We went there to have a lunch. The location is great, but the food is just okay and overpriced. I ordered garlic shrimps and got only 6 shrimps for 11500 colones.

This is a great place for lunch if you can get a table outside. You are right over the waves and the food is great. We enjoyed our seafood and fresh vegetables and hearing the waves crash.

Excellent service, great food and an incredible view on the Caribbean, listening to the sound of las bolas. A bit off the beaten path, but worth the visit.

We enjoyed our cocktails at this place.We stopped for a views and rest under the shadows of palms. Main meals are bit above mid range and there is a lot to choose from the menu.

We had lunch here when we arrived in Cahuita. It was OK, nothing special. The view is nice and people friendly.
