Ate here twice in two days! Good prices for the beach and great food! I had grilled fish which was delicious. Happy Hour is 2 for 1 cocktails and the staff is great. Best service we had anywhere on the beach! Recommend for sure!

There are a lot of restaurants across from the public beach and this is one of the better ones. We liked the second floor with ceiling fans, overlooking the beach. The food was fine, not exceptional, but good, and large servings . The drinks and large beers on tap were good too. My tuna burger tasted fresh and not overcooked.... More

We went for happy hour and sunset. The food was tasty and plentiful. The service was good. The 2nd floor location made for a good people watching spot.

We had lunch here after a day on the beach. The fish ceviche was good but came with these strange chewy banana fritters. We were told the fish from the tuna burger was fresh, but it was very tough and overcooked. The bruscetta was okay but lacked any garlic. The view is nice though and the staff quick and friendly

Great food and drink while watching the action at the beach! What more could you ask for? The Sangrias flowed freely and the price was right!

This is the best restaurant on that strip. The staff is so nice and friendly the moment you walk in. The atmosphere is relaxed and beachy. They have so many options for food, they have traditional Costa Rican food, they have salads, pastas, fish and seafood dishes they truly have a little bit of everything here. Not to mention they...
