Our brunch was so leisurely we thought our server had forgotten about us several times! Thankfully the view was enough to keep us distracted, and the food was very good. We sat outside overlooking the ocean on a lovely terrace. Prices are very reasonable and menu offers a great variety of very accessible, local dishes.

Thanks for taking the time to fill out a review. We appreciate your kind words and your pura vida attitude when the servers were caught up. As we have reduced staff during the quieter months, there can be times when our servers are caught in the back making drinks/smoothies etc.

Hope to see you back in the future!

We emailed to reserve a table for 3 couples on an evening. We went at 5 so it would still be light and we could enjoy the ocean view. They sat us down below at a table in a little hut overlooking the water. The view was breathtaking. The service was fantastic. My husband and I shared a bottle of wine--and it was lovely. Another couple ordered pina coladas and said they were the best they had. We started with the warm bread salad. We both loved it. I had the special that night--a tuna steak--and it was fantastic. Perfectly cooked and so flavorful. My husband had the Caribbean chicken. The chicken was great--but the rice that came with it was the real winner. The waiter was attentive and helpful when it came to recommendations. We had a wonderful time--and was hands-down our favorite dining experience while in Costa Rica.

Nice place, excellent service, great food, also for vegetarians. A little more expensive than an average pizzeria or local restaurant, but definately worth the money regarding the quality of the food. Note that this is a restaurant where mainly tourists visit, so no real Costa Rican feeling. But nice location, nice music and good food to find here.

We read great reviews, but unfortunately, our lunch was not satisfying... Breakfast and lunch have a combo menu, and there aren't very many options. It is very vegan/vegetarian focused, so it would be a great place for people that like those options. The coffee was great though. They allow their pets to wander around the restaurant, and though we love animals one of us is allergic to cats so this was a small problem.

Service was OK, we had to find our waitress after waiting around for the check. Maybe it's better for dinner but we wouldn't go back for lunch.

Thanks for taking the time to review the restaurant. We appreciate the kind words about the view and our coffee.

We are a pet friendly restaurant, who would be more than happy to remove any of our pets from the restaurant in the case of someone being allergic. Should you visit again in the future , please don't hesitate to let us know next time.
