Gorgeous setting and views, right on the bay of SJDS, like most restaurants here the food is barely average. Due to the setting I'm sure the food costs much more than off beach locations.

Our port lecturer aboard the cruise ship recommended a few places to try in San Juan de Sur. Josseline's was our choice. For $36 US, we had two margaritas, fried shrimp, fish tacos, pico de gallo, pinto beans and rice. The restaurant has two levels...and a little child's playground. Enjoyable lunchMore

Great spot for happy hour drinks at sunset.Beers or Rum and Coke for $1 each happy hour.Nice friendly service. The $2 snacks we tried were not worth the price, so we ate elsewhere.

Right on the beach, Excellent seafood and meats. Service good. Early in the morning excellent cappucchino and other coffees. Highly recommend it. Prices tend to be high but worth it.

No better combo than a dining with a beachfront view and delicious seafood plate. We enjoyed their lobster plate that was perfectly cooked. We also had their fish ceviche that was well prepared; however, I hoped that their ceviche could have at least come with...tortillas, fried yucca or plantains, or tostones, instead of packaged soda crackers. Overall, beautiful location, great food, fair price (for tourists) and attentive and friendly staff.More

Very poor cocktails - my mojito looked like pond water. You couldn't take a sip without getting a mouthful of rotten mint leaf. When we politely tried to explain to the staff their rude response was "well that's how we make mojitos." They took the...mojitos away and still charged us for them?! Don't waste your money here - head to any of the other (better) bars on the beach.More

My favorite place for lobster had to come back twice for lobster as it had a fantastic taste and the shrimp cervice was very well prepared. Not as expensive as El Timon but still had the quality of service and the food was better and...cheaper.More
