Amazing drinks food and service!

We stayed at the iguana lodge for a week and ate here every day. Everything on the menu is amazing. The drinks are delicious and the staff is the best I've experienced at a restaurant.

My family of three spent 2 days at the end of December. We arrived at the Iguana Lodge late Friday afternoon and had dinner Friday night at the Pearl. Friday night is always a pasta night and that Friday night featured a chicken lasagna and several salads. The food was good, but not exceptional. Service was very friendly at the... More

What a fun place to eat! Casual and tropical with a amazing view of the beach, yet the food was obviously important to the staff and prepared fantastically. Really a special treat to find such great staff and food down in the jungle!

This was a fantastic place to eat in Osa, definitely one of the top places to go out. They have affordable buffet nights and more expensive fine outings.

The Pearl of the Osa offers a great atmosphere of a beautiful grass/beach view! It is well cared for, decorated and arranged so that every table and chair can enjoy the view. It is all open to air so the breeze off the beach felt really nice on the hot, humid days! The bartenders and servers were very nice, well... More

We ate here several times, and it was easy since our room was right above the Pearl. The bartender made a special martini and offered me a sip, challenging me to guess the special ingredient. I guessed cucumber, and was right, so she gave me a free one! We loved hanging out, chatting with other guests, and soaking in the... More
