Excellent,wholesome food and service! Appears to caters to Americans as all prices at the restaurant and resort were listed in $USD. You can only get there by walking about 1 mile along a dirt road/beach. Take your time headed in enjoying the waking wildlife and on the way back stop by the ASVO turtle conservatory (Association of Volunteers for service... More

This restaurant is worth the trip. The energy smoothie drinks are great and the food is beyond exceptional. We had fish tacos and the chicken wrap. The organic and house made goodies are to die for. the only complaint I would have is that this restaurant is not car accessible. You will need to walk through town, onto the beach... More

We chose this resort because of the Vegan menu.....they did not disappoint! Delicious healthy breakfasts and dinners with many choices and perfect portions. The wait staff was wonderful and greeted us each meal with a smile. On a tour of the property with the owner, we realized how some of the ingredients come from their own harvest (coconuts, etc) and... More

We had a great dinner in a beautiful place, near the beach, with lots of stars over our heads. It was a tasty pasta. All was perfect!

Fantastic food just a few steps from the beautiful beach. The people are very sweet and friendly, and helped us pick out a great dinner with drinks. It definitely is more of a tourist location versus where the locals go, but the food was great if you're interested in a nicer, or more romantic, place to eat.

Lovely creative food, especially the fresh fish dishes. The restaurant staff were very attentive, and friendly. It was a treat to get to know them during the week we spent at the resort.

Every meal was enjoyable--the selection was great from authentic Costa Rican dishes to Italian pastas, risottos, curries and fresh fish.
