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

We stopped by for a snack and cold beer in the afternoon. We weren't impressed. The seafood Ceviche was poor, and and it's overpriced for what you get. The view is great and the beer is frosty cold, but there are literally a dozen other restaurants lined up on the beach with the same views. Give another one a try... More

We had beers on the deck here and watched the sun set over the Pacific. The beers were ice cold almost, but not quite freezing. The deck is very comfortable and service is great. Great place to relax in SJDS!

I have been looking for good Ceviche since I arrived in SDJD. I found it here! The Ceviche was tart, with just the right mix of red and green peppers, as well as onion and cilantro. It was perfect. Maybe, just maybe I will go back for dinner!

Stopped in to watch the sunset and get an appetizer. We tried to order a few different things, but they didn't have any of them. We got coffee drinks from the coffee place inside Josseline's instead.

Terrible, bad food. I ordered "ceviche" and the fish was hard and old, not fresh. Also ordered lobster in a garlic sauce, awful. I don´t like to make bad comments, but this I need to inform. I don´t recommend this restaurant.
