We always try to go to nice places for lunch and dinner during our vacations. We love great experiences, not only the food (which is important as well obviously). This place exceeded our expectations, both with the food, service, pricing, everything was just great. Highly recommend this place. We actually went back the next day in order to try more... More

Just stopped for coffee mid morning. Sevice was slow considering there were very few customers. Coffee was not that good. Appears to want the boating and sailing clientale as prices somewhat on the high side.

On our initial visit we had a wonderful fun evening with our tour group and we had their amazing seafood platter. We enjoyed it SO much that we went back again as a couple and had, yes you guessed, another seafood platter! A lovely trendy open sided restaurant with a good atmosphere. There was even an hourly shuttle service to... More

Our last night in Quepos we had a lovely dinner here. The service was the best we had in Costa Rica, they absolutely made us feel special. The food was very tasty and the whole family agreed we'd come back in a heart beat next time we were in Quepos.

This place was almost perfect...if it had been overlooking the water it would have been great. It was in the middle of the marina area of Quepos...first place you see when you drive into the marina center. Great seafood!! I had the pulpo (octopus) and prawns and it was wonderful...tender and tasty!! Others in my group shared a seafood platter... More

Excellent service, delicious food, nice sunset view -- overall, a wonderful evening! We both enjoyed the ginger panko sea bass, and my accompanying salad was delightfully minty and refreshing (I definitely recommend the salad as one choice for the two sides that come with each entree). The complementary amaretto and fine chocolates were a welcome surprise at the end of... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Z's to celebrate our daughter's 11th Birthday. The food was very good and our server, Warner, provided great service. He was very personable, made great meal suggestions and brought our daughter slice of cheese cake for her birthday. They honored a special request for my daughter when she wanted the pasta with shrimp with... More

We always have the best time at Z's Gatro Bar. The owners definitely have it figured out. Great atmosphere, great prompt service, amazing food, and great prices... what else can you ask for? Be sure to ask about the vegetarian options, they are DELICIOUS, and don't miss out on a glass of homemade amaretto to finish it off.

A friend and I were in Costa Rica and this restaurant was recommended by the hotel. I ordered the scallops and they were cooked perfectly. The server was conscientious but didn't interrupt needlessly. At the end of the meal, we were given Limoncello, homemade, and it was just as good as I've had in Italy. Restaurant is in a nice...
