Great atmosphere, a romantic and charming place. Don't go there hungry, though, because plates are small and very expensive. Get a glass of wine and bring your bugspray.

We braved a rainstorm to go here for our one night in Montezuma - although we didn't get to partake of the view we could hear the waves and the rain, and that plus the beautiful interior and candle light made it plenty romantic. We thought for sure that they would take a credit card, but it turned out to... More

An experience you won't forget. Don't be in a hurry, sit back, relax and enjoy the delicious food and naturally elegant, yet rustic surroundings.

I went for dinner with a friend. It wasn't the first time but i had not been in a few years and I didn't remember the food well. It was an amazing experience: the raw fish apetizers (we had 4 of them) were tasty and very creative and it was definietely my best restaurant experience in Costa Rica so far.

I used to live in Costa Rica. I knew of this place, the food were never good- but the view was. But many views are. Let's tak about the food, which is nothing special at this place. The owner is ok but he has a horrible, horrible wife who has let this free view get the best of her- thinking... More

Be sure to arrive before sunset - on a non-rainy day - and enjoy the best beach sunset view ever! Food was terrific too (I had an entire freshly caught fish, yum!) and the Italian/Spanish/English speaking service very friendly. My best recommendations.

The setting is very romantic and creative. We started with a glas of wine, nice and cold. The menu was very well explained, we both had fish from the outside oven. It was delicious! And the homemade bread.....the absolute best we had in costa rica. Very good value for money. You have to visit this place when you are in... More

Unique tables in the garden under Palms with candle and moon light. Very friendly, attentative and cordial Service. Food is very good, the best we had in town. A must for a couple. Would go again.

Super fun and beautiful place for dinner. Great view of the ocean and ate by candle light. We had gnocchi with clams and a filo filled entrée. Both were excellent. Service was very good and whole place has a good vibe. Prices were typical of upper end dinner for the area.

We stayed in Montezuma for two nights and had dinner at this restaurant both nights. Why? All the other restaurants in with similar prices seemed to have less interesting menues and are most certainly not located about 5 meters from the ocean with outdoor tables to overlook the swells! We loved to sit so clise to the water while enjoying... More
