So, I wanted a burger! We had been in Costa Rica a week now and it was our last night. I was over seafood and beans and rice. So, our app said this was the place for it! And it was! GREAT BURGER! Great staff! We sat at the bar and ordered way too much food. We also got the... More

The 30 minute wait for a table at this 12 table restaurant was worth it. The fish was wonderful, better than wonderful, the view before and just after sunset spectacular. Can't say enough for this after dark intimate space. Service great, friendly, and did i mention the food, and the smoothie perfect con o sin leche.

If you have time, let's go! But you can wait for an hour…. Just for a salad. Don't forget to order when you sit. The price doesn't include taxes or the service, so it's going to cost a lot at the end. Never again.

Good wine offering. We went for the daily special; yellowfin tuna with shrimp, coconut & tumeric sauce, as recommended by waiter. Best meal of... More
