Restaurant Aurita

Seafood in Cojimíes

Overlooking the fishing boats bobbing on the water, this simple waterside restaurant serves delectable Manabí seafood. It’s famous for the huge shrimp native to the area, but also prepares tasty ceviche, concha (shellfish) and encocado de pescado (fish cooked in a rich, spiced coconut sauce). The vibe is casual: dine at plastic picnic tables and dig your heels into the sand.
