I stayed in Playa Hermosa for 8 weeks and tried every restaurant on the beach. By far, Roberto's was the best! I had multiple visitors who all said the same thing and always wanted their last meal to be at Roberto's. Best chifrijo in the...More

Amazing ceviche and best tuna steak I have had in a long time. Beachside atmosphere and cool breeze next to ocean makes this restaurant a perfect experience.

We enjoyed both lunch and dinner here. Nicest setting at Playa Hermosa. Food was delicious. Try the Chifrijos at lunch. Tuna for dinner was excellent too. Nice selection of food that mixes both local and international foods.

wonderful, fresh food right on the beach. it's casual but nice. the other places on the beach are more like bars with food. even if you are not staying at the hotel, i highly recommend that you stop by for a meal here.

Thank you for making us aware of this situation. You are correct that there is a 10% service charge and a 15% vat tax by law on each bill in Costa Rica.

We only ate here once, but the service and food were very good, and you couldn't beat the ocean view. I had a tuna salad that was fresh seared yellowfin tuna steak on top of mixed greens, and it was out of this world.

Along the beach of Playa Hermosa, there are some cozy, beach-side restaurants to choose from. I tried several and enjoyed them all, some more than others. "Pescado Loco", which is just inland from the beach was a lucky find for me. Fresh "catch of the...More

Hi folks. My family had dinner a month or so ago and really enjoyed the experience. Our server mentioned the hotel rooms that are also there but I can't find any information on the rooms. Can you provide a link or website so I can advise a friend who is going to Hermosa beach.

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.
