Starting Mondays they will have live music. Love the Sangria and almost any dish which they owner will prepare for you right on your table. Lobster is to die for!

Loved it! Great food, great price. It was fun to try something so authentic in Costa Rica and the staff were very friendly, even though we came pretty close to closing time

What a delight. Nestled in the midst of a beautiful garden shopping area and off the beaten path of busy Coco, this restaurant is superb! No menu, just the catches Of the day. We were offered choices of several appetizers, salads, and a few entrees. Everything is fresh off the boat. You pick out your fish! We ordered 1 Red... More

This is not a fancy restaurant; don't expect the kind of service/menu/wine list that you would get in a North American or European restaurant. If that's what you want, don't even go here. The outdoor ambience is charming and pretty. The owner and his staff are friendly and want you to enjoy your time. Four of us ate there twice,... More

Food was good . Ambiance was good. Service slow. I had to ask for the check 3 times. When it finally came & I presented my credit card I was told there would be 13 percent additional charge unless I paid cash. Obvious tax fraud going on. It took another 30 minutes to finally pay my bill. The first was... More

I've been there twice. The service is great and the food is really good. It's a bit pricey, but there is nothing else like it in Playas del Coco. The only problem is the music... it's so bad... although I know they sometimes have a small band playing live, which is supposed to be good, but I've never seen it.

We had just arrived from cold northern USA, so wonderful to sit outside at this small restaurant. The staff was accommodating, and each of us enjoyed our meals....lobster, risotto, and a pasta and red snapper. WE accidentally left a shirt with our passports in the pocket (travel fatigue ?) and when we returned the next day, they had carefully locked... More

Usually our dining experience is superb to outstanding at this very charming fine dining restaurant. However, we did not keep it fresh this time. The fish of the day was the dolphin fish and we should have ordered it instead of frozen whatever. Our dining previously, lobster, red snapper, seafood pastas have been exquisite and unforgettable.
