We dined at this restaurant on March 30, 2017. The food was presented in a very attractive way. We found the staff very well trained and the service was very professional and friendly. What we did not like was the way some of the guest behaved. Very loud, with not consideration of other guests. We love background music when we... More

We went there for lunch. The atmosphere has a nice decor. My husband asked for a burger medium and it came back well done. He should have sent it back but he didn't. I had the blackened grouper sandwich and it was very good. Not the best I ever had but good. There serve garlic bread and bruschetta first which... More

This was the second time I've eaten at La Cocina, the first time being around ten years ago. Because I had such pleasant memories of that visit back then, I decided to give it another go while catching up with an old friend. We had a delightful lunch with a fine bottle of wine. I had a lobster stuffed avocado... More

I had my husband's 80th birthday party at La Cocina on Tuesday night and it was a night to remember. We were able to have the entire restaurant because there were 44 guests and two entertainers. Norberto and staff were fabulous. They went out of their way to make sure we had a perfect evening. The food was terrific. We... More

Mrs Too and Ben began planning this year’s vacation in Florida by deciding to spend two nights in St Augustine before heading southeast to our rented cabin. The combined package of Castillo Real Hotel and its in-house dining room Cocina International proved a compelling prospect and was written into our itinerary. We had visited St Augustine on two previous trips,... More

This restaurant is located in Castillo Real, a classy hotel on St Augustine Beach. It is truly first class. Excellent waitstaff, wine list, and menu. Their cooks are artists. We have been to this friendly place several times.

This is my first review of this restaurant. I've eaten there 25x over the years. I've never had a bad experience. As a southern Ca foodie it's difficult to get authentic Mexican food in north east fl. This is the only place I've been that's authentic and always consistent. My test for a solid Mexican restaurant is their shredded beef... More
