We are here several times this trip. One night for dinner they prepared the Spanish mackerel we caught that day deep sea fishing. It was delicious. That is something they will do if you get it to them by 4:30. Never have had a bad experience with food here!

Went there for dinner with a total party of 15. They were very accommodating about setting a table that large. The food was typical fair and neither terrible nor very good. This place is located in the Los Suenos Marina & all of the restaurants there seem to be overpriced. Better good at better pricing in Jaco,

I don't think anyone goes to Costa Rica for the food! But, The Hook Up was my family's go-to restaurant for dinner while at Los Suenos for a couple of weeks.

Stopped here as soon as we arrived at Los Suenos. The view was great, but the food was just ok. Service a bit slow and uninspiring. Was expecting more.

We stayed at the Hemmingway condos and ate here 3 times! The menu offers such a variety we are there once for lunch and twice for dinner. They deliver within the property so we didn't have to go out to eat after our long days of sight seeing. The food was delivered promptly-hot and accurate. We loved the ceviche-so fresh... More

We had dinner here on our first night in Costa Rica. My daughter and I had salads and my husband had a burger. Both were very good and the view of the harbor and mountains in the background are beautiful. We came back for breakfast another day.

Description
The Hook Up, located on the second floor of the Marina Entry Building, boasts one of the country's premier locations, offering patrons a 270-degree panoramic view of the marina, Herradura Bay and the surrounding mountains. This relaxing venue offers a pleasant combination of the old American classics like fish n' chips and global comfort food, including homemade breads, desserts and sauces. The Hook Up is a laid-back environment where you can enjoy a mix of classic rock and Latin pop tunes played over our state-of-the-art stereo system. Major sporting events are displayed on seven televisions located throughout the restaurant, with the most important matches projected onto the video-wall over the bar.
