“Best Restaurant in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

After touring the park, my wife and I stopped in for a couple tapas before a day on the beach. The fresh spring rolls and cocktails were so amazing we decided to come back for dinner! After munching on Tico food for a week and wanting something more "our style"... This place hit the spot. Everything was on point... Food, atmosphere, price... The owner even encouraged us to take our glasses of wine to the beach for a late night walk. It was absolutely amazing and in my opinion it is the best restaurant in the M.A./ Quepos area. The fresh spring rolls are a must and if you are eating a large meal.. Please try the fisherman a fury. Very authentic and very very very good Thai food. Cheers Bill, thanks again for making our honeymoon extra special! -Steven and Lauren

“So good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

The Thai food was the best I have ever had. The coconut milk soup was great and so was the ginger chicken. It is also reasonably priced and offers great ocean views. The service was fast and friendly.

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

This was a nice find in a town full of restaurants that are all over the board. From sitting on the side of a busy road beside people doing drugs, to places that are way too expensive because they have a view of the ocean. We were strolling looking for a place to eat and this menu was posted on the street. The owner came out to light the torches and he was very polite and accommodating, very personable. We really enjoyed our meals here. It was not terribly cheap, nor terribly expensive. We were very happy with the food, it was delicious. I am now wanting to eat lots more Thai food, I wish I knew what the recipe was. The waitress was also very nice.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I dined here whilst staying in the area, whilst the restaurant was quiet the service was good.
Food was excellent but slightly more expensive overall than other restaurants in the area.
