Is a very basic restaurant but well appointed, overlooking San Juanillo. Has the Costarrican feeling. Food and beverages are consistently good. Prices are reasonable. Greeting is not the best, however the servers are freindly, attentive and efficient. A must if visiting the area.

A amazing view and excellent food. You can hang out with friends in a private hut overlooking the ocean, while enjoying great music.
