Like everyone says, the service here is fantastic, but our meals were bland and boring. We've been eating Tico food exclusively for a week now, and this was the weakest effort by far. I had the fish casado and it was nearly flavorless, and it wasn't really overcooked by much. My daughter's fajita was so so and my wife's beef... More

The service was good and the food was excellent. It was a little difficult to find so don't give up searching as it is well worth the effort. It

We had breakfast here twice while in Cahuita. The food was great and the plate so beautifully made when it was served. We loved it.

I did my research on the internet of Cahuita's restaurants. This place got really good reviews. The reviews were accurate and we were not disappointed. This is the case of not judging a book by it's cover. The outside of the building is nothing to look at, but the food is awesome. My husband had a spaghetti dish and said... More

I liked the fish casado and my husband liked the red snapper. The service was pretty slow but I've read this is normal for the restaurants in the area. It was difficult to get the staff attention to ask for the bill.

My wife and I returned here a few times during our short stay in Cahuita. The food was consistently good for the price, we had the nachos, ceviche, shrimp with Caribbean sauce and a hamburger. The beer and wine was cheap as well. The staff was friendly and did well to explain what some of the items were on the... More
