Two friends and I went to Costa Rica and only had reservation for the first night at La Costa de Papito . After driving for about 6 hours we arrived at night tired and very hungry. We had the most amazing dinner there. Whole fried Red Snapper. Home baked roll, the freshest salad with a delicious pesto dressing. Simply amazing!

Fabulous restaurant with imaginative decor and furnishings. Service is of the highest of standards, like something you would expect in a 5* New York restaurant. Menu is fabulous, and vastly diverse. The food is exquisite, and is served with flair and attention to detail. Prices are fair, representing good value for money - but think twice if you are on... More

Good food and great service. Seafood bisque was awesome. Highly recommend the coconut flan. Very clean establishment. We stayed next door but seems like a quaint resort as well. Cheers!

Was so happy that the resort I was staying in had a restaurant at it that was THIS AMAZING! A lot of times you stay at a hotel or such and the restaurant is only ok. Before we arrived I was thinking that we wouldn't eat there much, but we were wrong. We ended up eating there almost every night.... More

We had a very inattentive server, I think this is important to note, since all the other reviews rave about great service. There were only 5 tables and still we barely saw our waiter, in fact we almost left before order because it had taken so long. I ordered the special, seabass in shrimp sauce, I would recommend that. It... More

So we got here at about 9pm, asked for appetizers until we could figure out on the following dish. The waiter tell us that the kitchen will close at 10... Then he comes back and says that the kitchen is already close and it's still 9.45... I can't say that the entrées were great. The ceviche was definitely not Peruvian... More

This is the nicest facility and cleanest restaurant we went to while in Puerto Viejo. We had a very friendly service staff in Frederico, who was very attentive to our needs. I just wish the food was as good as the rest of the experience. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. A lot of the Sodas (little hole-in-the-wall... More

The place is lovely, good ambiance, surroundings. The staff are helpful and nice. You get a free starter if you get a main meal, so that was a welcome bonus!
