This place was so good we came here twice. It certainly isn't a cheap place which you might expect when you arrive but the seafood is so fresh and good. The mariscada was out of the world and the staff are very friendly

We had a great seafood lunch at this local and authentic seafood restaurant, the seafood was fresh and tasty, the portions were generous, we highly recommend this local restaurant if you are looking for a off the beaten path experience, away from resort dining and touristy restaurants near Manuel Antonio

We decided to try something more authentic than the over-priced restaurants in the Marina area...the place is up a hill...and looks like some old shack that a family is living in...but once you get over the ambience...or lack of it...the food is extremely good...seafood is fresh...probably caught that same day... Lobster tails - 8/10 Jumbo shrimp - 8/10 (nicely seasoned)... More

If you're looking for a slice of Costa Rican life, away from the (overrated and overpriced) tourist joints in Manuel Antonio, then you must come here. The seafood is fresh, tasty, made to order. The restaurant restaurant is quaint, Just out of town (the taxi driver will know how to get there) but once you arrive, it's like you've been... More

WORST night I've experienced during our stay in Costa Rica. When we got there, we were appalled at how rundown this place was. The location is off of the main roads and the outside looked like a shack with dogs whimpering and barking outside. Don't even get me started on the inside.. There were no people inside even when it... More

As many of you, we were looking for a nice place to eat fresh seafood near Manuel Antonio and Quepos. We omitted the more popular recommendations and went to Jiuberths. The place is up in a hill and it's runned by a very couple. I had a mixed ceviche (fish, octopus, shrimp) which was superbly fresh. My partner had a... More

the restaurant is run by a fisherman and his wife, and the seafood they serve is excellent. the setting is very authentic and cozy, and the lady very nice with guests. they show you their kitchen with the catch of the day when you enter the place! we went there twice already...

Me and my wife took a fish (Pargo), i had the whole thing fried and it was great but a bit oily and she took a fillet with cream sauce and was very satisfied.

One of the hotel employees at the Issimo Suites, where we were staying recommended Jiuberths as a place to get an authentic Costa Rican experience. To be clear, this place is far from fancy, but it's a very unique experience and the freshest seafood we had in Costa Rica! It's run by a Costa Rican couple (I'm assuming they are... More

We ve been to other local seafood restaurants in town and ingredients are definitely very fresh here ! Prices went up at least 30 to 40% from the menu you can see from a previous visiter though ! The waitress (seemed like the owner) did not appreciate we ordered just a ceviche and a seafood Rice !. When she found... More

Fisherman and family catch and cook fresh seafood daily. Very inexpensive yet clean, well portioned food with extra attention from owners. What you see on the platter is what is available today.
