We ate dinner at Agua Azul last Tuesday evening. The red snapper was nicely seasoned and the sauce was flavorful with a hint of curry. The portion was a bit too large for me, but my husband gladly finished it. While the meal was good, we felt that it was a bit overpriced for a bar. We had 2 entrees... More

We stopped by cafe Azul on our way back from the beach. What a wonderful stop. The view is spectacular and the shrimp bruschetta was so delicious. Very refreshing on a hot day. As we sat there enjoying, the chef was taking fresh red snapper off a truck from The local fisherman for the catch of the day. The service... More

Atmosphere was a little hectic but service and food were great - basics were solid, fish was perfectly cooked and portions were large. Probably our 2nd favorite after Claro Que Si.

We wanted somewhere to eat late afternoon and we found Cafe Agua Azul, so thought we would give it a try - very glad we did! The calamari starter (which we shared) was delicious and for the main course we had freshly caught snapper (shared) as well as the pasta special and a huge 1lb Burger - all very tasty.... More

Ate here twice during our week vacation in Costa Rica. There is something for everyone on the menu - burgers, sandwiches, seafood. Nachos are delicious as well as the seafood specials. Staff was friendly and attentive. You don't want to miss eating here!

Owned now for several years by a couple of US expats, this iconic establishment only improved under their new direction. Arguably they have the best view of the Bay from this location. They've also augmented what was the original menu to the point where they really offer up some of the best fair in the MA area. To beat all... More

This place has a great view overlooking the ocean. Food is greater but it's a bit in the pricey side.

This was the Best meal we had in Costa Rica! To start the service was great. We had a middle aged server who was really fun and genuinely nice. Food was Delicious. Try the calamari - they are outstanding. I'm not even a big calamari fan - I find them usually chewy and tough. However, I was tempted in by... More
