We were told to go there from by brother who lives in Costa Rica and the food was amazing, The whole Snapper was great and the Avocado stuffed Shrimp was excellent and great service to go with it.

This is a great choice especially if you want to get out of your resort. Good food at good prices in an open air setting.

“Great Happy Hour Stop”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

We stopped several times over the course of a week and would have the ceviche (delicious), other assorted appetizers, and cocktails at the bar with Jose the bartender who delivered great service! He spoke great English for our broken Spanglish! Easy going stop, with great service.

“Hit and Miss”
Reviewed 17 March 2013 via mobile

Pleasant atmosphere and pleasant staff with good service but the bottom line is the food was totally hit and miss. 3 of us ordered dinner, mixed seafood plate was very good, sea bass was ok, whole snapper was ok. Desserts were actually very, very good. I don't regret going but I would not return.
