“Must have come on the wrong night”
Reviewed 22 March 2013 via mobile

After reading the reviews of the great food esp the seafood we decided to give the place a try. Big mistake they had a live band and little or no selection of food. They had pizza chicken/fish taco or burger. There was only one person taking orders and serving. The man looked like he was wiped out. I assume they changed there menu due to the band although I don't understand why. We won't be back... It's ashame we had considered staying there on our next visit now we won't even come back for lunch you only get one chance to make a good first impression. FYI we come Costa Rica often

“Classy Spot”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

A place to really relax, tropical, mellow, beach side vibe. Very good food, accommodating, friendly staff. During the daytime for lunch, a break from the heat and a couple cold drink, lunch, recommend it.

“good food”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

out of 5 days in Dominical, we ate here 3 nights. Food is simple and really well done, the ambience is easy and has a good feel, and the staff is very nice (they even kept our daughter baby doll, and the next time we returned they hand it back to her!)

“Amazing fish tacos, friendly service”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

We were staying down the road at a rental house, and walked the the restaurant. We went later both times (around 8 I believe, and were the only ones there. We were welcomed with smiles. I ordered the fish tacos...amazing. My husband had their special of Chicken Cuerdon Blue - which was his favorite meal of the entire trip. Our friends enjoyed their Tuna and Mahi Mahi specials as well. Not a bad meal had there. Plus the two Golden Retrievers who greeted us made it even better :)

“Great Place for Dinner”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

We ate here one night not expecting much. We order the tuna, which was fresh and fabuluous! We both agreed that the seared tuna was the best tuna we have ever had. It tasted like a well aged, rare filet mingion. Service was excellent as well. I would be surprised if anyone ever got a bad meal here.
