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

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
