We stopped in on several occasions mainly to hear the band playing. The first time we just had drinks and the next visit we had a burger...both were okay. Service tends to be slow when busy....but everyone is on Tico Time! The music was great and we did get in a dance or two!

After a day of kayaking, which left us muddy and tired (but we had a great time!) we decided a pizza and a cold beer was just the thing. The restaurant is open air, on the beach and casual enough that even though we were muddy we didn't look to out of place! The cold beer hit the spot, but the pizza was excellent. My husband and I each ordered our own, since we wanted to take leftovers with us and we have different tastes. I had the Neapolitan and it was so good, I almost ate the whole thing in one sitting! He had the pepperoni and agreed it's one of the best around. The service was also good and the atmosphere fun. As others have said, there are lots of dogs, but since we love animals that was not an issue.

We had tried to get to this restaurant once before and we walked in and no one was around and the place looked closed. We decided to try again last evening for dinner and I am so glad we did. The menu was smaller but all four of us had amazing food. We had a flavours we have tasted. The service was good. The Mahi Mahi special was over the top in flavour and presentation. We also had Chicken cordon Blue, Shrimp Pasta and fish of the day grilled (happened to be Mahi Mahi as well). All of these meals were amazing in regards to both flavour and presentation. Our only complaint was that the seating was uncomfortable (cement table and cement chairs with no backs), but the food outweighed the seating.

We had a quick lunch there and enjoyed our meal of seafood pasta in white sauce. We were the only customers in the place but there were plenty of dogs. We loved 'em and our son enjoyed petting them, but if having several dogs sitting under your table isn't your thing, this might not be the place for you. I'd imagine it's a whole different scene on a Friday night with live music though. Still, would recommend the restaurant.

Open air restaurant in a cool area by the beach. I had seared Ahi Tuna and it was SO GOOD and fresh. Cool murals/paintings on the wall. Very cool place with a tropical, Costa Rican feel.
