“Good food in an open air restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014 via mobile

I liked the fish casado and my husband liked the red snapper. The service was pretty slow but I've read this is normal for the restaurants in the area. It was difficult to get the staff attention to ask for the bill.

“Good Consistency, cheap beers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

My wife and I returned here a few times during our short stay in Cahuita. The food was consistently good for the price, we had the nachos, ceviche, shrimp with Caribbean sauce and a hamburger. The beer and wine was cheap as well. The staff was friendly and did well to explain what some of the items were on the menu that we had questions on.

“Best place for a good lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

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.

“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

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.

“Wonderful 2nd Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

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!
