Popped in here one evening with some friends who were living in the area, and what a fun filled , load and good time was had by all. This night it was full of expat Cdns. All enjoying themselves! Even ran into friends of friends...
Sat at the circular bar and enjoyed an amazingly good, very reasonable dinner, with huge full glasses of wine, that were dirt cheap!
A big change from the norm when traveling around CR!
Kind of isolated, as are most of the eateries in the area, but worth the hike!

My favorite local pub. Delicious food with excellent fish and chicken dishes! Everyone raves about the Friday night Ribs too. Sally, Harlan and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. They service is always outstanding even when they are hit with a large crowd.

Harlan and his crew make going to La Perla's a memorable experience. Very friendly bar/restaurant with plenty of local flavor. The menu is somewhat limited but on Friday nights Harlan prepares his famous mouth watering rib dinner. If you are in the area of Surfside/Potrero on a Friday be sure to get to La Perla's by 5pm or they might already be out of ribs. La Perla's also has live music on occasion and the place is always packed. This is known as the Canadian hang out but there's also plenty of us from the US!! Adìos for now....

Manfred and Harland are the best! Six of us stopped there twice. Local bar with the coldest beer in town. Asian salad and cashew chicken were good. Yes the food service is slow but that is normal in the tropics.
