This place was great. We went for a great dinner on the rooftop patio and then would go in daily to buy some baked goods for breakfast or snacks. The staff was so friendly and the food was delicious.

We went for a late lunch and sat up on the 2nd level. It had a wonderful view. I wish we could have sat and enjoyed it longer, but the sun was right on us and it was boiling! The food was great! We had pork Casado that was cooked fresh on the grill! The waitress was great, though it... More

We loved it. The food was excellent (Ceviche and grilled fish outstanding). The view from the terrace is stunning (and it gets full quickly). We found the prices very reasonable in comparison to the other restaurants. The quality and freshness of the food is excellent, authentic. The owner and waiters/waitresses are super nice and really care for the food and... More

This restaurant has a balcony with a great view to the beach and very tasty mango juices. And it stops here.. The service is very bad, we made a reservatuo and they didn't have our table when we arrived, after waiting 10min we saw the waitress giving our table to another couple ("that's alright, we sit on the balcony bar")...

We randomly popped into this place to grab some ceviche and because they have a beautiful covered balcony. The service was decent, but it's the view, the breeze on a hot day and the ceviche that earned this place a 5 star review. We anticipated only grabbing a quick bite to eat, but we ended up spending 2-3 hours watching... More

I stoped at this place for breakfast. Costa Rican breakfast was good but it could be better. The waitress was totally unatentive. The best is the fresh bread they have every morning. I recommend the banana bread.

This restaurant is a great value - prices are very reasonable, the food is fresh, the kitchen and restaurant clean, and they even sell baked goods (get the pineapple upside-down cake!). The upstairs dining area offers a view of the bay.
