The drinks are good but don't go here for dinner! I think they are called Lazy Mon for a reason... It took forever for us to get menus, then forever for us to place our orders, and when our food finally did come it was cold and the burger buns were stale. Also my husband had a pack of cigarettes... More

Indoor and outdoor dining...you can bring a family here after a day at the beach. A group of us went for dinner; music entertainment; food was good and flavorful. Local style food at a reasonable price

Low quality bar, low quality foods (taco, onion ring, wings), hippie place. You can feel that you are in Woodstock in 1969, and Jimmy Hendrix will play soon while Janis Joplin sings: "Oh Lord..."

The Lazy Mon was a great place to grab a drink and just hang out. They have both a pool and ping pong table and a couple large TVs. It's a nice open space with a relaxing vibe.

We stopped in Lazy Mon for a drink and ended up staying a lot longer then we expected. There was an amazing band and we danced and hung out with some locals. All good and it has swings down by the water which are also cool. Definitely stop in for drinks and more....

This is the place to go in Puerto Viejo, BUT the service sucks. The people at the mini-bars have no clue what good service means, can hardly speak Spanish, which is mind-blowing. Overall, great place to dance, awful place to buy a beer.

We joined the party here after midnight and enjoyed both live bands and also the DJ (once he got his kit working). Lively crowd of tourists and locals. We were the only old folk in there...which got us some looks but we still party hard so get that. In part beach party, in part Spring break, but a great spot.... More

I went for dinner one night while staying in Puerto Viejo for a couple of days. I got a chicken Quesadilla and a rum and coke, so delicious! Great vibes and great food!
