We ate here on our recent visit I Cahuita because it was "the best place in town". But we felt something was of when our food arrived about 5 minutes after we ordered it. The mahi smelled like cat food, the red snapper was exceptionally chewy and the chicken was "meh" not so good. After all of this, the bill... More

I like the entree and the main course. The service was attentive and wonderful . I can recommend it. The atmosphere was really great. The fusion of the dishes astonishing. I prefer the fish going with a macademia , coconut chocolate sauce.

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.
