The food was fresh and included a catch of the day which we had grilled with a garlic butter sauce -- excellent. Many of ingredients come from the owner's organic farms like the tomatoes... More

A big thank you to Julio for making this our favourite dinner on our Costa Rica holiday. We enjoyed cocktails while watching the beautiful sunset and then had one of our best meals on our trip. There was live music. The service was amazing and made it really special. I recommend finishing your meal with the banana flambé dessert.
