Really good ice cream and waffle cones. Little expensive but very tasty! Only accepted cash which could be a problem for many because two scoops is almost $5.00.

La Cocina International Restaurant

La Cocina International Restaurant offers intimate Fine Dining with a Latin Flair in a Casual Atmosphere

Reviewed By William W - St. Petersburg, Florida

We are visiting the area from St. Petersburg. I did extensive research on both St. Augustine and St. Augustine Beach restaurants before deciding upon this place. Unfortunately, from all the reviews, it appears that a good majority of restaurants in town are overpriced, food not worth the money, tourist traps and even locals mention "not as good as it used to be". More reasons why we selected La Cocina.

Earlier in the day we walked Old Town and stopped into The Tini Martini Bar for cocktails mid-afternoon. Very small, six stool bar area so we were talking to the couple next to us who are locals and the guy works in the restaurant industry. When he asked where we were planning to have dinner, we told him La Cocina. He said oh no you must try the Black Fly. Always great. La Cocina is very "iffy". We thanked him and after leaving discussed our options and decided to stick with our research and go to La Cocina. Glad we did!

It's a small, intimate dining room of about 30 tables located in a non-chain, local hotel. But don't let that discourage you.

For appetizers, we had the Ceviche and the Spanish Octopus. Both were fresh and excellent!

My husband loves Bouillabaisse and is very particular about the taste of the broth. While the restaurant calls it Bouillabaisse, it is more of a Seafood Stew served over pasta. Still he wanted it but asked the server if there was any way he could taste the broth otherwise he wouldn't order it. Our server was more than accommodating and brought him some broth to taste. He loved it so ended up having that while I ordered the huge Grilled Rib Eye Steak very rare and it came perfectly cooked with a good size portion of mashed potatoes and al dente cooked, fresh Asparagus.

We totally enjoy our meal. Service was attentive and prompt.

For everything we ate plus a moderately priced bottle of wine, the bill came to only $120 before tip. NOTE: Look in local tourist magazines for a $10 off coupon on a purchase of $60 or more.

If in the area, definitely try it!

Reviewed By Destination_Vacay - Saint Johns, Florida

GREAT spot for Yummies! We were pleasantly surprised by the delicious breakfast pies! We had a the Vejja - sweet potato, broccoli, spinach, cheese and egg - and a more traditional egg pie with bacon and pepper on top. Great drip coffee and expresso - fun vibe and SUPER kind and enthusiastic baristas and servers! We were pleasantly surprised and loved the vibe and outdoor patio - huge plus!!!!

Rita's Italian Ice

Reviewed By Olena S - Orange Park, Florida

Although I love their gelato and water ice, especially the Mango, it is overpriced. The cups have gotten smaller too. The large now looks like a medium. Prices go up and size goes down. Friendly service but spending over $10 for two waterices and some ice cream is a bit crazy. I've always loved Rita's but don't know how people do it with 4-5 children at these prices. I guess they just can't afford to go.

Burrito Works Taco Shop

Reviewed By dolomoto - Savannah GA

There was no seasoning of any kind that I could detect on my chicken burrito bowl. Plain white rice, plain black beans and flavorless chicken (where's the cumin, garlic, chili powder, etc?). I thought maybe mine was a mistake but my partners was similarly flavorless. Sure there's a fair amount of condiments but we were missing the requested #10 sauce (we had it to go so weren't driving back out). It seems the other folks who rave about the taste may have never had food with proper seasoning. But, there's a great selection of bottle beer and the prices are fair.

Mango Mango's Caribbean Grill & Bar

Reviewed By autumnotr - Auburn Hills, Michigan

By far, the best food and service on St. Augustine beach! Mango’s is clean, friendly, fast and delicious! We had terrible luck at several restaurants in the area due to awful service and dirty, sticky eating areas. My family of four stumbled upon Mango’s and have already eaten here twice this week because they have so much variety and we couldn’t wait to come back for more! The ahi tuna tacos were excellent and flavorful! The hamburgers are huge and fresh-loaded with a variety of toppings! The crabby patty sandwich was delicious! And they are famous for the corn cakes, which we tried as an appetizer the first night, and my son ordered as an entree with jerk chicken the second night. It is so interesting and flavorful-you’ll love it! My husband wants to go back one more time before the vacation week ends!

Reviewed By Linda A - Rochester, New York

My husband and I found La Taza in a small strip mall on A1A South by the intersection of A1A South and A1A Beach Blvd. near the Winn Dixie. And what a find... this is not an ordinary coffee shop. They serve breakfast and lunch. The decor is contemporary, bright, fresh and new. The service was excellent and the food delicious. My husband enjoyed a nice glass of Spanish wine with his Pavo Y Queso Brie sandwich which consisted of Turkey breast, brie, Granny Smith apple, fig spread and Dijon mustard. We will be certainly return to try some more of the interesting items on the menu and maybe share one of the homemade desserts. Don't drive by.

Reviewed By dbrown46 - Vienna, VA

We visited during the slower season after Spring Break but before summer season and we got a table outside upstarts right away, The four of us each ordered a different seafood entree and each was a generous portion with lots of seafood, Service was attentive and friendly. There was a good wine list and overall the price was extremely reasonable.
