We ate here a few times and the food was great every time. They have a good selection of seafood and sauces to go with them. The staff there is fantastic, always with a smile.

The chef surprised us with a delicious Carribean cake with chocolate ice cream afterwards. We were so happy... More

Alex is a very inventive and experienced Chef. Great fresh food every night. Accommodating in every way. Did I mention he loves to bake!!!! The pastry smells wafting from the kitchen in the afternoon are intoxicating. I hope he gets to read this. If there is no soup on the menu and you are in the mood just ask around... More

I really enjoy lunch in this place, not was a problem that I came at 3 pm the service of Minerva was exceptional and the food very fresh, if you go try the Caribbean sauce on fish is excellent some days they have live music and the place is relaxed.

The service is impeccable and the food delicious. A little bit taken by surprise of the overly "French twist" to their cuisine. The atmosphere is quiet and fun. Lovely spot to have a romantic dinner.

We really enjoyed the ambiance and the food was excellent. Our server did an excellent job of helping us with my allergy and dietary needs and was able to adapt dishes for me. It was our most romantic night out.

The food here is very good, and well-priced based on what we've seen at other places in the area. It was almost empty the night we went (although we went fairly early in the evening, and that may have had something to do with it. Our server was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, they were out of several things on the... More

Eating out in Puerto Viejo was more costly than I anticipated so I appreciated their $7 lunch deal. (Everything on the menu $7)
