The La Costa de Papito Restaurant is one of the best natural stylish & charming places in the Puerto Viejo area. Great art work from wood and Caribbean paintings & sculptures. The breakfast buffet is rich and we loved our fresh made omelette or breakfast burritos in the mornings. A Burger for lunch with damn good French fries before hiding... More

This restaurant is the standard by which we judge all others in the area. My wife and I are retired expats from California and she was a chef in her working days. She is hard to please and rather fussy because she knows the difference between chefs that know what they are doing versus the pretenders. We've eaten at every... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here for lunch on our way out of La Fortuna. Our waiter Andres was extremely nice and the food was great. I never would have thought that the best burger in my life would come from Costa rica! 5 stars!

The food was absolutely delicious. They have a larger dinner menu on days that they don't have live music- unfortunately on those days the restaurant was quite empty. But their food is wonderful and the waiter was very friendly and attentive. I ate there several times and every meal was wonderful. My favorite meal was when they had their Caribbean... More

It was a lovely space, the the food was lacking :( It seemed like they were trying to americanize both their restaurant and caribbean food, the result of which wasn't great.
