The food was good but the prices were the highest of the 4 restaurants we ate in the area. We tried sea food soup, fried snapper and an order of shrimp with salad. My children tried meat with mash potato and in general the food was good. They don't serve alcohol or at least it was not offered. The coffee... More

Excellent food and great sunset viewing. We have lived here three years and consider it one of the three best restaurants in the Flamingo area for fine dining.

This lovely restaurant is now closed :(. We were told the bank basically shut them down. The owners had started building condos next door and when that project failed they took the restaurant.

restaurant is forever closed . Owners had banking problems and the property has been foreclosed . Good news is the Chef ( Jean Luc ) has a cute place on the beach in Flamingo " Coco Loco" . He also has a great place in Tamarindo , 20 min away , named PANGA

Mar y Sol was one of my favorites, but sadly it is no longer in operation, so don't try to go there. When it was open I would have given it 5 stars. But now it is closed, so 1 star.

Sad, one of the best is gone, not to return anytime soon. Hopefully some one can take over in the future.

Mr y Sol is a wonderful restaurant with great food and service, with a fabulous second floor bar with a view of Flamingo Bay. It always closes in the CR winter (North American summer) which is the low season. It will reopen in October or so.

I walked every morning to find better and better views. One morning I stumbled upon this place and was sad to see it was closed (cerrado). Not sure if that is only during this season or for good. We had heard good things. I had to rate it to write this review but we did not get to try it.
