Ate at Marino several times and kept going back. Their 'typical' meal is excellent and the atmosphere and service are pleasant. Not a fancy restaurant just very well done. Right on the main street across from the Outback. Open air and welcoming.

Great portions and food for our family of five. This is a nice family-run spot that is family friendly. Solid Tico cuisine. We had two dinners and a lunch here, mostly casados. Extra fun when there's a soccer game on TV.
