We arrived during a power cut in the area but they managed to serve a delicious meal and we ate in candlelight - we all had the tuna which was amazing and the veg were good too, they could improve on their chips (french fries) but that's being picky. After the meal, we were very fortunate to see a young... More

We had dinner here last night (2 adults and a 10 year old). We sat outside by the water. Lovely breeze. My only suggestion here would be to add one more light at the end. It was a little dark. They lit candles when the breeze died down, which helped. The view is very pretty and we had no issues... More

After a long day out and about, it is a fantastic feeling to eat fresh fish by the beach. Overall, this restaurant has many good traits. I ordered the fish and chips for dinner. It was a little small, but still delicious. We also ordered the calamari as an appetizer. I would highly recommend this restaurant for everyone, and would... More

We ate here twice during our trip to cahuita. It was amazing every time. The food is so good and the view is breathtaking: hearing the ocean, palm trees, candlelight! we even saw a mother sloth with her climb right through the palm trees as we were eating.

This place is a must! We were astounded at the quality and the beauty of this place! It was a wonderful experience !! It is right on the Caribbean Sea! We set out side and ate our wonderfully prepared dinner while gazing at the sea and watching the waves break! We loved every moment and will cherish the memory !

Probably the best restaurant in town (actually 600 meters out of town). For two reasons: - terras is direct to the sea. Nice wooden tables and candlelights: so very romantic - ate the best shrimps of my life here. So highly recommended. The restaurant is slightly more expensive than other restaurants in town. But its worth it!

Located in La Union on Playa Chiquita this is one of the few beachfront restaurants in Cahuita. It is known for its daily seafood specials that the owner/chef sometimes is able to catch himself. The chef puts an Italian twist on the seafood dishes. I have been several times and love the outside tables overlooking the ocean. My favorite time... More
