Second time eating here. Nice that they enclosed part of the dining area. Grilled yellow tail was wonderful.

They have a special 2 for $35. This includes one appetizer, two entries, one desert. We usually get two appetizers and no desert. I recommend the filet minion or fish. This price includes tax and tip. We usually tip extra. Only drinks are extra. Or you can order off the regular menu.

I ate here with my bride almost 2 years ago. The restaurant is on a nice little street about 125 meters (on a long street) from the beach. The food was good but not great. I recommend it as the prices are reasonable and the wait staff friendly. A good place to sit for drinks as well! Peace!

Poseidon had a movie night for kids upstairs and the adults had a great get together down stairs the other night. We all enjoyed the night.

I'm an expat that lives in Playa Hermosa Costa Rica...since my first time going to the Poseidon it has turned into one of my favorite places to eat or just get a refreshing drink (I highly recommend trying one of their "el Mono")...whether you want breakfast, lunch or dinner (dinner often offers live local musicians playing)...I honestly don't think you'll...
