This is a pleasant place in the middle of nature and with a rustic style where you will feel like nowhere else, the fusion of our typical food and seafood makes us unique and the service first class. The comments speak for themselves.

I should have listened to some of the other reviewers and steered clear of this place. Although there were no monkeys there that didn’t bother me as you never know when wild life will be around. I went there with my wife knowing the primates...More

Cool vibe....very friendly staff. Prices a bit dear ($5 US for Corona) Watching the monkeys overhead while sipping that Corona....priceless

A must visit if staying at the Riu's. Short walk along the beach, great host, not cheap but not madly expensive, special beer - cocktail plus corona- an experience !

The Monkey Bar was just down the beach from the resort we were staying at. The drinks are fantastic and the owner was very hospitable. Such a fun place to hang out on a hot afternoon.

We are glad we discovered this little restaurant while staying at the Riu. It gets busy so be prepared to wait once you order. It's an open air place (and most are in Costa Rica!). Good food, good beer, and you get to see monkeys!!!
