Description: The Point...A different kind of Sports Bar.Sure we have sports on all (7) of our T.V's all the time...and sure we have hot wings and (U.S.D.A. beef) burgers...and sure we have ice cold beer and micro brew on tap, but did you know that we have local Caribbean cuisine made by the best chef south of Nicaragua? Check out our open air restaurant/bar located on Black Beach, steps to the Caribbean Sea. A local hangout where tourists and locals come together to have a good ol' time. So on your next visit to Puerto Viejo, top on by and say hi ya'll (before Paradise, we lived in New Orleans). We will keep a seat warm, a cold beer, your favorite game on, and a fun time waiting for you!

Reviewed 17 June 2014

I love this place. Has an amazing view. Best burger I ate in all Central America. The staff there works very hard and does a great job. The owners are great. Popeyes is a bit rough around the edges. But it is a pirate bar. BONUS BEST BEER in the town.

“Awesome place, awesome people”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

During 4 nights in town, we went to this place 3 separate times, either to eat, drink, or just hang out during some down time. The owners and staff were hospitable and fun, the patrons were willing to share their table and just hang out. Great atmosphere, great people great food and craft beers.

“Never heard a bad word about the hamburgers here”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

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.

“One of the best Burgers in Costa Rica”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

My husband and I were introduced by a friend to try The Point Sports bar & Grill and we just can't
stop going back. We first tried the hamburgers and they were so delicious and cooked to perfection,
we then tried the ceviche,the chifrijo. Their sushi on Mondays is to die for it is so different from your
regular sushi and so innovated with abundance of flavors.
We also love the craft beer on tap.The service is very good.
