The food was mostly ok but we had to wait a long time for the first meal to turn up and well over an hour for our last meal (counting from when the first meal came), also when the waitress was asked as to where the food was she just walked away. If a restaurant/bar cannot cater for a large... More

He made us wait to put in our order until all the side tables were moved inside at 7:45. Then the ceviche was served warm, seemed cooked and maybe canned tuna. Fresh peppers were good though. Wiped up the drink condensation on the table several times - awkward. Talked to a friend across the restaurant while I waited 5+ for... More

No doubt, this is the worst service in Cahuita and Puerto Viejo. Waited for one hour for nachos and a fish (never came), the waitress, a rude young lady, said they had a group before and that's why they were late (really that was the only response to 1hr late nachos). The restaurant had 8 people in one table and... More

Ate here twice . Once during the day and once at night. During the day we were severed by a nice girl. Good service, friendly and polite. She did forgot our starter, but that was ok. Came back a few nights later. Very different experience. Waiter with a backwards hat was rude and no customer service skills in anyway. No... More

we were only once to eat and drink in this bar.the food was average! the Casado you can get much better elsewhere. the service takes too long. In front of the bar are too much dogs. They walk around. A guest has even bitten directly into the foot in the next bar (10meters away).

We had a lot of fun the night we had dinner at Ricky's place. We sat outside at one of the tables and watched the sloths travel past, followed by a crowd of on-lookers: great entertainment!!! But just as good was our friendly waiter who was a real character: writing our orders on a paper napkin and then not remembering... More

Ricky's is the "big place" in the little town of Cahuita. It is hard to miss (except when it is boarded up like it was on New Year's Day). The beer is cold, the menu is pretty limited, but at least you can read it and the offerings, if basic, are sound. If you like to hang out, you can... More

We came here once for drinks, then back for a meal ,after looking at the great meals around us. My husband had the chicken fajita-amazing! I had the chicken salad, which is more of a meal with chicken, macaroni salad, Gallo pinto and salad(lettuce) very good and filling! They are meticulous with the fine details, like putting napkins under every... More
