Drank and ate here a couple of times while watching NFL playoffs. The staff are awesome and the owners are down to earth great people. We had a blast both nights as the place turns into a party. The food is fantastic, you get big portions and the prices are great. I have no idea why anybody would complain about any facet of this place? A guy we met caught some fish on a charter and they cooked it up for us no questions asked. It was great! The hotel grounds are peaceful and immaculate. Don't hesitate to check this place out.

we had lunch at the Great Waltini's. Nice atmosphere in very quiet area. I had one of the best club sandwiches I've ever had. My wife's salad with chicken was adequate. Service was not quick, but was on par with the rest of Costa Rica.

We had tuna salad and a empanada which looked better than it tasted and was more expensive than it needed to be. For two of us we spent 80 bucks on a dinner that could have been 30 at other restaurants at Grande.....with less weird service and better food. This place is trying too hard.

We are honored to be serving the Playa Grande area as we begin our 11th season here.
I would like to respond to your over-exaggeration in pricing and vague complaint of "weird" service. An Ahi Tuna Salad costs $17 and we do not serve empanadas. Perhaps you meant our enchiladas? If so, the cost is $14. As for service, we are a friendly place and popular for birthday, anniversary, and other special occasions. If you prefer a more "detached and reserved" service, just let your server know.

This was our second trip to this restaurant. The first time was 6 years ago. The food is still amazing. Our friends were in town and we drove over from Playa Potrero. It was so worth it. We started out with happy hour margarita's at the bar and then enjoy our meal in the relaxing dinner area. The atmosphere is wonderful. We will definitely return again !
