They cooked our red snapper for us that we had caught that day. We had a beautiful salad platter, black beans and rice, plantains. It was all so delicious! We definitely will return.

I loved this little cafe just off of Playa Coco. The red snapper was excellent. I loved the steamed vegetables. The staff was very friendly. Highly recommended!

We have been here many times before, but it is always fine. Family-owned and very friendly. Great fruit plates, fresh fruit smoothies and basic rice and beans.

Great eats, fresh fish, and lots of food! When you enter the soda, you're greeted by a very kind and hospitable host. The food was delicious, we all had fresh fish, accompanied with beans, rice, chips, and fresh salsa. Would definitely go back.

One of my worst food experiences in Costa Rica in six years. My wife ordered a salad. It was covered in ham. The menu did not indicate it had ham. We told the server that it was not acceptable to us, and asked for a...More

A definite must visit. My husband went there for their Seafood Soup twice in 5 days and their Red Snapper meal twice too. The tastiest food in town. I had their Shrimp and Rice and that was so delicious. And their assortment of drinks was...More

Hey there! Depends on the size of the group and how busy they are at the time, I think they have around 5 or 6 tables in there that fit 4 people on each. It's possible there's a 6 seater table but my memory is rubbish I... More
