Ocean Cafe and Dinner

Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 January 2014

I think there are a LOT of good restaurants in the area. Ocean Cafe is one of the very best! We ate Sandra's chicken twice. It is so tender and flavorful. It literally falls off the bone. Milton is a delightful host to visit with. Overall, this is a wonderful restaurant with excellent food, the prices are comparatively cheap, and the staff is the nicest in town.

Milton and Sandra and both incredible cooks that bring together the VERY BEST of Caribbean and Soul Food. Once we found this gem we ate very meal there, and the one breakfast we missed, we regretted. Milton and Sandra, you are both GEMS! In my opinion, go to Puerto Viejo simply to visit Ocean Cafe. And bring cards, Milton likes to play! :)

We tried several different restaurants while in Puerto Viejo but Ocean Cafe was by far the best. Have the Grilled Chicken. Probably the best chicken meal I have ever had in my life. We even went back for breakfast on our last day the rice and beans were wonderful. The pancakes and french toast cooked perfectly. The couple that own the restaurant are very enjoyable to talk with. Keep in mind everything is made fresh right when you order it. We were a party of 7 so you can imagine it took a bit of time. But you are on vacation and really have no schedule. The food is more then worth the wait. Once you go here you will have trouble eating anywhere else. Also the best value in town. 7 of us ate dinner for about $60 US. Much cheaper then anywhere else we found in town.
