Fun place to eat and hang out

My wife had lobster tacos w/salad and mashed potatoes and I had pork Portuguese style (pork cooked in white wine and olive... read more

This place is not just about food, it's the evening social hub of Playa Chiquita and does a good job of it. The dining is outside by moonlight and candles and if I remember hanging lanterns. The bands and singers are different every night and really good for a small little village, in fact on some night they will blow... More

My kids and I ate here one evening. They had pizza and I had the fish tacos. They thought the live band was cool and the atmosphere was similar to a bar more than a restaurant. The staff really struggled with English and I really struggled with Spanish, so it worked out! The 13% tax and 10% tip were added... More

At the end we only ordered some guacamole. I went to the restroom before and was not comfortable with the smell, so I didn't even go, quickly ordered some snack and left.

The setting is very pretty outdoor dining on the sand and palm parasols. Their Pork Portugese and pastas were so impressive! We had ice cream at our casita so missed their desserts,, We would love to go back!

Our first stop in CR was in Playa Chiquita for four days and our second stop was at Labeila. The food was absolutely top rate and my favorite was the lobster tacos. The recipe is Rita's own and tremendous. The night we were there was extremely busy but the service was wonderful. Rita, Lesee, and Richardo outdid themselves and the... More
