It was OK.

Service, while friendly, was the slowest we had on our whole trip. The food was ok, the drinks were better :)

The food was below average, hard to get "rice and beans con pollo" wrong while being in the Costa Rican Caribbean! The waiter got the drinks wrong, they took an hour to bring the food and they ran out of plantains and the right type of chicken for the meal. With so many alternatives around we won't go back.

Decided to head to Ricky`s for Christmas dinner as we hadn't tried it yet and what a treat it was. the food had amazing flavours and the portion size were very good value for money. Cocktails here are very good and now we always stop in for a guaranteed good meal.

I had previously read the mixed reviews here before visiting Ricky's. Ended up eating 2 dinners here during my 4 days in Cahuita, both of which I very much enjoyed. It's not fine dining, but really good and VERY inexpensive for what you get. One night we had 6 drinks (during 2 for 1 happy hour) and 2 entrees for... More

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
