Far better than expected, this re ssd's restaurant is staffed by friendly and efficient waiters. And the food is outstanding, starting with complimentary plantain chips. My shrimp ceviche was outstanding....on a par we with the best I've had in Peru. I wish they offered local...cuisine, but the cater to an international clientele.More

Perfect breezy restaurant on the ocean beach in San Juan Del Sur. Amazing staff and cold beers. The menu has lots to offer and the food is superb.

We had wonderful lunch and loved the location as it's right on the beach. Our service was good and the beers were really cold! The menu offered a nice variety of seafood; we really enjoyed the mussels.

The service and food there was great. My wife had the fish and enjoyed it very much. They had a nice food selection and prices were good but a bit higher then the other places.

Very nice restaurant with different varieties from the sea, especially "sopa se mariscos" is amazing. When fishing the restaurant prepared a lunch from Roosterfish and Dorado. What a nice taste.

Fish dishes are excellent, especially sopa de mariscos which contains all possible delicious species from the sea. I tried it twice. The prices are a little bit high but it is worth of trying. Service is fast and attentive.

I love El Timon. The larger than life hammock, the very kind waitstaff in their very cute sailor uniforms and one of my favorite happy hour menus! All of the food here is really yummy. Don't come starving the kitchen is very slow but i'm...always happy with my meal.More

Excellent restaurant. Excellent service. Excellent food. Comes across as an above average restaurant, from the uniformed waiters to the presentation of the meals. A little higher priced than I usually like but well worth it.
