Stayed here for a week and had dinner here 3 times, breakfast daily and lunch/appetizers a few times more. Every meal is excellent and the staff couldn't be more accommodating! If dining in Playa Hermosa....this is the Place!

Great food and service, live music once a week, the locals come here for a night on the town. Roberto and His wife Sila are the best!

The food and service were excellent with a nice variety to choose from on the menu. And a picture perfect view of the ocean watching the moon reflecting on the water, just perfect!

We saw this place the previous evening and they were quite busy. We tried it for lunch. We got there a little after 1:00. We were the only customers. Our waiter provided just the basic service of taking our order and then delivering the order....More

I am very disappointed to see this review. Generally we get great comments about our service. Definitely the waiter should have been more attentive. I am so sorry you had this experience.

Had both lunch and dinner at Roberto's and would have had breakfast had it been available. Food was uniformly good and they use cloth napkins! (which we found rare) beautiful site on the beach.

This place was fantastic! Warm and welcoming staff. Awesome seafood, sunset views on the beach. Open air dining at its best. Local food selections and large portions. 4 full entrees and 8 top shelf drinks cost $140. Red snapper was delicious

The food was good but we were disappointed that frozen shrimp was used. We had the shrimp quesadilla and macaroni and cheese. The mac and cheese was the better of the 2 dishes. The location is just beautiful--right on the beach, huge palm trees overhead....More

Excellent drinks, sushi, and soft, not blaring, background music. One can actually hold a conversation here. Can recommend the margarita and the sashimi tuna.

We went for lunch and a little later than typical lunch hour. It was not super busy and our Service great. I think just calling when you arrive in CR will work. A day or two notice for the day you an to eat at establishment.
