The owner/host treated us like family. The quality of the food was absolutely out of this world. We ended up coming back three times during our visit. We highly recommend this restaurant it's a must do in Costa Rica.

I have had ribs in many parts of the world but never as good as these. My wife had the grilled sea bass, semi-steamed with lemon-butter garlic. You don't leave there hungry and the service was charming.
