Bar and restaurant on a busy street full of sports bars. The food is not flashy but it is well cooked and satisfies most hungers. Beers and cocktails are fairly priced. Friendly staff.

Quick, easy, relaxing and delicious! We frequented this nook of restaurants frequently as it is neck to a tourism guide office. The food was delicious and priced well for any budget! You don't have to eat at the beach restaurants to get amazing food!

We love the drinks here! We often order the food too and we like it very much. I always order the steak, with mash potatoes, and veggies. Always taste good even though its not the healthiest options. Drinks are always great and reasonably priced.

Great bang for the buck! Get the Traditional Costa Rican Lunch with fish (garlic sauce- grilled). You won't be sorry. Plus, for all you lushes out there...they have a 2 for 1 all day happy hour on select coconutty drinky drinks.
