Just returned from a Roots 2 Rise Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica and Rico Tico Jungle Grill was wonderful. Omar (and everyone else) provided such great service and delicious food. The views are spectacular. Can't wait to return!

The kids had a great time playing in the pool and ordering smoothies and snacks at the poolside bar while we enjoyed 2 for 1 drinks during happy hour. Ronal was an amazing bartender and Omar seemed to be working there 24x7 to make sure everyone was having a... More

Rico Tico Grill is one of the high lights of the wonderful Sicomono Resort. The food is amazing throughout the whole day. The staff is very professional, friendly and are always smiling! We had our whole family there for a few days and we all thought it was amazing. Omor and Didier were outstanding employees. Kentucky says Hello!!!

I had the snapper with sangria, my vegetarian wife had the bruschetta and a salad, the kid had spaghetti. All were cooked to perfection, but the real treat was the bananas flambé. Well played Didier, well played.

We stayed in Si Como No and used this restaurant for lunch a few times in addition to the included breakfast buffet. Food distinctly average but the worst was the waitress who just did not smile once during our whole stay. She obviously hates her job and was stomping around with a face like thunder the whole time. Off-putting to... More

We kept coming back! No need to explore other restaurants because of their diverse menu. Everything we tried was delicious. Fresh fish daily, prepared three different ways as well as many other choices so something for everyone regardless of age or food preferences. Most often, Alexander was our waiter and a true delight, but everyone was great.
