The atmosphere is wonderful - it's very relaxed and has a beautiful view of the ocean. Kevin, our server was very nice and knowledgeable about the area. He was the only server on but he still made time to chat with us - to share his knowledge about Costa Rica, joke around with us, he was overall a very nice guy. The fish tacos are unbelievable.

Great location next to one of the surf schools. Most of the tables are on the beach. The grilled avacados are to die for!! My husband loved the fish tacos. Service can be slow but very relaxed. That's why we are on vacation to slow down. Had lunch here many times during our stay.

This place was ok...not great. The food was mediocre, service was slow but our waitress was really nice. Beer was standard. Fun being on the sand tho!

I ate here many times during my recent trip to Samara. The fish tacos are yum! And the Guaro Sours are even better (local cocktail) We dubbed this place "the vortex" because we would stop in for lunch and stay for the afternoon. Service can be slow, but it's fine because it's right on the beach. Just be sure to order your next guaro sour before your current one is empty. :)

Breakfast tacos - to die for!! Super yummy food - we ate here 3 times and were not disappointed once. Can't beat the atmosphere - right on the sand, with beautiful Playa Samara steps away. The drinks are delicious and the food is, too. Outstanding! The waiters spoke English, too, which was nice for us.
