So we went here and it was possibly the highlight of our honeymoon. Everything was just your normal dinner until people cruised in with a bucket of fish and just handed it to the chef who was more than happy to cook it for them. You kidding?! How cool is that?? Also. Another guy just cruised in and made his... More

We were swimming in Herradura Bay. first day we ate at the Marina. Second day, we had a a bear and stayed for lunch at La Puesta de Sol. Best grilled fish we've had in years!! And most economical option over the full 10 day trip whilst the quality of the food was amongst the best. If you stop by,... More

One of their bartenders name is Eddie. He remembered us when we were there in March. He was such a great bartender!! Their food is amazing and the beer is ALWAYS cold!! The bar sits right across from the beach what a beautiful view!!

Juke box full of hard rock and metal was a nice start to lunch on a rainy day. I had the whole fried snapper which was the best one I had all week. Very reasonable prices. We watched all the local farmers and fisherman bring in their daily deliveries. Pretty cool.

We walked over from Los Suenos. It was a nice change of scenery, much more local. We got there just as they were opening up for lunch. The Bloody Mary was among the worst I have had. We ordered ceviche and avocado, black bean soup, and a burger for my son. The food was very good. My son and wife... More

For the most part our reviews are good, however, we do apologize for your experience at our establishment. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Costa... More

Located right across from the beach about 5 steps till you are in the water or close. Lunch served daily at 11:30am. I showed up my first time ever and they weren't serving food yet but they did allow me to order a nice glass of fresh Guayanaba Juice. That allowed me to kill some time until lunch while using...

We've been coming to this great local spot since our first visit to Costa Rica and each trip brings us back at least 2 to 3 times. It's a spot where the locals go, the tourists meander here from Los Suenos property and the staff seems to remember everyone!! We love it here. To us, this is "our spot" and... More

I walked to this restaurant with my family from Los Suenos. The walk took about 5 minutes, but we had to be careful of the tide coming in, as there are times when it would be difficult to cross. The staff was very friendly, and the food was good! The atmosphere was different from many of the restaurants around the... More
