We enjoyed the cantina three times during our stay in Puerto Viejo. The food is wonderful (burgers, burritos and tacos are all great and fresh, and the fries are crispy on the outside and fluffy inside). Given all the happy hour promos on drinks, these...More

From appetizers to entrees, quality of food is consistent and delicious...oh, and cocktails...the spicy margarita is a must! The staff is engaging and friendly...coupled with the outdoor dining, feels like a backyard dinner at a friend’s house. Not to be missed!

Tasty Waves is more than a humble cantina in beautiful Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, it's a lifestyle. We always strive to become your "home base", giving you local advice on where to go, what sites to see and how to get the most out of your journey or vacation. Our staff is more of a family and we always want you to feel welcome in our home. For the most part it's a relaxed atmosphere but don't get me wrong, we know how to party. Tasty Tuesday has become the biggest and most anticipated party of the week and we always show you a good time, so good that we close on Wednesday to clean up the aftermath. Thursday is Trivia Night, Friday is R.E.H.A.B., Saturday is Karaoke, Sunday Funday and Monday is our Movie Night with new and classics running on our 100" projector screen. Stop in, say hi and have a shot of Guaro with us. Tasty Waves Cantina ~ Livin' the Dream
