...More

Gringo Curt's Seafood & Visitor Center was established June 2010 and our menu has not changed to date. We have pride in our small menu because it assures that we can provide freshness throughout the year by purchasing fruits, vegetables and fresh fish, locally and daily. There are many benefits to having same day caught fish but one downside is that we cannot guarantee a time that we can open. If we have fish at 12pm, we open. Thank you for your consideration and look forward to your visit Pura Vida!
