We had the opportunity to eat (and go fishing... 3 times!) with Leo @ the Ebenezer. The food was fantastic, and he is such a wonderful person. The fish was excellent, and I'm pretty sure caught fresh that day. They have ice cream that is...awesome as well.More

My husband and I had a delicious meal tonight at Ebenezer after a full day fishing tour with the owner, Leo! For dinner I had the fresh whole snapper and my husband had a Casado with Pork Chop. My fish was cooked to perfection and...came with crispy patacones and a really great green salad. In the day we fished with Leo and had a fantastic day on the water. We caught tuna, Mahi-Mahi and a catch and release Sail fish!! We will be back to the restaurant and for the fishing tours and we highly recommend both!!More

I have been eating there for long time since they were at Cantina. This place is my favorite Tico food restaurant not just in Pavones in Costa Rica.

Family surf trip Amazing is one of many words our family would use to describe the hospitality of this man and his family! We ate some of the best ceviche I've ever had and Leo took our family on the best fishing charter I've ever...had ! We caught 16 yellow fin tuna and had the most amazing whale breach experience! Leo made it a point to make our trip memorable and then made us fresh sashimi for dinner ! We will never forget our experiences with our children , families and friends. I definitely recommend visiting this family and All the amazing things they have to offer ! You will not be disappointed!More

Amazing is one of many words our family would use to describe the hospitality of this man and his family. The food was excellent and I’ve never seen a cleaner restaurant in my life . Leo takes pride in his home and cares for you...like your a part of his family. Honest, genuine, generous, and a true gem of The community. Pavones was a special place to visit and Leo was amazing. Take the time to visit and stop by Enenezer’s for some food, or fishing, or surfing, trips to Matapalo, rooms to stay or the comfort of feeling at home!More

We ate dinner here every night during our family surf trip in Pavones. Great food, prices and service. Leo and his family made our trip. Not only is the food great, but they also took us fishing (caught 12 yellowfin tuna), a boat trip to...Matapolo (saw monkeys and surfed) and we rented ATV’s.More

Ebenezer is noted in Pavones for keeping regular hours even in the rainy season. It's an easy location to find and get to (bus stop off the main road towards the river). The menu is varied including breakfast and they will adjust for vegetarian too....The fried chicken is especially good, chalupas are a favorite made with a crispy taco shell "boat", casado plates and seafood are tasty and filling. The prices are fair and there is an ice cream counter on premises that serves cones and treats including banana splits. If you just want a snack the limonada and nachos are worth a stop. This is a family business that offers other services...boat tours, fishing, guided jungle tours on atv. They do laundry too. If you want their contact info, current hours...check them out on facebook Ebenezer Pavones.More
