Great spot to grab lunch or dinner after spending a day at the beach! Food was delicious and staff was wonderful. It did take awhile for our meals however I understand things move a little slower in CR and with Covid restrictions/staffing I get it....When you have little, hungry kids it definitely is hard waiting. Lots of grassy areas for kids to play too which was nice and it’s literally on the beach. Beautiful spot Try the Shrimp dish . I believe it’s the first choice. YummmmmyMore

We were staying on a resort nearby and were looking for a local joint on the beach to have lunch. We came accross Roberto's while researching and we were very happy with our decision! The staff was super friendly and the food and drinks were...amazing! My husband ordered the red snapper and I ordered the mahi mahi. To die for! We are from Illinois where the price for EVERYTHING is inflated so we saw no issue with the cost of our amazing meal! Our service was "Blue" and he was great!More

The rice with shrimp was very good, as well as the fish sticks. The fish ceviche was not prepared correctly and one family member got sick the next day, we had an early lunch so I imagine it was not ready when they served it...and should have told us. The rest of the food and drinks was good.More

The servers were very kind and attentive. We ate the peppered steak and the barbecued ribs. The meet was very tender. The sauces were delicious. The flan was incredible. This restaurant is right on the beach and has beautiful views. You can sit indoor or...outdoor and there are ceiling fans inside.More

We read great things about their burritos. Saw the menu earlier in the day and planned for dinner. Unfortunately, the dinner menu did not include burritos, however we were not disappointed. I had the octopus and loved it. Highly recommend. We are already planning to...go back for lunch...and burritos.More

Had a hard time deciding on appetizers ... so we skipped appts and went for an entree my friend had to return his and my tuna was a true disappointment! Great location on the beach, again for a sunset & drinks .... the menu needs...a makeover and the staff needs to stop pushing all the high priced items.More

We enjoyed seafood for lunch and pina coladas, sitting at a table by the beach. Nice setting and great service! Relaxing!

Location on Playa Hermosa is great with outdoor seating scattered amongst the palm trees. Food and drinks were good resulting in a very Pura Vida experience.

We went for lunch and a little later than typical lunch hour. It was not super busy and our Service great. I think just calling when you arrive in CR will work. A day or two notice for the day you an to eat at establishment.
