We ordered ceviche and a couple fish dishes. The views to the harbor are great, and the food was quite good, but not amazing. The server was prompt and friendly, the place was clean. We'd go back, but we found in general the town of Golfito a little un-inspiring. Probably because the big deal is the "grand duty free market" Gollo at the end of town. We're just not shoppers. But if you get stuck here it's a good place to eat.

Stopped by on the way back from Golfito. The menu seemed overpriced. Our group just had a beer. The waitstaff was friendly enough. Just not for us.

Excellent Burgers, the biggest and best in Central America, bar-none, possibly the states too!
Shrimp and rice is amazing, also! Great wait staff and excellent Happy hour! Rooms are kind of pricey but adequate. Great place to tie up your boat or hang out for a weekend. Internet signal is excellent and you will definitely enjoy your stay and the Fabulous Sunsets!

We are no strangers to Costa Rica, but this was our first time in Golfito. On recommendation, we ate at Banana Bay Marina twice and both meals were far over our expectations. Not only did the one and only lady chef in the kitchen do an incredible job our bartendress/waitress was extremely polite and never stopped working.
A must go for a nice dinner!

Our friends had some huge hamburgers with fries they loved. We had a fish plate grilled with garlic that was delicious. Nice relaxing atmosphere with the boats and docks.
