My daughter and I ate here on a fluke as we walked around Cahuita looking for a place to have dinner. We sat outside and enjoyed a lovely meal, great service, good value, nice reggae music in the background and when we were don't our waiter called a taxi for us to take us back to our hotel.

I do not know why other TA members thought this was so great. It sits on the noisiest corner in Cahuita. Sorry but service was extremely slow, I only went because of the happy hour.

The service and food is really good here.The atmosphere is nice and warm inviting for a cozy dinner. Definitely worth a visit!! At the weekend evenings they play music very loudly so if you want to have a conversation with your dinner company, it might be a good idea to go somewere else.

We went twice to Ricky's and much enjoyed his chat and the strng Carribean beat. The casado was very good - we tried chicken and beefsteak, with extra chilero! We also enjoyed the happybhor cocktails - a fine maragarita, we had to have 2! Only downside was the poor nachos the first time.
