“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

This was by far my favorite bar/restaurant. It looks like a mechanics garage, and the owners park their motorcycles inside next to the dining tables. The floor is cement covered with sand and dust, no A/C, but they have overhead fans that keep the place cooler. It's located across the street from Witches Rock Surf School and Eat At Joe's restaurant. The service is excellent and the food is truly authentic Costa Rica - including black beans, rice, salad with cilantro & an awesome dressing I can't describe, as well as plantains. That's what I had, but my partner ate something different each time and loved it equally. The price is very reasonable and the beer seems to be the coldest in town.

“Great sports bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

We first found ourselves at FT's 18 months ago, and as we planned our return to Costa Rica, we planned our return to FT's. It was actually our first stop when we pulled into town this trip. It's a sports bar, nothing fancy, but they have the best burrito in town. The staff is always welcoming. Our favorite Costa Rican bar, hands down.
