Food is good (family style). The fresh lobster was great, the other dishes we tried were fairly good (caribbean-style chicken, pork chop). Fresh fruit juice a little bit too diluted with water (pineapple especially).
Location is great, with a nice beach 1 minute away walking.
When it comes to service (we've been there twice, once for lunch, once for dinner), it was by far our worse experience in Costa Rica. The Grill was closed both time (which reduces the food choice by half), service was slow (we waited over 30 minutes both time), and the waitress we had both time... what to say... "if you're unhappy, change job". No smile, unpleasant attitude, really.
