Think the ownership changed since our last visit, food is good---scene is fun and lively. Was pumped to be able to watch the Super Bowl there too. We met some locals and found out some great shortcuts for getting around Negra and Tamarindo. Calzones were good and the beer was even better!

Great social area of town, happening little bar with music occassionally and good food all the time. Try the Calzones or the Specials are always fresh caught and yummy!

So a new owner, but the food is superb with particularly excellent mixed ceviche, all for cheap. This wonderful place is well worthwhile. Plan to take the owner's advice about the special for the evening. she will not steer you wrong and it will be ridiculously cheap.

A group of us were looking for a place to watch the Super Bowl. We did not have to travel far to find Mary's sports bar. This was a very cool bar with no walls. It was all open. The food was very good as well we had the breaded calamari and marlin ceviche. Both were above our expectations.

We happened on Mary's Place by accident; so glad we did! Our last night in Playa Negra, we didn't want to cook again, so out we went. Mary's Place is set back from the road but is beautifully lit with many lights on the trees leading up to the restaurant. We were welcomed by Mary...LOVELY, with a beautiful French accent!... More

The atmosphere is warm and welcoming surrounded by palms...all open air. Tables are well spaced and the service is good. It's the desserts the French owners make that make you want to revisit Mary's. Chocolate Eclairs,, chocolate tarts, profiteroles with house made chocolate sauce are all delicious. A real star in lovely Playa Negra. It also doubles in the daytime... More
