I really enjoyed our dinner in "La Hierbita", it was the best place we found in Santa Cruz. The meals are tasty and the waiter recommended us the perfect wine. We were really happy there.

This local eatery is hidden within sight. The owners have their own fishing boat and go out for fresh catch each day. They have excellent local seafood such as gueldes (smaller fish than sardines, usually served fried) chicharro, (the local 🐟) plus the "veneno" cheese...More

So tired from so much rubbish food readily available everywhere we were so blessed to find this perfect local little back street restaurant! The menu was not very descriptive, I'm sure everything on it was as good as what we ordered. We chose the special...More
