Spent a beautiful afternoon here again. The new maître D, Antonio greeted us with the sunniest smile ever and it set the tone for a laid back, relaxed 😎 experience. Love the new baskets of fries

If you want a great margarita and great ceviche make sure you check out Ocean Grill. Easy hike from Boca. They only do a few seatings each day so be sure to get a reservation. Try their raicilla margarita!

This is a meal and experience that you have to work at, but it is totally worth it. You can arrive by boat or take a fairly rigorous 45+ minute hike to get there. It has a gorgeous setting overlooking the water and a secluded...More

We walked the trail into the grill in about 45 minutes, the most strenuous part being the final decline but otherwise moderate difficulty. It is shady, cool and refreshing. The food was very good but the setting, the service and the atmosphere was excellent. We...More

This was my second and last visit. The service is nice and the guacamole was good but the special drink was boring and two of us had grilled that was the driest it could possible be. Also, the veggie burger was very dry. In addition,...More

About 40 to 45 minutes. The trail is well marked very beautiful in the jungle and on the beach. If you call the grill Ernesto can arrange to get you picked up in Boca and returned later in the day.

We took a taxi, there was parking by the stream entrance. I felt safe walking. If u can take a taxi, probably recommend that. But took my girlfriend and it was completely fine walking.
