The food is pretty good and the view is nice. Large portions. The prices are expensive but that is due to the location. Their frozen lemonade is great!

The Hookup is just okay, not bad, just okay. The service is just okay too. If you are waiting for a boat to come in, it is alright for a beer but I would not eat here again.

The Hook Up is a fun little American style bar. Friends and I popped in for a quick afternoon snacks and drinks. Fish tacos were really good. Nice views of the Marina. It is definitely worth checking out.

We caught yellowfin tuna on our fishing trip with Costa Rica dreams. The Hook Up cooked our fresh catch two nights. It was delicious!! It's an easy walk from the Los Suenos Marriott.

Very nice restaurant for the area. A little expensive for the value of food but very convenient. I would rate the food quality and menu much more like a Chili's or TGI Friday's. Views are great and a nice atmosphere. The service is actually very good for Costa Rica.

Thank Tim F

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.
