Roberto's has more comfortable tables and seating than most restaurants on the beach and a very relaxing atmosphere while watching the beach and sunset. We ordered the tuna special which was described in Spanish and when we asked if could be described in English, we did not hear him say the tuna steak had shrimp on it. None the less,... More

Shrimp crevice was great! Sandwiches hearty, French fries were wimpy. Prices pretty typical for resort area. Great view, steps to the sand!

As part of a group of 6, we came away with the best dinner of our stay. We stayed at a nearby all inclusive and got bored with their nightly buffet. Roberto's was recommended by one of our tour guides. Who else knows of the good places to eat than the locals! Roberto's sent a driver over to our hotel... More

The food was ok, not at the same level as a few of the other restaurants we tried on the same beach.

My wife and I had dinner here one night. We both ordered the Chef's Shrimp Dinner. It was quite good, but the price was higher than other nearby restaurants for a comparable dinner.

We have just returned from spending 9 days in Costa Rica - 5 days in Hermosa and 4 days in Flamingo. While in Hermosa we had dinner one evening at Roberto's. What a beautiful spot to both eat and watch the sunset!! Margaritas were an 11/10 and the Shrimp Cocktail was the biggest Shrimp Cocktail that we have ever been... More

I am so glad you enjoyed lunch at Roberto's. I am sorry it seemed expensive. Living in Costa Rica is not cheap as many think it will be,; especially in the beach areas. More

Stayed here for a week and had dinner here 3 times, breakfast daily and lunch/appetizers a few times more. Every meal is excellent and the staff couldn't be more accommodating! If dining in Playa Hermosa....this is the Place!

We ate here on our last night of a 4 night stay in the Playa Hermosa area. Thus far we have had average food for the most part each night (see my other reviews). We decided to try this one out for the seafood...I was a bit hesitant since it was on the beach and thus far we've found that... More
