Lunch at “The Point” May 3, 2014
It was afternoon on a beautiful day in Puerto Viejo. I found a cool spot at the entry to Puerto Viejo next to the Caribbean Sea to have lunch. The restaurant features U.S.A. Style “bar food” not usually available at the Tico sodas. It is reminiscent of a “TGI Fridays”.
There are satellite screen TV’s with sports channels on inside. The restaurant attracts “Gringo” (mostly North American) guests. While waiting to be served, I heard one Tico family coming to use the beach grumbled angrily about the restaurant being in the “public zone.” The first fifty meters of property landward from the sea is supposed to be undeveloped and un-altered, but the laws are notably lax in this part of Costa Rica.
Outside dining was under a Beach Almond Tree. The waiter was young, good looking well-mannered and professional. He took my drink order promptly, brought the menu and helped me decide between the chicken taco and the hamburger. I personally would have enjoyed the presence of a host with personality!
He (and most everybody else) recommended the hamburger. It WAS a good hamburger! The price was a little high for the back-packers set…hamburger and french-fries and a non-alcohol beer (tax and tip included) came to $15.50 USD.
