The Green House, Las Catalinas

Editor Note:  The restaurant at Las Catalinas is now called Limonada  – new name, and the menu has changed a bit but still great food! – Andrea 5/3/2016

The Green House in Las Catalinas is one of my favorite places to eat, mostly because I am obsessed with their fish tacos. I order them every time we go. I have sampled some of the other food and it’s all pretty great, but I literally crave their fish tacos. They also have some impressive salads on the menu, which are difficult to find in Costa Rica. They offer a kids menu and the smoothies come in a giant carafe, which the kids love.

Las Catalinas is a beach community and development with luxury condos for sale and can also be rented from the owners.  It sits on Playa Danta and their restaurant, The Green House is open to the public. The prices are a bit expensive and spending an afternoon here isn’t exactly cheap, but it’s definitely one of my favorite places to hang out. Once the sun goes down strings of white lights come on and creates a beautiful atmosphere.

One of the reasons we love eating here so much is that their is plenty for everyone to do. The Green House is steps to the beach and there are swings, hammocks and a few fun games for the kids to play. During the high tourist season they host Friday night movies for the kids, which is great because the adults can enjoy their meal while the kids watch the movie. I suggest getting there about 4:00 to play at the beach for a little while, watch the sunset around 5:30 and then have dinner.

My yummy fish tacos. They’re pretty simple really but the combination of the slaw, crispy fish and avocado is heaven in my mouth.  If you are not a fan of mayonnaise, then you might not dig these.
