We ate here several times during our stay at Costa Paraiso and were not disappointed. Reservations were necessary even though were were hotel guests because the place is also popular with the local expatriates. They have good seafood and smoothies. The atmosphere is fairly unbeatable....More

We had great expectations about this restaurant. Unfortunately the dishes we ordered came cold. The pork ribs were very dry and the vegetables were overcooked.

Incredible food, from the sandwiches to the salads. Made more incredible by the amazing scenery and the crashing of the waves. We had the PorkQue No, a hamburger and a salad. All were delicious,
