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

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

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. I did enjoy the 2 margaritas. The pollo casado was actually the best casado I have had over 3 meals in Costa Rica. The waiter... More

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.

The spanish style nachos were a great snack which my wife did't love but I thought were delicious. Main attraction for us was... More
