We visited after surfing a couple of times to grab some breakfast. We all enjoyed the atmosphere and had great meals. We will visit again next time in Playa Grande.

The food was average... nothing I would say I LOVED but given that most places were closed after a certain time (6pm- June, rainy season), this option is okay. Their fruit shakes were very good and their mixed alcoholic drinks were good too. My only complaint was the service time. It could be because Costa Rica has a very "relaxed"... More

Delicious and reasonably priced! The menu in English and Spanish made it fun to brush up on our Spanish while we waited.

With somewhat limited options in Playa Grande, this place was perfectly fine. It's a local place and open more hours than some other places. The mango smoothies were good, as was the service. The menu is pretty extensive. We ate there twice. Once we got rice dishes, which I found a little on the greasy side. The next time my... More

I liked that this restaurant was a local hangout. It was good to get a feel for the local culture and food. That said, the local food is not as good compared to the many other excellent choices in Playa Grande. I'm glad we went for the experience and the service was great and friendly. I'd go back.

When in need if staying near the Rip Jack there is This little spot. Basically a convenience store that has bread, water, pop, beer and wine. Prices for wine were about 4500 colones so similar to the grocery store. Also you can get jam etc but the closest grocery store is in the other part of Playa Grande.

We ate here twice during our 4-day stay in Playa Grande - both times for dinner! It was very good and the service was excellent (even when they were very busy they were attentive and friendly). The casados and Arroz con camarones were very good! Our boys also really enjoyed the spaghetti bolognese. I recommend this place for authentic Tico... More

The food here was the most reasonably priced in Playa Grande, and was really quite good. Typical local food (rice dishes etc) and really tasty. Their french fries were a little soggy, but other than that, good stuff!

I really loved the Casado Typica I had here with fish. My wife had the fajitas, and was surprised they did not come with fajitas. She was not crazy about the beef, thinking it was a little tough. I'd go back and give it another shot though.

Used to be a beach town hangout for locals, but it's gotten a bit touristy. Food is good, but not outstanding. Worth dropping in if you're in the neighborhood. Casados were a decent value.
