Not a budget meal, but worth every penny! I highly recommend this restaurant that features locally organic grown vegetables and greens.

That is how I feel about Marys my favorite restaurant in all of Costa Rica. The food: Lets start here... Ingredients don't get any fresher, most of... More

Cool looking place with some pool tables - good atmosphere. Came during green season. Initially greeted at door with smiling/warm person.... took along time for someone to take our order and FOREVER to get our food. My daughter who is gluten free(no gluten free pizza available that night) ordered chips plain with just chicken and cheese. Waitress did not know... More

Had several meals at Mary's during our stay. We were brought there by friend's of the owners. The food was fantastic and fresh. ..salad, seafood, soups, deserts, etc. The food ingredients were all from Mary's farm or sourced locally. Friendly service and great fresh gourmet food....

Mary’s was one of our kids’ favorite restaurants because the staff was super friendly and there were two pool tables to keep them entertained. We mostly had the Marinara Pizza (I got light cheese) and they make their pizza’s in an authentic stone oven. They were excellent. I prefer thin, light dough with a nice semi-crunchy crust and this was... More

We had the most delicious lobster and red snapper specials for dinner. Everything from the fish to the vegetables tasted out of this world. I highly recommend this place.

We ate at this place twice during our stay over the Christmas holiday. We had pizza which was really good as well the lemon drink. We highly recommend both. The place is both casual yet somewhat upscale at the same time. We sat at a small table for two which was romantic. They also have a bar and a pool... More
