Don't be deceived when you park outside.....does'nt look like much. Well, just wait. You climb the stairs to a beautiful open dining room and some fantastic food. I had the prawns and they were amazing. Our waiter was attentive and never far away.

Service too really long. The food wasn't the great and the prices were really big. My favorite thing was the desert. The restaurant doesn't have change tables for babies. They also need to put more light it was really dark. Food was over price

The best restaurant that we ate at while on our Costa Rican Vacation. Amazing food and even more amazing, the chocolate suffley. The service was excellent and the food was a real fine dining experience. Highly recommend this restaurant. You will walk out of there wanting to come back again.

Great service in this restaurant. Our hotel concierge had informed Kapi Kapi it was our honeymoon and they really took care of us, and many members of their staff wished us congratulations which was a nice touch! Highly recommend the cerviche starter and blackened tuna.

Open air dining...great seafood. Almond encrusted grouper!!! We had a large party of two families and the service was excellent. Very attentive. Great ambiance and a nice outside bar if you want cocktails only.
