Seafood/fish dishes were excellent, especially shrimp and an octopus dish in a marinara sauce, but everything was tasty. Service was very good and the restaurant is attractive.
We went into Casa Esmeralda expecting fantastic food based on the reviews. We ordered the grilled chicken and the spicy pasta. While this place is supposedly known for their seafood fare, we were underwhelmed with the dishes that we ordered. Perhaps the seafood is better, but if you are not looking for seafood, perhaps look elsewhere.
I ate at Casa Esmeralda for the 3 nights I was in Samara and highly recommend it. The food was great - especially the seafood options and the crepe with nutella and ice cream was delicious! The staff are very friendly and welcoming... Definitely should visit!
Casa Esmeralda offers a good vaiarity of local and international dishes. The staff is very friendly and the chef knows what he's doing! We've tried the Pescado a la plancha and the Casado with chicken. Just delicious! Don't mind the athmosphaere and eat there!
The staff here is EXCELLENT! It is owned and ran by a local FAMILY.The food is superb. We had probably a dozen meals here.Be sure to visit. Anna is the cook AND owner...she is amazing.All meals were delicious. It is not on the water...but a MUST!
This is a treasure for all food lovers. The family who own this lovely establishment not only offer wonderful cuisine but great hospitality. Before you go try the to die for pineapple dessert.
The Spaghetti with Camerones (Shrimp) and aguacate (avocado) sauce is unbelievably good. We ate here 3 nights out of 6 and would have eaten there more if we had found it earlier. The chef let me watch her prepare our dinners the last couple of nights. Simple ingredients but she (Anna) is a master. All the pork dinners are wonderful.... More
It looks a little spartan from outside, but the food was good - particularly the tipico dishes, had great smoothies and good service both times we were there. Loved the pineapple in caramel sauce with ice cream dessert.
