“Waste of time and they have own exchange rate. Stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Stopped by cause stayed very close, no one recommended and I can see why drinks are expensive with no alcohol in them and they have there own exchange rate there so don't pay with dollars like everywhere else in Costa Rica cause this restaurant will rip you off much better options, stay far away.

“Needs some help”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We only ate dinner there. Seemed on par with a Applebee’s with the same corporate feel about it except it is located in a swampy area. Was way overpriced and service was mediocre and slow. The staff seemed challenged or afraid to make decisions on their own and, had to check with the owner on even simply things. Our group got the feeling it was tourist trap and they were trying to squeeze a buck out of everything. .
