One of the most recognizable landmarks in Miraflores, La Rosa Náutica is a rambling Victorian-style building perched over the Pacific at the end of a long pier. Its gazebo-like dining rooms have spectacular views of the water, where surfers ride the breakers by day. Stop by in the late afternoon for a drink and a snack and you may be rewarded with a stunning sunset. Signature appetizers include grilled octopus, scallops sautéed with hot peppers, and a mixed fish, scallops,
and octopus cebiche (marinated in lime juice). Sea bass is served various ways, such as sautéed in a pernod sauce with scallops and shrimp, or grilled with a leek fondue sauce. The meat dishes include chateaubriand.
