Stopped in one night with friends. This place is relaxed and friendly, even has a little play set to entertain your rowdy kids while you eat. The fish was delicious, would definitely recommend that. We got a free rum drink with our meal, which is always welcome! Would also recommend the tostones, a great spin with local queso.

This was the first spot we ate at in SJDS. A little on the pricey side but the views of the ocean was spectacular! I had a very simple Nica Breakfast and my friends had the ceviche! Both were very good! The coffee was great and service was exceptional!

We went to josselines for an afternoon meeting. The coffee and cookies were great, and so was the service and atmosphere. When the meeting concluded, we decided to stay for dinner. Yuck! The lobster ceviche was spoiled and we could smell it as soon as it was placed on the table. Next came the grilled fish which was actually a... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant for our evening meal before going on our turtle tour. I had the veggie spaghetti and my partner had the chicken spaghetti - both were so beautiful. I had a mocktail (due to taking travel sick pills from Ometepe Island) which was just as good as the real thing! Cannot recommend this restaurant... More

Our resort recommended this and it didn't disappoint. Good Happy Hour, $1 for cold beers, and they had a big menu with lots of options. I went with waiter recommendation of garlic shrimp and it was good. Waiter was very sweet with the kids - no kid menu but they have plenty of options (spaghetti, chicken soup).

My wife and I have been coming to San Juan del Sur for the past 24 years and own investment properties here. We have seen things change dramatically here, some things for the much better and some things not so much. Josseline is definitely one of the restaurants that has done a great job. The service is excellent, the food... More

This is perfectly situated for sunset. An issue I had is the happy hour deal. They advertise it for beer amongst other drinks. The waiter said the beers they offer is Tona and Victoria but never explained the offer is for Victoria only so my friend who got an Tona paid 50 not the 30 he was expecting. I thought... More
