We spent two hours at a shady table after the beach got too hot. Wifi worked great. The muscles were awesome. Larger and meatier then what we usually see. There were only six served on the half shell in a lime-onion salsa. Very tasty. The grilled calamari was excellent as well.

Far from one of the best places for food in Playa Hermosa but a great atmosphere to eat OK food overlooking the beach. The service was average and the food was too.

We found this place looking for somewhere to watch the world cup on the beach - and were amazed by the food quality - ceviche, whole fish, Peruvian potatoes. All that and everything we were looking for - great quality tv tied to a tree and passionate fans decorated in Tico colors. All that was missing was for the Ticos... More

This is a great spot to sit and watch the ocean. Sunsets are spectacular from this vantage point. I wish I could say the same for the food and service. I tried two different ceviches on different nights and neither approached even average. They were lacking in flavor, no lime, onion, cilantro - nothing. It was just raw fish served... More

Went on a catamaran, snorkeling fun in the sun. Met lots of people from other countries and that stayed at other hotels, they were not stuck up and also enjoyed meeting us. Lots to talk about and trips to compare. Boat took us out to monkey head island which was a sight to see clear waters and sunshine. A fun... More

Everybody loves a beachfront restaurant/bar, but it's so much better if the food and service match the exceptional view. I read most of the reviews on this site but I am here to tell you, the food was really outstanding and so was the service (Octopus salad - beautifully prepared and presented, fish tacos - excellent salsa & sauce and...

Great location right on the beach and excellent entertainment the night we were there. But....... the service and food were sorely lacking. Cold, raw grilled calamari sent back twice. Finally opted for breaded and deep fried. My fish fingers arrived after everyone else was finished and the entertainment was over. Took it home for a flavorless lunch the next day.... More

This place had been recommended, so we took a chance. We were at Playa Hermosa for the day and they have a great setting on the beach. In all fairness, though, it was the off season and it was as if they were surprised to have customers. It took a long time for the server to get things sorted out,... More

Everything we ordered was good, but the service was not good at all. after a while our server just disappeared and we ended up with a completely different one. I'm not too sure how exactly this happened since there weren't that many people there and when we were leaving I saw our waitor again, behind the bar. I had the... More

The swings were a lot of fun Great fish tacos and right on the beach. Great drinks, too. They made my husband pasta even though it wasn't on the menu. Very nice atmosphere and food.
