Even the rain couldn't keep us away from this restaurant. The food was one of the best meals we had in Costa Rica. Service was top notch too.

We got the seafood platter and it was one of the best that we've ever had. Everything was very fresh and delicious. Loved their 2/1 happy hour drink specials. The sunset views were outstanding and the service was very good. Highly recommend.
