Excellent place. I sat and watched sunset drinking the most delicious piña colada I've ever had. Followed by a fish dinner that was incredible. The flavors were perfect. Even as it got dark it was nice to sit by the water and listen to the waves. The night was topped off by one of the waiters pointing out a sloth... More

The fine Italian fisherman sets the mark high every time. This was my 3rd visit in 5 years, and Marco's talents will always be on our itinerary when in CR. This visit saw our night begin with the can't be missed under any circumstances spicy mussels and an ice cold Imperial. Onward with my wife raving about her shrimp dinner,... More

We ate there 2 out of 3 nights in Cahuita because the setting was so spectacular and the food was excellent. Service not particularly friendly, but certainly prompt and professional. Highly recommend.

We ate almost all our dinners here and were never disappointed. We were even visited by a sloth one evening! Try the ceviche, lobster with fries, and fish and chips! All were amazing

The food here was good, but just average good, nothing spectacular. The prices are a bit on the higher end to CR, so you would have assumed that the food would be a bit better, too. But that wasn't the case. The restaurant is located right at the beach front, so that's really nice.

We went here for dinner on my husband's birthday and he thoroughly enjoyed it. The view of the waves is really great, the owner was friendly and accomodating, and the food was delicious. Can't complain!

I only had a couple of beers here, no food, but I was really glad that I stopped in. The service was great and the view was gorgeous. I sat outside and watched the sunset throughout the palm trees. Can't really get any better than that.

We had a very nice dinner, the food was very good and the service excellent ( bananas were driven by motorbike especially for our desserts by the boss). The shrimp pasta were a big success. Pura vida !
