Good service, decent price drinks. Seems to be the place to go for locals and visitors alike! There was a pool table and outdoor section (which we could not experience due to the pouring rain!) The outdoor in the back opens right up to the beach. Best spot for a bar, especially in Costa Rica :)

Enjoyed a light lunch and drinks on the patio with great ocean view and breeze. Frozen mango, strawberry and soursop smoothies. Food is alright. Location is awesome.

Enjoyed a few frozen beverages and a lunch on the beach at Chico's. All was tasty and the view was great! Service was fair and prices were significantly higher than anticipated.

While the food is okay, it is much better at night with dancing and drinks. It's one of the few places in town to really hang out late night and have fun.

Yea this place is good for a nice beer and go, the food it's alright,I wasn't satisfied plus the beer not cold and the service very poor. They need a fast improvement because the area is very good.

Worst food we had in our two week stay in Costa Rica, cost us 60 bucks for 3 dishes, two smoothies made out of a carton, and one caipirinha that was also bad. The one lasting impression this place left me was the 60 dollar diarrhea for two days afterward.

Alanis Morissette once sang of things that were ironic - Chico's bar could well be in that song. Isn't it ironic when you really want a beer at a bar but you practically have to twist the arm of any of the numerous staff who seem to want to do anything but get people drinks! My friends and I couldn't... More

Just as the title says. Good place to meet up, fun to watch the birds and tourists from. Both times we had to go up to the front to be able to pay, even after asking for the bill.
