La Mata Rosada

La Mata Rosada Review

The French chef/owner, Yvonne Bastian, has been luring local expats and foodies since the late 1990s. Tables are set with white linens in an all-white interior with ceiling fans to keep you cool; breezes waft in from the bay across the street. Some excellent choices are mahi mahi in coconut sauce with a mango chutney or a mix of grilled lobster and other shellfish. Begin with the ceviche, a specialty of this port town, made with mahi mahi and conch. Go local or international, order the creole shrimp or a substantial salad, and you should leave satisfied. Desserts, like the chocolate terrine, are presented with pride.
