Gringo Curt's is a small dining spot, with tables overlooking the forest and visited by a large number of vibrant birds during the day. Fish is the focus, prepared in 3 ways and in very healthy proportions. And tasty!

We stayed in Drake Bay for a few days and Gringo Curt’s was a fantastic way to end our trip! We tried all 3 options (filet, pasta, and wraps) and they were all amazing. Definitely our favorite meal in Drake Bay!

Curt provides huge portions of 3 seafood dishes (and one vegetarian) with whatever is caught locally that day. He opens when the fish arrives and closes when he's out. His smoothies are the best! He is also happy to chat about the area and gave...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!
