Excellent pescado relleno, coconut shrimp and gaucamole with shrimp. Good service, very casual environment on the beach, reasonable prices. Have eaten here multiple times and will revisit on our next trip to Costa Rica.

This is the best sea food restaurant in the area. Pricing is moderate and the quality is excellent. I highly recommand this restaurant for sea food lovers.

After reading good reviews we went here. Ordered the Calamari to start. It was so chewy we couldn't eat half of it. We left before ordering dinner and went to El Velero restaurant down the path. It was fabulous. I won't go back!

Great local restaurant right on the beach! I had the tuna and my husband had a steak and both portions were huge. The tuna tasted like it had been caught that day! Service was great and they spoke English which was helpful! Would definitely recommend!!

The best shrimp cocktails, bar none. Coconut shrip is to die for, the tuna is excellent. Not a bad word about the food here. The service staff is great. The drinks refreshingly large. It is worth driving in from Cocco or Playa Panama for a...More
