This is our second trip to Los Suenos and this restaurant is a favorite. We visited it three times on this 7 day trip to the area. I love the ceviche and sea bass. A great view with great service.

Great view, especially around sunset. The food is very good too. Fresh fish and genuine costa rica meal. Reasonable prices. The service was good, very attentive, although we were there on a slow night. Loved the shrimp special - we had it as an appetizer.

Pelicano does an especially good job for lunch, with a soup and salad bar if you order of the lunch menu. Most affordable place in the area (especially compared to Los Suenos), and I particularly really like their shrimp tacos! Beautiful views, kind service.

We went here for dinner on way to Los Sueños. The menu is perfect for a beach restaurant. The prices are reasonable. Food was great. Order the shrimp and rice! But service was slooooow.
