This is a wonderful restaurant for seafood/fish that ALWAYS has people at any hour of the day. The food is consistently excellent. Only problem is that it would be somewhat "off-the-beaten path" for a tourist. . . but definitely worthwhile. Have been there many many times and still enjoy going there for a very good meal.

Delicious food, great service, fair priced considering the quality... Food comes out fast. Highly recommend the ceviches, mariscos soup, fried shrimp with tartar sauce... It all goes great with the fun chilled bar feel and the local beers

This place has great sea food and is not expensive at all, the place is clean and service is good, it does tend to get a little too crowded though.

I had dinner here with my host family and friends while I was in Costa Rica. It's a popular local restaurant, the portions are HUGE and the meals are affordable. A lot of the food is deep fried but the shrimps were quite fresh and flavorful.
It gets very crowded and noisy, but it's a family restaurant.
