about 1 km outside of Cahuita, in the centre of many of the small boutique hotels. Good place for a brew or meal. Basic costa rican food that is tastier than most. Right across the street from the ocean so you can sit at the rail and watch the world go by.

I've discovered a new vice in Chao's Sopa de Mariscos. Plentiful local shell fish swim agsist a coconut broth and rising tide of octopus, crab, langosta, y camarones. Succulent and not rubbery or overcooked. Perfectly spiced and fragrant, filled with fresh veggies too. Service is more laid back, carribean style so all the more languid lushness of looking out to sea and taking your time to enjoy the carribean flavors.

I ate here with a group of 12 people and the food was delicious. I got a perfectly prepared red snapper and the salad with shrimps and avocado was also more than delicious. The owner is a very hospitable caribean man who makes you feel very welcome. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very relaxd and we got served very quick although we came with a group and didnot make a reservation. Try this one and you will come back!

This restaurant was our local. A 2 minute walk from the hotel, and run by pleasant and charming Norman, the food was pretty much Italian but with a twist of Caribbean and or local.
Had 2 very good meals. Spaghetti with shrimp was delicious.
Meat too was good.

This spot was very close to where we were staying. We had a bit of misadventure between the airport and Cahuita, and when we arrived at the restaurant, we were a bit scattered. The menu is expensive, the food was poor. And I'm not sure if it was an accident or intentionally taking advantage for frazzled tourists, but we were significantly overcharged on our bill, When I pulled out my phone to check the math, the owner came back and spontaneously volunteered to recalculate my bill.
