One of the best meals we had in Costa Rica. A little more expensive than elsewhere but worth it.
Mussels appetiser were the highlight for me, cooked in a lovely garlicky sauce. My wife’s langoustines were cooked well and very succulent.
Location was great, sitting outside overlooking the sea. Even in the dark the edge of the sea is lit by the restaurant and the sound of the waves adds to the meal.

Place was nice and the food was reasonable (although some of the side dishes were not cooked properly) and with friendly waiters. Upon payment there was a 12% surcharge for using a credit card which is normal but was also asked to pay 10% service charge, in other restaurants in the same area this was not added and thus we considered it non-mandatory. While paying we mentioned that we'd like to give compensation for our service in cash. The owner/manager promptly started being rude and aggressive and went on the back to get a large stick and started harassing and insulting us even after we had paid for the full thing on credit card. All the waiters and cook came to excuse for their boss behavior. We decided not to act back on aggression nor call the police and tried to abstain from that shameful behavior. Will definitely not be coming back to this place.

They have some tables inside that are nothing special but then they have some lovely tables in a row outside which face the ocean and so have the most beautiful view. Grab one of those and enjoy a romantic night! The food is exceptional, some of the best we had in Costa Rica, delicious fresh fish - and the mussels to start were incredible! The waiters are lovely and have impeccable English.
