This was a regular dining spot for us while in E.O. The food was really good and we were always so happy with the price! It's laid back and open, many of the ex-pat area residents as well as native locals done here. The owners...More

I love the burgers and when available their shrimp & rice. Beer is cold! They have been doing some remodeling inside. Biggest problem now is hours and days when you can find them open. It is worth a stop to see!

What a great place to go after a day on the beach or chasing monkeys. The beers are cold (Imperial), and the tuna was fresh. Perfect for bringing kids along. Run by some really nice expats who share their chill vibe with the laid-back clientele.

Great little dive which turns into a night-time hot spot of sorts. They primarily serve local cuisine as well as American bar food; I've had both and you cannot go wrong!

Always great food and cheap beer. A great spot for night life in Esterillos! If you're a Broncos fan, even better!

Went here for lunch based on TA reviews, no words, the food was amazing, tuna and sesame and fried shrimps dishes were the best! Price is low for the kind of dish we ordered. A must visit for lunch!

We stopped by for lunch one day and everything was great. Very laid back and relaxed atmosphere and steps away from the ocean.

Being from Colorado we had a laugh at the Broncos memorabilia on the walls when we first came in. We almost walked out because we didn't want a gringo hangout- so glad we stayed since this was the best tico Casado lunch we've had and...More
