Food was pretty damned good and decently priced. I wouldn't say it is cheap by Costa Rican standards but by american prices, it's the same. The view is pretty and very scenic!

This is the only place we ate twice at during our stay. First time was for dinner because they had live music. Dinner was incredible. We came back for breakfast and everyone ordered breakfast typico. Not only was it cheap but absolutely delicious and a must try.

We liked it so much we went back a second time, and with so many great restaurants to choose form, this is a significant statement. Live music with dancing the night we were there.

The burgers were delicious and the prices reasonable. I especially liked the nice ocean view. The staff was very, very friendly and polite, and the service in general very good.

This place is not in the national park. It's on the main road about a 10 minute drive away from the park and up on a hill. Staff and the owner/manager are all amazing! The best happy hour prices and the tapas is always so tasty!!! Did I mention the view??? If you're lucky, the orange monkeys may also pop... More

This is a tapas bar and restaurant. We shared a shrimp tapas as an appetizer and one was large enough for two to taste. It was yummy. I had a delicious arroz con pollo and my husband, a fish dish. We were pleased. Prices were average.

we arrived at this place for lunch one day - almost by accident. We just loved the food - and the service. They have a nice terrace with nice views. The food was tasty - we had one of the best tuna ever. We ordered mahi-mahi, quesadilla and tuna - everything was very tasty.

Great food and view. Try the guaro sour Tico drink. It looked like it might be for sale so I hope it stays
