We went fishing the next day and caught several Mahi. So we took them to Las Olas and asked if they would prepare the fish for us. They were glad to do it and that... More

Had chicken with mushroom sauce, which was only ok. Had heard it was a good place at one time, but the night we went for dinner, we were the only ones there, average service, and food that just wasn't worth it. Nice location but won't return.

Lobster kebab was delicious & not too filling. My husband had the stuffed lobster papagayo, which was an assortment of seafood in a delicious garlic sauce.

We were disappointed with the food given the positive reviews. The food was average. Wish we had selected a different restaurant given our limited time in Costa Rica.

The food here was excellent. A very good value was the shrimp pasta alfredo. The beef dishes were also very good and the meat was tender. Both the filet mignon and the beef jalepano can be recommended. Get yourself a coupon before going in a everyone in the party gets a free beer or wine which is worth 3 bucks... More

Here on the Main Street we enjoyed a great meal. My husband and I had grilled catch of the day which was sea bass. My son enjoyed fettuccine Alfredo. This was topped off with coconut flan that was heavenly! Mmmmm the food around here is the best!
