the food was very very good. each time we go we enjoy it so much. Ambiance is lovely. No sea views but in the evening eating by the pool is charming. Grandchildren swam in the pool while waiting for dinner. Loved it

Good place to stop at the Quepos marina after a day of fishing while you wait for a cab. We weren’t welcomed or helped for quite a while which was too bad but the food ended up being pretty good. Nice open air restaurant. Comfortable.

Z Gastro Bar is an adventure in Costa Rican gastronomy, a culinary exploration of great dishes artfully presented. The food is almost too beautiful to eat, but it’s the taste that will transport you. Located in the splendid Marina Pez Vela in Quepos. Z just might be the seaside dining experience of your life.
