“Great place to relax and eat in Mal Pais”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We ate at this place twice during our stay over the Christmas holiday. We had pizza which was really good as well the lemon drink. We highly recommend both. The place is both casual yet somewhat upscale at the same time. We sat at a small table for two which was romantic. They also have a bar and a pool table.
Worth the walk from where we were staying

“Fresh food and live music”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Mary's is deservedly popular and busy. The atmosphere is buzzing and there was live music the night we ate there.
The food was great...fresh fish, and especially the home grown fresh vegetables from their own farm, a real treat. Definitely give this a try if you are staying in Mal Pais.

“Delicious, Fresh, Organic Food, Excellent Service”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We were staying in Mal Pais and noticed Mary's Organic Farm as we drove by one day. A little further up the road was the restaurant, serving wood oven pizza and other meals (according to the website, "The menu is centered around whatever is happening in the ocean and on the farm"). The idea of an organic fresh-from-the-farm meal was enticing, so we went in one evening to try it out. We were very impressed! The waitress was very friendly, and the ambiance was relaxed yet elegant. First, we tried guaro, a traditional Costa Rican distilled liquor. They had a nice drink menu, and I'm sure the cocktails were excellent, but I opted for red wine while my fiance had a beer. Then we ordered a vegetable pizza, and it was delicious! We finished the entire large pizza, a first for us. The prices were reasonable and the food very high quality. We will definitely be back should we find ourselves in the area again!

“Great vegetables”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

We ate there one time.
The food was just what we wanted.
The vegetables were excellent (my wife is a vegetarian).
All the food was definitely good quality.
Describing this place as a bar with food doesn't do it justice.
