This place came recommended by locals. We had the red snapper (fisherman brought it in as we sat down!), ceviche, chips/salsa/guac/beans platter, and chicken fajitas. Food was fresh, tasty and a great deal! $23 ea for the 5 of us (includes 2 drinks ea). Owned by a local named Nora. Her family used to own a big chunk of the... More

Herradura is a delight. It's full of hustle and bustle with local people. This is a great authentic local restaurant for taking in the scenery and watching the activity. You will be sitting just across a small thoroughfare from the beach. We hear the place is owned by descendants of one of the local original families in the area. The... More

Our second visit to this restaurant / bar was even better the the first. With the marange music blaring and couples dancing in the mid afternoon, you just had to feel that you have found the real Costa Rica. Very close to the Los Suenos compound you would never know it. Locals enjoying themselves with a mix of gringos with... More

We ate here twice on our recent trip to Costa Rica. We stayed at Los Suenos and this restaurant was a quick drive around the corner from the resort or a short walk along the beach. The food was simply amazing. We wanted an authentic local experience and got it. The food was an incredible value and was absolutely delicious.... More

We love La Puesta Del Sol!! We go back for more every year and you can't beat the vibe, the folks, the food and the beautiful views. It's a family run corner bar and restaurant and has friendly people, locals that work at Los Suenos to local fisherman that take out charters to peeps like us; folks that want the... More

We may have saved the best for last. We saw this restaurant recommended on Trip Advisor. I had actually had a drink here one night, not realizing it was also a great restaurant. Even then the service was great, the bartender (Dennis, the owner) was gracious and helpful. Introduced me to a Nicaraguan Rum I'd never had... Flora de Cana... More

We wanted a local, low key vibe and happened upon La Puesta del sol as we drove down the beach. It is open air facing the beach with simple fresh food, good beers and a good jukebox. This is not the place for fancy cocktails. The crowd was mostly local the night we were there and very friendly.

Loved the Marriott but wanted a little change so took a walk to La Puesta Del Sol and found this awesome spot. Dennis the owner is great. He is from the states and was more than helpful. Wish we would have walked over from day one and not the last day of our trip. Food was great and he will... More
