Océano 56 it's a unique restaurant in Puerto Escondido. The design of the interior is as good as the design of the menu, making in this way a unique experience. You can go there to hang out with friends, and if you don't have, probably Rafa (the chef) will become one. The options in the menu are very delicious, my favourites are the baja fish tacos and one the chef has called "the rockstar taco", there is also an octopus taco that is becoming one of the people's favourite. Futhermore and very important..... THEY HAVE COLD BEER !.

My wife and I were lucky enough to visit Puerto Escondido two days after this restaurant opened. We first stopped by for a late afternoon bite after a "hard day" at Playa Carazalillo, about a 3 minute walk from the top of the steps. The staff is extremely friendly and within minutes Chef Rafa came out to greet us. He is extremely passionate about his restaurant and food. He told us where the food was sourced, how he cooked and gave us valuable tips for our upcoming visit to Oaxaca city (where he previously cooked). We stopped by Oceano 56 every night thereafter for at least a drink and snack and were met with the same hospitality.
I haven't even gotten to the food yet, the ceviche and aguachile was fresh, excellent and huge, and this is coming from US portions. As it was our first visit to Oaxaca we had not had a tlayuda yet, and I think Chef Rafa's version with ribeye ruined the different variations we tried during our trip (in the best way). The baja style fish tacos are also not to be missed. All were excellent value.
As it is Oaxaca, please try hibiscus infused mezcal (loved by my wife who is not a mezcal drinker) and the herbal house mezcal.
But mostly please enjoy the food, atmosphere and friendliness of Chef Rafa. Please tell him Rose and Mark from Chicago say hello.

Have been a fan of Rafa Alvarado´s cooking for a while. Just visited this place a couple weeks ago, it had a great atmosphere with a cool roof top. The kitchen is open so you can see Rafa preparing a delicious grilled octopus or some sea food tacos.

There are tons of reviews already for this great spot. I'd say one suggestion is to catch sunset here. Excellent view. And the burritos are great. The vegetarian one and the shrimp one are the best. The owner is the son of the owner if another great restaurant in Puerto: Estrellas Gormet on the Rinconada. And he has gone through formal culinary schooling, so you know it's good : ).
