Overlooking the Plaza Bolivar this restaurant is used by tour companies and for good reason the cooking is exceptional if you stick to local cuisine. A fine selection of fresh fish to satisfy any seafood lovers appetite, locals would normally accompany their choice of fish with coconut rice and vegetables as we did but we were also offered potatoes. Service... More

Not a very good experience. We ordered pasta and was not good. Chicken was extra dry and nothing out of the ordinary. Ceviche Tamarindo with shrimp was not something we would recommend it was not my favorite ceviche in town ( and we have tried a lot.... lol) Service was below average, first refusing to give us the WiFi password....

This restaurant overlooks the Plaza Bolivar and from our first floor balcony table we could enjoy the atmospheric drumming and dancing in the square whilst we dined. The calamari and ceviche starters we had were both exemplary as were the fish with spinach mash and squid ink risotto mains. The maitre d' and his staff were all charming and efficient.... More

Just had the plantains basket as entree and encrusted steak for mains and I go home very happy. The plantains are cooked to perfection with a very good amount of "hogao" filling, while the steak is cooked medium and the crust add a nice and strong contrast to the beef. I highly recommend you sit in the balcony and enjoy... More

Lovely view and location, nice atmosphere and menu. Service was ok, and food above par. It was a lovely night and peaceful, I don't believe I'd like to dine indoors. I enjoyed the coffee flavored steak. I'd say give it a try ! I'd return on my next visit if I could!

This restaurant is all about the risottos (super rico), wine, and live music. Servers are great when you're the first table in, but kind of taper off and get forgetful as the night wears on. We had to ask for a bottle of water I think three times before it arrived. But, for a nice meal out with wine to... More

We had a few drinks there today. A couple of us had the gin-tonic cocktail from the drinks menu which was priced at 15.000 pesos, including Gin, lemon juice and tonic water. The waiter asked us what gin and tonic water did we like for our drink. He mentioned Gordon's and Bombay, and there was fever tree tonic available. Obviously... More

Had a nice meal on the lovely balcony which is great for people watching. We made it for happy hour and they had 2 for 1 drinks. Chose the rum punch which was nice. My husband had the tropical fish filet and I had the shrimp in garlic sauce. Both were nicely done. The service is very slow so come... More
