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.

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

This is a large restaurant which caters mainly for the in house resort guests. The stuff is very nice and caring and the restaurant is very clean and tidy. We ordered a filet of marlin and one of swordfish and were quite disappointed with the taste.The fish tasted quite "fishy" which usually reflects a low quality or low freshness and... More

We ate here a few times and the food was great every time. They have a good selection of seafood and sauces to go with them. The staff there is fantastic, always with a smile.

We came 2 days ago and enjoyed a delicious ceviche of sea bass followed by a generous version of a seafood plate for 2 people containing a red snapper, calamari, shrimps, clams, mussels and a tuna steak for very reasonable 30 USD. The chef surprised us with a delicious Carribean cake with chocolate ice cream afterwards. We were so happy... More

Alex is a very inventive and experienced Chef. Great fresh food every night. Accommodating in every way. Did I mention he loves to bake!!!! The pastry smells wafting from the kitchen in the afternoon are intoxicating. I hope he gets to read this. If there is no soup on the menu and you are in the mood just ask around... More

I really enjoy lunch in this place, not was a problem that I came at 3 pm the service of Minerva was exceptional and the food very fresh, if you go try the Caribbean sauce on fish is excellent some days they have live music and the place is relaxed.
