Ended up here as our intended place was closed (was a Monday night) and this place looked fairly busy when we walked passed.
Fish of the day had such peppered vegetables that I could barely eat them and the fish was blackened on the underside. My Cuba libre-rum and coke tasted off, so I sent it back and received an equally off tasting second one. Children's meal chips where over cooked. Partners meal was average but expensive for what he got. The staff were not very friendly and genuine. We noticed that on table next to us a family sent back two of their meals as they were cold.
Also they had a 2 for 1 cocktail happy hour but for some reason you couldn't have it if you were eating, you had to be at the bar to get the deal - strange way to treat customers who are spending quite a bit on food already?!
On the plus side, place had a nice vibe and they gave young children crayons and paper to keep them entertained during their meal however this didn't make up for the poor quality, overpriced food. Sadly one of the worst meals we've had when eating out in CR over the past month, we won't be going back, if you have to go there, best to hit the bar and aviod the food. Tourist trap.
