Description: The Point...A different kind of Sports Bar.Sure we have sports on all (7) of our T.V's all the time...and sure we have hot wings and (U.S.D.A. beef) burgers...and sure we have ice cold beer and micro brew on tap, but did you know that we have local Caribbean cuisine made by the best chef south of Nicaragua?  Check out our open air restaurant/bar located on Black Beach, steps to the Caribbean Sea. A local hangout where tourists and locals come together to have a good ol' time.  So on your next visit to Puerto Viejo, top on by and say hi ya'll (before Paradise, we lived in New Orleans).  We will keep a seat warm, a cold beer, your favorite game on, and a fun time waiting for you!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I have been to "The Point" now numerous times and I can say without a doubt they have the best buffalo wings in Costa Rica!! I have been to a lot of restaurants throughout Costa Rica and so far this place definitely gets my first place vote!
You have to also try their rockin' avocado dip and chips, nothing less than awesome!!!!!

“Good food, not a good deal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I found this place to be very expensive for what was served. The food was good and the service excellent, but just pricey.

Thanks for your review. I'm happy to see you enjoyed our food and service, I do admit its not the cheapest place to eat. It does cost a lot to import the USDA beef and we do use organic chicken. We are currently working on a bocas menu So that we have alternatives to Better serve everyones price needs.

Thank you

Hit it right on the nose with this one. Thats exactly what we aim for. The only thing different is that we wanted a Saints victory.

Thanks,

“Best Atmosphere in Puerto Viejo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We visit The Point at least 3 times a week. The food is excellent (half price wings on Monday night football and all day Friday are a complete steal), the beer is cold, and while everyone else in town seems to be raising their beer prices, The Point still offers an ice cold beer for 1000 colones. They also have excellent microbrewed tap beer. The only place I know if within 50 miles with draft beer. Popeye and Tiffany are amazing hosts. From your first visit you will be warmly integrated in to the large group of regulars. Before you know it, you'll be there every day too. After visiting just about every bar and restaurant in town on our first vacation, we don't bother with anything other than The Point anymore.

“Really nice people and great Civiche”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Sit at the bar. Order beer from Sean and then get the large Civiche and split it with your sweetie. Plenty for two and a really laid back environment.

And... it is a short walk from Mother Dear. Do it!
