“Slow service, good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

Live music on the night we went. Slow service, but they were busy. Food was good, drinks average. Comfortable seating.

a few blocks walk down a DARK road and there's Gilded Iguana lit up like an oasis ... casual dining and a friendly bartender

“Decent food small portions ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2015

The food was ok but the portions were rather small and it was a little pricey. Appetizers showed up with our meal so service was a little slow

“Great GREAT food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2015

This was one of the best meals we had in all of Costa Rica- in fact, pretty much the best meal in a long time. Shrimp curry was GREAT! Service was definitely a little bit lacking- the only thing making it short of 5 stars

“Excellent seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2015

Really good seafood and service at this place. Try garlic octopus if they have it or fresh tuna. The place also has very good free WiFi. You just need to ask for the password.
