Great views, great food and lovely rooms. Quirky bathrooms! Really nice and friendly service. Dinner was superb - amazing tuna steak followed up by chocolate brownie! Best coffee in Costa Rica so far. Make sure you don't miss sunset on the terrace with a G&T.

I have eaten at the restaurant many times, since their opening October 2015. The food is great, the bookstore sublime and the staff marvelous. The owners, Becky and Frank have created an atmosphere that draws locals from around the lake.

New management Frank and Becky opened this fresh air restaurant "Rock River Rocks" today with heavenly views to please many....due to their Rico comida and lovely hospitality! We were delighted eating the roasted veggie sandwich with goat cheese and chipolte saucy seasoning. Our friend Betsy, had a huge local burger that she could hardly get her big mouth in to....
