We had lunch here for a couple of times, and the food is really good at a resonable price! Try all their local dishes, so good!! The restaurant is perfect located near the entrance to the Cahuita National park. The service is most of the time very good, even though it tends to get crowded some days.

Most likely it's a nice place for evenings as well, but we were in Cahuita in the end of November, so it was not crowded by tourists yet and Surf Caribbean were totally empty at the evenings.

Decent grub for the price. Not something to write home about, but nevertheless a good option not far from the Park's entrance, with a broad menu, large portions and a chilled ambiance.

My wife and I ate here on our second night in Cahuita. My Calamari was cooked so well and was absolutely delicious! Great atmosphere as it's right in town but down the street a bit. Was a very peaceful dinner, she was lovely and we met a really nice Australian couple for the first time there. Our goal was to eat somewhere different everynight....super glad we ate here!

Great local restaurant, located on the Main Street in Cahuita. The staff are very good natured and willing to explain the menu and differences in the types of food. We ate lunch here a number of times and always had a good quality value meal. As with most restaurants here if you arrive after one or two tables are occupied you could have a bit of a wait to receive your food, however, remember why your in Costa Rica, chill and its worth the wait. Would rate this restaurant as one of the best local food restaurants in the area.

Travel can be hard for vegetarians, but we also had visitors that were Vegan, so finding places to eat , and eat well, became a greater challenge. We wanted to give them a flavor of the Caribbean side of our adopted country, so we tried Surf Caribbean Food. We got there a little early , but the owner actually opened early to seat the 5 of us. Restaurants in Cahuita are the very definition of 'casual' - all small, open air and kinda funky - the whole town has a nice , backwater feel. We had variations of 'Beans and Rice' dishes, most with sides of plantain and yuca - all worth the trip. The food was Caribbean and the beer was cold, and the price was incredible - about $40 for five people including drinks. Made sure this is a dinner stop.
