The restaurant is a quaint little spot with a lovely intimate atmosphere. Its situated away from the 'hub' of the town giving it a secluded feeling. Food was okay for the price. Not our type of setting..... but it was okay.

We tried this restaurant out after reading reviews and the note from the new management saying to come try them. We went on a Monday, so expected it not to be busy and it wasn't. Still, we waited forever for our food. Parking was obscure. You park near the actual kitchen door, BUT there is a walkway around to the... More

I think this restaurant is best suited for seafood. I made the mistake of ordering a pasta dish which was remarkably plain and the portions were a little small. When ordering dessert, our wait person suggested the chocolate cake with excitement. The cake tasted like a very average slice of case from an American supermarket. There are no specific complaints,... More

We are budget travelling in Costa Rica and not looking for "top end" restaurants. We were recommended to try the Relax Restaurant, just south of Cahuita. Although not the cheapest we've encountered, this restaurant is in a very attractive building, great atmosphere and decorating, very clean.....appears to be quite new but certainly well maintained, very friendly and courteous service and...

I went to relax many times and always loved it. I specially like the black pepper tenderloin. Highest compliments to Graciela, the owner for her outstanding service, her attention to details makes your meal at Relax memorable. This newer restaurant is slightly outside the center of Cahuita but it worth the 2 minute drive or paying a couple of dollars... More

Relax was our favorite restaurant even in the old location in Town in Cahuita. The new location is much more in keeping with the name, quiet and relaxing. The hosts are lovely and obviously make an effort to greet each customer personally. We stayed in Puerto Viejo this time but still made the drive to Cahuita three times for dinner.... More
