When I travelled through Costa Rica I fortunately chose to pass by Cahuita as well... In the few days I was here I visited Cha Cha Cha a few times. I loved the food!!! Not a lot of table so you feel special having one that evening. One of the best dinners I had during my holiday in Costa Rica!

When you go to little towns like Cahuita, you might find some questionable eateries. Cha Cha Cha uses fresh, quality ingredients. The food is delicious. The quaint atmosphere is wonderfully romantic.

The food was very good but they had a limited menu and the service was rather bad. A bit expansive too.

Tatiana, the new owner of this little gem in Cahuita, is truly a world class chef. We ordered shrimp in a Caribbean sauce ---some kind of magical, secret ingredient is clearly involved--- and we savored every bite. The experience was authentic and perfect. In fact, we were so pleased, we returned the next night and ordered Tuna in a Thai... More

The food was great. We really liked this restaurant! They have a few tables, so walk by the restaurant earlier and ask them to reserve a table for you. Otherwise you have got the chance that they are full. The shrimps are reccomandable!

I had shrimp with the owner's secret sauce, and it was delicious. Beautiful lighting, nice people and excellent food.

This place, in our experience, seems to vary from week to week. Sometimes the food is great, other times, not so much. It's had to come up with an adequate recommendation, but we've had good experiences and bad.

Some of the best food we had in Cahuita. We had several dinners here & enjoyed a suprisingly wonderful pasta primavera, shrimp Cha-Cha-Cha and filet. Pasta primavera was just okay on our 3rd trip, but still a nice atmosphere with a wonderful waiter (Hola Francisco!).
