Rico Tico at Si Como No Resort was great and the staff, to include manager, cooks, waiters , bartenders were delightful and very attentive. Their banana flambe -- and its presentation is a memory maker. We ordered it every night ... and let the whole restaurant enjoy its uniqueness.

The location and view was great! The food was just ok. I ordered fajitas and it was basically chicken and veggies with no tortillas. My husband ordered the fish sandwich. The service wasn't that great either.

Dear Brookeheck828: We truly regret that your experience with us was not to your expectation. We realize you thought you ordered Fajitas, which are not on the menu, but rather a traditional Casado that does not come with tortillas. Had we realized your request, we surely would have included a side order at no charge, or for that matter your... More

We stayed for 3 night at Si Como No Resort, where Rico Tico is located. We ate at the restaurant several times, for all 3 meals. Everything was delicious and the service and staff could not be more attentive. The view at the restaurant and hotel is something to die for.

We visited Rico Tico on several occasions over 3 days in the area. First the food is all very good. We had many different dishes but the fish sandwich is excellent. Two servers that did outstanding jobs, Jazmin and Steve. They will take very good care of you with a smile.
