Pitty about the rain :( but lets hear it for the staff :)

We booked the perfect table at Playa de los Artistas, Unfortunately the heavens opened and the table we booked was washed out. However, the staff realising this would happen reserved us a table in the dry covered area. The food was very good the ambiance was lovely, this is definitely a class... read more

My boyfriend and I went here and loved it! The menu changes every day and the staff is very helpful about explaining each item. Everything looked so good that we both ordered two entrees, and although we were uncomfortably full afterwards, we were happy we did! And the atmosphere is very romantic, but make sure to go before sundown as... More

While we have had several really good dinners during our four week trip, this was by far the best. The food was good, not to mention just that little bit different in flavor from many other places, but it was everything on top of that, that made this our favorite dinner. Sitting in relaxed chairs right on the edge of... More

This is my #1 Montezuma restaurant. I've eaten there probably 6 times on 4 different visits and it's always superb. This is no-frills outdoor dining on the beach, so don't expect elegance. But the environment is like no other. An the food is spectacular too, especially for Costa Rica.

Perfect spot for romantic dinner - you sit on cosy, candle-lit tables near the waterfront. Food was delicious and the staff very attentive

How much better can it get? Seeing the sun go down in the Pacific, sipping down a glass of wine or a cocktail and enjoying the one of the best mediterranean menu.

We usually eat at the budget places but made an exeption after hearing good things about this restaurant. It is pricey, but so much worth it! The menu is very original, the service very good, as they explain every dish in detail in spanish or english, the food tasted very good! and the setting is all romantic with candle light... More

I read about this restaurant in the guide book we had and it exceeded our expectations. The food was phenomenal and the atmosphere amazing. If it wasn't for the rain...it would have been one of the most incredible dining experiences with the view but it still was wonderful. My friends and I decided it was the best meal of our... More

An excellent restaurant. Sit in chairs on the beach and enjoy excellently prepared food and drink. (Try the rum and mango!) The whole fish is delicious and a beet and local cheese plate was divine.

My family and I, a group of 11,all went to eat at Playa the los Artistos.Luckily It was a full moon night. So beautiful. We were all seated together, one big table in the sand, by the edge of the ocean. Great atmosphere with candles and lounge music. Great service. From the look of it,and what the others took, all...
