Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Kitchen and bar staff where great. Room was beautiful. Jessica in the front office was very nice and professional. Brought in fish and were done to perfection. Fished with Beto who is very patient, professional and allows mistakes without being mad. Works extremely hard and stays booked. It's easy to see why. Loves his profession, his... More

Food was good,I had pasta. View was beautiful, right on the marina. It was a warm night but not too bad on the deck. Service was good.

We came here twice in our short stay in Golfito. Let's start with setting the expectations for Golfito, it is still a bit of port town with the main Duty free shopping for Tico's. So not our favourite place in Costa Rica. That said if you are int he area this is the place to eat. The staff where friendly... More

This restaurant is very clean, open air, waiters and bartenders are very attentive. The food anything you order is great, If you have a fishing trip linesd up early in the morning, they will rush up a good breakfast for you. Good place to just sit and relax, have a few drinks , order dinner and hit the sack!!

It is nice sitting out on the water watching the sun go down. I had a fish fingers which were very good but a little pricey considering the fishing boats bringing in fresh fish everyday. Happy hour is from 5-7pm.

Great spot on the water with nice boats to look at while enjoying some of the best food in Golfito. Great atmosphere with a nice size menu. I go there every time I'm in town. Burgers, club sandwich , nachos are fantastic.

A clean, open-air setting with great views and lively Happy Hour, and probably the best burger in Golfito. The staff is efficient and professional. Bathrooms are spotless. The place just oozes quality as soon as you set foot onto its property and does not disappoint. Some very high quality sashimi, sushi, and rolls, although not on menu, can be offered... More

Great little restaurant on the water with a relaxing view. Food was ok, service a bit slow but a great place to enjoy the marina and harbor. Clean bathrooms and the employee in the office where we bought our t shirts was outstanding.
