La Cocina International Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Excellent wait staff and service. Food was excellent as usual. Presentation was stunning.
Week might quiet dinner
Great food, service and atmosphere. Great for week night local dinner. Love the friendly people and location. A great find.

Our son wanted La Cocina for his graduation dinner. We had never been, as it was fairly new. We were amazingly surprised by the quality of food. Definitely five star for St. Augustine. Highly recommended for tha special night out. Looking forward to returning.
The decor of the restaurant is rather elegant which is a surprise for a beachside community. The food is delicious and displayed in a very attractive manner on the plate. The sauces for the dishes are distinctive and very tasty. The service was also excellent.
Wonderful ambience, excellent food!
We each chose a different entree and were not disappointed. The food was presented beautifully, the waiter was excellent at suggesting wine pairings for each dish, everything was superb!!! Will definitely return next time we are in town.

My husband and I both enjoyed the food,the salmon was lovely as well as the chicken. We couldn't find any dessert that caught our interest, but wouldn't doubt the quality and flavor. The hosts was friendly and informative about the food. The environment was warm but some what on the noisey side (I thought by the looks of the restaurant it would've been a little bit more quite).However, we enjoyed ourselves.
Excellent as Usual
We have eaten at this restaurant several times over the years, and it has become one of our favorites in the area. Always good food and a nice atmosphere without breaking the bank.
Love this place
Our Chicken and Osso Buco were delicious as were the wine options. However, our friends did not like the escargot or the Caesar salad. We loved the wait staff and wine selections along with the ambiance. We will definitely be back.

Enjoy the Portobello Carpaccio and Seafood Paella- skip the escargots and ribeye steak as they were not very good. Our server was excellent and they have a nice selection of wines.
Love this place!
Our "go to" Saturday date night place when in St.Augustine! Food is incredible, presentation impeccable, service perfect, wine list delectable and dessert....yummy! Don't miss out on giving this restaurant a try! You'll be coming back too!
Best of the Best
La Cocina is arguably the best restaurant in St. Augustine, a city noted for its fine dining. Service is always top notch. Food is always perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Just celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary with a night out at La Cocina and there isn't a better choice in town. Never rushed. And.....you avoid the parking problems of the city!
Very good restaurant
All seven people enjoyed their meals and the service was excellent. We will return. St. Augustine is a gem and you will need time to explore this picturesque city.
Another Great Experience
We stop here on our way to the Keys and back every year. We are never dissapointed. Food and service are excellent. Prices are high but not exorbitant. Overall a great place to have a nice dining experience.
La Cocina, St. Augustine Beach
Food fabulous. Wonderful presentation. George, our waiter, excellent. Will return.
Food was great, as always. Service impeccable. One of our favorite restaurants in a restaurant rich town.
Great spot on the beach!
We are St. Augustine residents who love this place. Food is great, service is great and the ambiance illustrates St. Augustine ancient culture. Great for the whole family!
Still has what it takes
We've been going to La Cocina for about 7-8 years and I have to say that even with an ownership change a couple years ago it is still in my top 5 restaurants in St. Augustine. Even though it's located in a hotel I get the impression that the majority of the people eating there are locals like myself looking for repeatable quality . It is a classy spot in a tourist town that seems sometimes like it has more restaurants than residences ;-)
Great food and service is so available😎

Excellent meal, impeccable service
We tried this restaurant to celebrate the end of a great winter vacation. We were pleasantly surprised. Don't always know if you can trust reviews on line but this one was a reL hit. Had the organge Ruffe was great. Also a really nice wine list. Very artistic presentation. Will definitely return
Wonderful dining experience.
Wonderful dining experience.
Our disappointment was in the quality of much of the food, including a very fatty filet and overcooked fish. So much was nice, especially the service and the ambiance and decor are very nice.

Disappointed. Based on reviews and pricing expected a better experience. This restaurant is located in a hotel and it feels like it. Menu is interesting but taste was bland. Had the lobster ravioli and red snapper. Ravioli was not good at all and snapper was boring and bland. Service was attentive and professional.

