My husband wanted Red Snapper for lunch so we stopped after a morning at Playa Conchal and it's a lovely little find. Food was lovely and staff very friendly and helpful. A real rustic Costa Rican restaurant - lovely

We caught a 22 pound RockSnapper and asked if they would cook it up for us. They grilled half and sauteed the other half in a garlic butter seasoned sauce (which was amazing). We were completely satisfied and our sides were very tasty. There was a mishap, however as were quoted $15 dollars, which we asked him to repeat because... More

Shared the red snapper and margs with my companion. The snapper was perfectly cooked and was flaky and moist. Margs were strong, exactly was I needed after leaving the watered down resort drinks.

This is why the 3 stars. There is seating directly on the beach and the sunset views are amazing!!! Would go back for drinks and to watch again. The menu is limited to mainly seafood and a hamburger. There are salad options but no chicken. That being said we stayed for drinks and the view and move on for dinner.... More

We came to Brasilito to do some horse back riding and enjoy the beach.. Then we found this place which was recommended by out horse riding tour guide Jose Matagalpa. The red snapper was very good. The ceviche was OK but nothing extraordinary. My wife had the shrimp cocktail which was a bit different but good after some hot sauce.... More

The portions were small, the service was forced and they take the dollar at 500 colones when everywhere else it been taken at 540-550. On top of all this they add 10% adder for a service charge...go elsewhere.

This restaurant had the best Shrimp with Garlic that I've found in 6 months of traveling in Costa Rica. The price was reasonable also. Great location, right on the beach.

While walking by, we were treated to a list of of specials by the host. It was explained in Spanish and the price of the special was spoken in English. We were told the dinner for two was 14 dollars, down from 15. When it came time to settle up he has charged us $40 for the special. We can't... More
