“We ate there a LOT!”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

We stayed at the hotel for a whole week and ate here many times. It was simple, but good. It was convenient for us and the service was excellent. We thought it was a good value. We went to another area restaurant, which was fine, but not as good, so we came back here. We ate just about everything on the menu, eventually. Once, the dessert, 'Cream Catalan' was divine, another time, just ok, but still good. The beef tenderloin (med. rare) with gorgonzola was EXCELLENT! My experience with the paella was OK, not great. But, it IS HUGE! One time, the rice was so delectible...I don't believe we ever had such tasty rice in my whole life! I never knew that rice could BE that good! Is Costa Rican rice a unique kind? The 'corvina', fresh sea bass, was very tasty. There is a very pretty view. You can see a small patch of sea and hear the surf. The pool is beautiful, with lovely trees pruned in beautiful umbrella shape. People watching is fun. It is extremely quiet there most evenings. The staff is very pleasant and cheerful.

“Nice spot...”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

We spent a day at Playa Hermosa and were recommended to this restaurant by our cab driver. (We came from Coco) As we approached from the beach we stopped to rinse the sand from our feet so as not to track it into the restaurant...we were told that the tap was for the use of guests only. It was a comment that could have sent us walking on, but we decided to overlook it and came in. The surroundings were quite lovely with a breeze from the water, and the food was good. Nice spot after being on the beach and to have a drink.

“Paella”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

The Paella at Sabor Mediterraneo came highly recommended. We ate there on 18 Jan 2013 and were very disappointed with it. The Paella was prepared in a shallow skillet and the rice over half of the bottom was burnt - black, charred and stuck to the pan. The sea food was also over cooked. Sad that the meal was not what had been portrayed. The Gazpacho was very good. The ambiance was great, the service was good.

Estimado cliente, gracias por venir a nuestro restaurante. En cuanto a su opinión de nuestra paella, me gustaría aclararle lo siguiente: la paella fue servida en una paellera especial para este plato. Cuando se cocina una paella durante su tiempo de cocción que suele ser de 18 minutos es normal y que todos saben que la parte inferior de la misma quede más adherida a la superficie provocando ello que el grano quede más crujiente, tostado o pegado, y como se conoce en España con el término de "socarrat". Incluso hay mucha gente que es con lo que más disfruta comiendo esta parte crujiente de la paella. Creo recordar que yo mismo se lo expliqué en persona durante su estancia cuando me comunicó su opinión personalmente. Al igual que le apliqué un descuento en su cuenta. Le invito a leer en el siguiente link: http://www.directoalpaladar.com/cultura-gastronomica/la-paella-a-fuego-por-favor

“Authentic Spanish cuisine”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

Cooked to order, tasty seafood Paella; sea bass in a tomato-wine sauce; pasta. Peaceful, relaxing, open-air setting. Generous portions, moderately priced. Worth the wait.

“Watch your step!”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

Watch your step, in the street there a big drainage hole with no cover, over 5 foots deep. Really dangerous for any one. I had try to advise the owner of the place: he answer is not his business.

I understand it's in the street but having a commercial place it would be appreciate if the owner have some respect for his client!
