THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Costa Restaurant Review: Owner Frank Valdéz is Cuban, but his taste in seafood runs to Mexican. Freshness rules. Raw oysters quiver with savory sweetness and are wicked cheap at $5.95 for a dozen. The fish flautas (actually fish tacos), the ceviche and the No. 27 (shrimp and mussels on extra savory rice with a light beurre blanc) are big draws. Shrimp in a butter sauce or a la diabla are robust and tasty. Most of the fare is quite reasonably priced, though you can splurge and spend at least $50 on live lobster. Beer is the only alcohol served, but you can bring your own wine and there is no corkage fee.
