“Best restaurant in Playa Chiquta”

We were in Puerto Viejo and ate here 4 times - yes, that's how good this place is. All their dishes are fresh and made to order, 5 starts for service, ambiance and dishes. YUMMMM!!

“Home made food for the soul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

We ate 3 times there. The food was always excellent , with fresh ingredients and rich flavours. The place is cozy and warm, well decorated. We felt like eating at home. One of the owners, Pancho from Argentina is a great host and made our kids want to go back to see him.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

This was by far our favorite restaurant in the Cocles/Puerto Viejo area. Everything was delicious and you can tell great care and attention to detail goes into every dish!

“Oh My Godness, Fabulous Sushi Wednesday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

You could have knocked me over with a toucan feather last night, the sushi is THAT good!

Truth be told, all my meals have been fabulous there, beautiful fresh salads, perfectly done yellow fin steak, and mouth watering gnocchi.

Not to be missed!
