“Closed for season”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

Disregard my rating because we didn't get to eat here -- there was a big poster sign out front that it was closed for the season. (The sign said the actual months, something like May until November?)

“Good eats when the going gets tough!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

At the beginning of April i traveled to costa rica and stayed at a hotel where they offered an all inclusive plan. Let me tell you, a couple of days in this place saved my stomach. There was nothing like filling up on a poutine and a Philly cheese steak after days of rice and beans. It was great! May have been a little pricey, but take into consideration that the products they are using are not all local... they need to be flown in. Lovely Canadian couple with a great idea!

*** 10 minute walking distance from Villas Sol Hotel & Beach Resort

“A delightful find for a great meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013 via mobile

This is a very simple eating place with picnic benches just across the road from the beach in Hermosa and simply the best value we had during a 2 week stay in Costa Rica. The owners (who are hands-on owners as cooks and counter operators) are Canadian who a simply a delight to talk to. Their range of smoked meats were spectacular and our group of 4 had a selection of menu items amongst us that we shared. It wasn't Friday so we couldn't get ribs, but the owner pulled them out of the fridge and we got to see them marinating for cooking the next day. We were invited to bring in beer or wine from the grocery next door because they were only licensed to serve sodas. I had a rubin sandwich which was on special, and it was quite a surprise to get great corned beef, sauerkraut, and wonderful rye bread down there. Everything was hot and fresh. It was a great experience and worth the drive from Ocotal.
