Excellent 'bar food' and great Happy Hour drinks from 11 am- 7 PM. We ended eating there a few times during our stay and enjoyed the food with the understanding it is primarily a sports bar. For me the highlight was the frozen mango margaritas.

Had a tasty dinner with tasty $4 happy hour drinks! We did have to wait awhile once seated to get served but we are on holidays so not too big of a deal. Lots of choices on the menu and good portions.

We recently enjoyed two meals at the Vi Lounge. The Tempura Shrimp were amazing...huge! My husband and I shared the meal and were pleasantly full afterwards. the next night we went back for pizza. It was very good as well. I would also recommend the Strawberry Margaritas...yummy! The music and dancing was also fun :) The place is very busy... More

Long long wait for service. Don't order nachos in Costa Rica. The next table's pizza looked good but they said they waited over an hour for it.

Stopped in for a drink at night, was quiet but was packed earlier in the day. Bar tender friendly and drinks came fast. What more could you ask for.

We dropped by a couple times, during non-peak hours. First time was to get a drink, coffee and plate of fries - all of which were decent. The second time, we weren't served and ended up checking out another place. Very cool setting, we'd go back for sure!
