A good sign that this smaller restaurant was busy, actually packed, when many others in the area were empty. Great food, great service.

Recently visited Puntarenas..Great little coastal town. Referred to this restaurant by a local and was not lead astray. Started with the wine list..in a country of "We have Sauvignon Blanc", this little gem of a restaurant had Pinot Grigio. Nice option. Ordered Caprese Salad and Pizza. Delicious. Service was spot on.
