Another great spot to dine in Drake Bay

Our B&B owner suggested that we eat here for our last night in Drake Bay. It's practicially on the beach. The seafood is about as fresh as you'll find anywhere and absolutely delicious. Every entree comes with rice and beans and fresh salad. It's a fabulous place to have a relaxed meal.

we went with four people and the restaurant was pretty packed (which means: six tables were occupied but it is in general a small restaurant) However, I am pretty torn here to write this review because I had a perfect prepared red snapper at this place which was just delicious. On the other hand, we waited quite long for drinks... More

We stayed in Drakes Bay for 6 nights and ate here most evenings. The food was high quality and imaginative. A really good chef works here for sure.Amazing for somewhere off the package tourist route. There was always a good atmosphere here. My only wish is that it stayed opens little later!

My husband & daughter dropped in one afternoon for lunch and we had to go back for dinner with the whole family! My son had a shrimp pasta dish that was FILLED with shrimp. My chicken burger was one of the best I had ever eaten. And the hamburgers are great too!!

Wonderful choice of ceviche and good seafood make this place a winner. Closer to beach than other restaurants. You never know when it will be closed, however, or out of fish. When we were in Drake, nobody could get any snapper!

The cooking here is delicious! My favourite dish is the arroz con camarones but anything you eat here, you will leave full and content. The casados, ceviche, and sea food dishes are a hit and wouldn't miss out on. Its also a great place to have a beer after your day on tour or at the beach and relax. Chino... More

This place was very nice with a good choice of menu. I am a vegetarian and had vegetarian fried rice there. Was very tasty. The natural juices were also great! Close to drake bay beach.

The first impression was horrible. My fried fish was overlook and there was one server taking care of the costumers. My wife had the vegetable rice and loved it. So we went back a second time and I order ceviche and it was spectacular. However, again it was just one server. At one point he changed his t-shirt because he... More

After reading the recommendations we decided to eat here. Disappointment. The staff didnt really look at you, let alone speak. I ordered a main and my boyfriend a starter and a main. We had to wait almost an hour for our food and when it came they made the wrong dish for my boyfriend. Eventually they brought the ceviche (starter)... More

Considering all restaurants in Drake bay are an extension of the cook's family house, you expect to have TV always on with soap opera or soccer. Waiter is not very friendly as it seems he never leaves his 'house'. Food is good though, very 'home style'.
