A family run joint right off the beach with beer so cold it makes your teeth hurt and inexpensive $1000 colones, the best attentive personable bar staff around, inexpensive way above average food and tico feel. The whole staff is speaks spanglish. Bring Nora the Owner & Matriarch some of your old books. She loves to read & quotes.

Food was good. Atmosphere is local. Food and drinks are a lot cheaper than Los Sueños. We would go there again. Service is a bit slow. You can walk here from Los Sueños, about a 10-15 mins walk.

My husband and I took a $6 (5 min) cab ride here from the Marriott Los Suenos tonight for dinner. It was the best Costa Rican food we've had all week! We both ordered the cascades, which came with rice, beans, salad, macaroni, plantains and your choice of chicken or steak, grilled with peppers and onions. Simply amazing. The place... More

We picked this restaurant based on its reviews on Trip Advisor, said #1 in Herradura. We wanted authentic Costa Rican meal, which this place should be offering from the description, unfortunately our meal didn't come close to our expectations. From what I understand Casados is supposed to be served with tortillas and plantains, this was served with some prepackaged macaroni... More

Hello, Thank you for your review. I would like to clarify a few things you mentioned. First and foremost a our macaroni salad is made fresh from scratch and we do not use bag salad! It would be quite silly as a restaurant to do so cost wise. If you have traveled to the Jaco/ Herradura area you will find... More
