Great dinner

We were recommended Poseidon through another guest at our hotel. So happy we tried it. The food was fabulous and priced right. Service was great! The kids loved watching the chef prepare our meals.

The Poseidon is many things - a hotel steps from the beach or downtown shopping, a restaurant for that romantic dinner or the whole family, or a spot upstairs where you can watch your favorite sports on a beautiful flat screen tv. Tim, the owner will find you the game you're looking for. The entire upstairs can be rented for... More

Off-season special was good. Shared appetizer, we each had filet mignon then shared bananas foster. We had not been there for several years. We had forgotten how good their filet was. And they prepare the vegetables perfectly.

I enjoyed the food at the Poseidon Hotel, I would recommend going to the upstairs bar and ordering the food and having drinks up there. You can watch games being played on their large screen at the bar.

Warm beers and wines, overcooked food and the tuna tasted very fishy. Just not worth the prices. The place was empty and the atmosphere suffered. Service was fine.

The poseidon has a mix of US favorites and Costs Rican fare. Prices are a little expensive compared to other places in the area but the food is good, colonies/USD/credit cards are accepted and portions are large. I did not have a bad meal here and I returned more than once.
