Good place for a six o'clock drink and dinner. Service was good although the language was a little hard to understand. The staff was eager to interpret. The prices were good and we found that to share a meal was adequate

The best mojito I ever had and a delicious 4 cheese and mushroom appetizer while we watched the sunset! Don't forget to bring bug spray though if you go in the evening because the mosquitoes were definitely out and about.

We had drinks first in a setting on the beach with nice couches and sunset. We convened to our outdoor table near by and had an enjoyable meal with excellent service. Good Costa Rican cuisine. Drinks a bit pricey.

Attentive service. Good food and pleasant ambiance. The sunset view is very pretty. You may wish to use insect repellent if you are dining on the beach.
