We had a very good meal here on 'Horseshoe Bay' with an ocean view and a wonderful atmosphere. The staff and the local folks are friendly and helpful.

Excellent service, food was average, but i imagine very good by Costa Rica standards. We tried a variety...steaks, Red Snapper...was a bit dry...salads were good. You can eat outside or inside....take some bug spray if you are eating outside.

We had the specialty seafood dish that was full of different varieties of seafood, lobster, shrimp, calamari etc in a nice sauce. There were four of us and we shared the platter for 2. It was plenty with a salad and some fried calamari to start. The location is great, right on the water with all of the local fishing... More
