“Fabulous Beach Bar-Restuarant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is the nicest little beach restaurant. Tables are on the sand with a view of the volleyball (which we played) and the ocean. Fruit smoothies are also excellent after a round of volleyball. They have great cocktails - I highly recommend caipirinha - the fresh guacamole and salasa with fresh chips are delicious. Service is friendly. Pura Vida.

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

They were getting ready to close for the season when we were there. They did a pretty decent job, but the place was looking a little run down and they were serving a limited menu, so I'd like to try it out again during high-season. It's really nice to have a place like this right on the beach.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We recently stayed on Flamingo Beach, Costa Rica and ate at this restaurant at least 7 times during the week. The owner is friendly, the food is good and the smoothies are great. Our family of 5 enjoyed every meal here.

“Good food on the beach - reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I ate here twice over the course of a week. The food is good. The cocktails and juice drinks are great! It is right on the beach with some tables in the sand. The staff is kind and welcoming. The first time it took me something like half an hour to get my check, but they were busy and I think you can't care about that sort of thing too much when you're on vacation in Costa Rica.

I would definitely eat here again. It is one of the only restaurants (maybe there are two or three total) right on this beach, so I had figured their prices would be through the roof. By local standards, I think it is certainly not cheap. But it is not bad. We had an appetizer, four cocktails, and two main dishes for around USD 42.
