Disappointed

Our party of 8 ate here. Nothing to write home about. Great views but the food was average. Service was good. Nothing bad but just not special and when we spend over 300 dollars I expect special

This place is full of interesting contexts-- the food was good, very good: I had the whole red snapper which was delicious. But they were out of several items on the menu.. The goofy thing is the seating which is somewhat uncomfortable. Chairs sat on gravel were uneven. I would go back-- knowing what I know now, i would be... More

We were recommended by a tour guide to try this restaurant. The view was amazing as was the choice of food and service. Traditional Costa Rican food, sushi and delicious fish tacos. Well worth a visit for lunch or dinner. The sunset would be amazing

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and since it had some nice reviews we decided to visit. We ordered the house specialty lobster for two but were very sadly disappointed. One lobster had an awful bitter taste and a strange consistency. The other were better but still not very good. We complained and after got as apology that this was something... More

We came a little too late for what would have been a great sunset view. Our waiter joked and put a picture of the sunset on our table and said "this is what it normally looks like." We still had a memorable evening though. Great food and drinks and great service...what more do you want?

Visited with another couple. Enjoyed the food, the view, and the "entertainment." A man with a guitar visits each table singing a tune. It was fun. He came back two other times. We just laughed and shrugged it off. We thought if we over tipped and said, "Thanks," he wouldn't come back. Ooops, our bad. Food was okay, happy hour... More

Expected a wonderful meal and service. Instead, we got very high prices and totally scattered service with some meals coming after others were through.when all orders were placed at the same time. Quality of food was so so. Disorganized staff even argued at times between themselves when more family arrived and another table was needed.We had a very large family... More