Nice place, great food but did not have a full bar. Would have liked to known in advance.
can only say it was an enjoyable time
Fine food as always. The only problem I find with La Cocina is the size, the tight space makes for loud dining when there are several large groups. I've been there many a time when the crowd was more couples and it was a pleasant time
Still Love La Cocina after all these years
We dined at La Cocina International last Saturday night. My husband had the special - an Amazonian fish we had never heard of, and I had the sea bass. We both loved our entrees as well as the brie en croute appetizer. We had a bottle of a nicely dry Riesling that we were able to taste before buying the bottle since it also came by the glass. We've been going here for years and it is still a great place to go. However, we did request a quiet table so we could have a conversation and unfortunately, we were seated next to a loud large group, separated only by a sheer curtain. Like so many restaurants now, there are not enough "soft" décor features to absorb the sound. Our one wish would have been to be seated far away from any large groups. The restaurant wasn't full, so this could have been done.
great birthday luncheon
we had a wonderful birthday lunch. The birthday cake came on a beautiful decorated cake. It was just perfect! Thank you so much
Great Valentine's Evening
Wonderful restaurant in a most unusual place. We will frequent La Cocina again and again.
Watch the Cooking Staff, Then Enjoy the Food
With our friends who were visiting from NJ, we went to La Cocina on a Saturday night. They are foodies who enjoy watching Top Chef. We sat at a table about 15 feet away from the counter where the staff was preparing the plates. Our friends were impressed with the creativity and professionalism of the kitchen staff. Our plates were great looking and our meal was delicious. Thanks, so much.
Best restaurant in St. Augustine
Pre-Valentine dinner was the best ever. The Lobster Bisque, Salmon, Snapper was to die for and the service throughout the evening was superb. No mixed drinks, but who cares with their extensive wine list. The neat and cozy dinning room off the Hotel lobby was the perfect recipe for an enjoyable evening.
Great place for good and conversation
Amazing food; presentation and taste amazing. Small restaurant tucked next to the lobby in the resort. Server was knowledgeable, helpful, and extremely attentive. Dinner was not rushed; had plenty of time to enjoy food. Will go again when in area.
Ambiance was great. Our waiter was just what you want a waiter to be. He anticipated our every need and was cordial and informative. The food was presented beautifully and tasted even better than it looked. Grey Cloud
La Cocina is excellent!
After visiting this restaurant a year ago I couldn't wait to return. The Pear salad is my favorite as the pear is poached in red wine. The Cabo Tuna appetizer was delicious with flavor and textures leaving you craving for more. We ordered the Monk fish special along with Almond Crusted Salmon and we both enjoyed sharing. Of course I had to try the Crème Brule which was topped with a raspberry sorbet and it was to die for!!! The service is always exceptional and I've met people who drive from Orlando just to dine here. We go out of our way when vacationing in FL just to stay and eat here! It's a 5 star restaurant!
In my opinion it is the best place in St Augustine to have outstanding seafood, "Frutos del Mar" is an excellent choice for seafood lovers like me, not only it taste delicious but also the presentation is great, it is a beautifully decorated plate, and not only this one but every plate has the same treatment. It is a very agreeable experience to have dinner in this place, the service is very friendly and on time. Everything seems to be prepared from scratch by excellent chefs and cooks.
The service was outstanding.
I would recommend for the beautiful food and the presentations. I will return again as lovely food is hard to locate.
La Cocina in Casa Real Motel
Best restaurant in St Augustine. The food is wonderful and the presentation is the best. The restaurant is a hidden gem. We have been there many times and tasted many dishes with always good, delicious food.
This is our favorite restaurant on the island. We return time and time again ... and are NEVER disappointed. When friends visit, there is no question regarding our recommendation for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Fantastic experience. Javier our waiter ...
Fantastic experience. Javier our waiter was awesome. Great service. Everything we ate came to the table and was delicious. We started with the Lobster Bisque which my son said was the best he ever had. Shrimp ceviche and the pear salads again were outstanding. My wife had the salmon and I had the veal chop which was a special. Dessert was just as good and the espresso was as the rest of the meal top notch. If you are in St Augustine do not miss this place.
The meal was very delicious and tasteful ...
The meal was very delicious and tastefully presented with each serving. We enjoyed our quiet romantic setting and the service was wonderful as well.
Fabulous Christmas dinner!
We couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate Christmss! The food was exceptional, the service right on point and everyone was so genuinely friendly. Would go back in a heartbeat!
