even my kids liked it :)

My kids loved this place and we loved the view. An easy walk down the beach from Playa Flamingo hotel with good basic food and a friendly staff. You could watch your drinks and food being prepared if you sat inside and the beach seating was lovely. We ate here more than once on our vacation.

This is a local gem. My wife and I ate here on our honeymoon. Amazingly, we were the only customers at the time, which I believe was a Wednesday night. We at on the porch and enjoyed a wonderful meal of sushi and ceviche. My advice, if you are at a resort in or near Playa Flamingo, do not pay... More

Our family of four stopped in on a Wednesday night and had a great experience! The ceviche was the best we've had in CR, which is saying a lot considering we order it everywhere we go. The sea bass was tender and the citrus was flavorful but not overpowering. The sushi was delicious and was prepared by hand after we... More

The smoothies were really good and healthy but I think they need to offer more. We never did see sushi but would have tried it if we saw it. Perhaps additional baked goods would help. It just is missing something.

My husband and I had dinner there tonight. Two for one sushi between 5 and 6pm. Great deal. This is not "to die for" sushi but it was really good and considering there aren't very many sushi restaurants in the area, it was a treat. The owner was attentive, explained up front that eel was not available to help us... More

We had 2 rolls and a ceviche. The ceviche was great and a little spicier than your typical ceviche, which I enjoyed. Both rolls were very tasty and well made - the rainbow roll was good, but the tuna roll was my favorite.

Tried to eat there 3 times now. Every time they are closed. After eating at a different place we drove by and actually saw people working there! It's alive! Asked the girl when they were open and she said every day from 12 to 9.....hmmm strange. Oh well I will be back tomorrow! She said ok. Next night it was... More

I believe that it may have been the owner's son who made our sushi today. We ordered at 3:00 p.m. and didn't get our sushi until 3:45! He appeared to be moving in slow-motion. The sushi came with some packages of soy sauce, but no wasabi or pickled ginger. Truly disappointing, given the other good reviews here. Perhaps this boy... More
