the food was not bad, attention was not bad, very nice beach, but very few people and prices a little high for something that does not come standard.

They have a hostel behind the hotel which is away from the partiers, able to use pool, great staff. Food was excellent for snacks and breakfast as well.

Best bloody marys in town. A little over priced but worth the trip for lunch or dinner. Service is ok , view on the beach is awesome.

Food was just OK, but table service was really poor. We didn't have a nice experience at the Dharma Restaurant the past week. Food menu is pretentious and one of the only 'foodie' options in town. We ordered a tiradito and the mushroom ceviche (veggie), we didn't like any of the dishes (that's on us, as it was our choice).... More

Upscale on the Montanita scale. Better liquors than the other identical places (had a Grey Goose martini). Right on the beach with club-style seating. Plus foosball! Different ceviche than others in town, including Peruvian.

Ir's actually in Montanita, not PL. Good food and Dharma is a sweetheart, but it's in a tourist town and you will pay tourist prices.

Have been to Dharma Beach a couple of times. The view is outstanding. Food is good, drinks can be expensive, and the service is often slow.

Our group rarely left the comfortable lounge-booths of this beachside bar-restaurant. Food was delicious, uncomplicated fare -- fried fish and burgers, salads, ceviche, some traditional Ecuadorian and Peruvian dishes. We ate here three meals a day for two days and everything was delicious. I wish I was sitting there with a Corona right now.
