The food was delicious, portions were generous, and prices were very reasonable. A must-visit for authentic seafood flavors in Costa Rica if traveling along the pacific coast. Can recommend various types of the Arroz con …!

We love to stop at this restaurant on our way home from a day in the southern zone. It’s easy to miss driving fast, so pay attention in Matapalo. I really love fried shrimp, and this place does not disappoint! The shrimp are large and...come with fries. I had 6 this last time and they filled me up just fine. For the real seafood lover, just look at the picture attached. Yes he ate it himself, but it is actually for 2 or maybe even 3 people. Totally amazing. If he isn’t eating that, he’s having the whole snapper which is also delicious.More

We had the house special platter which was excellent. Service was a little bit slow but the place is obviously very popular and busy when we visited.

We split the grande seafood dish and a shrimp appetizer. There was a lot of different types of seafood and the butter and fresh garlic broth was to die for. The price was reasonable for all this was $58 US dollars, including four beers. Our...server started out very attentive, but then deserted us. The restaurant was not crowded. All in all, I would go there again.😄More

Stopped for dinner on the way to Uvita on the advice of a friend. Had the tuna steak and it was delicious. Huge portion, almost too much cooked to perfection. Good service and prices were very reasonable.

Was recommended this restaurant, and it didn't disappoint. We had Dorado and lobster, both of which were delicious. Lots of other seafood options on the menu including Cerviche, and plenty of non-seafood options. Staff so friendly, and reasonably priced.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a tour guide. We wanted to go somewhere that the locals went. We were told that this was a place that our guide went with his family to celebrate special occasions. We were not disappointed. The wait staff...was helpful and the food was reasonably priced and delicious!More

The good was amazing. We are going back tomorrow because it was absolutely delicious. We had grilled garlic prawns, rainbow roll and snapper in a cream sauce with shrimp and mushrooms. We are stuffed splitting each plate.

My wife and I found La Langosta Feliz (the Happy Lobster) by pure chance as the meeting place for our airbnb hosts. In two weeks we ended up eating there four times. The least likely looking place to have the best sushi we've ever had!...The breaded fish fillet dish was exquisite, the fish in mushroom sauce with shrimp was amazing, the typical rice with anything was fantastic. Virtually everyone in there were locals, other than us. An absolute must-try restaurant!More

The happy lobster made us very happy indeed. They deliver good quality seafood at a good price. We had lobster, fish and shrimps and all were tasty and fresh. The food was a little and the salt side but I would go back here anytime.

We went here two nights in a row and were really happy about our meals and experience there. The portions are large, the service is prompt but relaxed and very friendly. We had perfectly cooked tuna and mounds of seafood and rice, all very good....Reasonable pricing and a great slice of local atmosphere. Don't believe the snooty reviews, this is a chill local place that is generous w their portions and not some frou-frou joint for tourists w accompanying high prices.More
