We reached this amazing restaurant by mistake while traveling the shore. The stuff is amazing, they have oven in which they cook fish and chicken, compare to the food level the price is ok. The best restaurant we experienced so far in costa rica (we are traveling for a week now)

Pros: The restaurant is literally right on the beach with nice table arrangements; I was able to sit on the sand in comfortable chairs. The food as fantastic, I could have ate 3 times as much! The menu offerings were extremely different and unique; unlike any other I have encountered. The bathroom was quirky and nice. Cons: Service was slow.... More

The restaurant has lots of character, beautifully set on the beach, you can enjoy your food hearing the ocean and at night is all candles. The food is simply AMAZING, can say the one of the best restaurant of Costa Rica. It is well flavored and beautifully presented, most of the ingredients house made. Also they change the menu often...

Amazing atmosphere - you sit at tables right on the sand facing the water, candlelight everywhere, and the waitress reads the menu to you in a soothing voice.

The restaurant is located directly at the beach.and it's just marvelous! It was the most romantic dinner we ever had-kind of cheesy;) the place is run by Italians,so be sure the food is great.it was my second time there and I would go there a third and fourth.

You cannot beat the location of this restaurant. The ambiance is perfect. Right on the beach, an excellent menu and service. I will always remember the meal I had at playa de las artistas... though the things that stand out the most are the seafood puff pastry and rosé cava we had. I cannot wait to return! Definitely one of... More

the menu at los artistas changes every day so some days are more of a pleasure than others (depending on the what fish are available and so on), but it is always amazing and original. There are always some heavier Italian specialties (e.g. pasta e fagiole or lasagna), perhaps surprising in hot weather but the ceviche and carpaccio are to... More

Loved the beach setting, and the fact the waitress's were all bare foot - nice summer beach vibe. Food was awesome and no where near as expensive as I was expecting from the reviews, comparable to several other restaurants in town. Barracuda cervice was the fav.
