The owner are cooking and serving the food. They are really nice and welcoming. We went there the 2 nights we were in Uvita and the food was delicious. The stuffed avocado; palmito salad and paella were amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant!

This was the dining highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. Highly recommend the sangria and paella. Great atmosphere. The restaurant is owned and run by a husband (chef) and wife (waitress) team and their service and appreciation for customers is second to none. **...More

Nice service in a hidden place, a very family business in the midst of the local green jungle near the beach.

We had a couple of Tapas and Sangria. The sangria was pretty good and the Tapas were also very tasty but the service was just great. Chef asks exactly how your like every dish which gives a very personal touch.
