We had good service and dinner here. It was a quiet evening and we had tremendous value for what we ordered. Staff was playing a very eclectic mix of music, everything from Sinead O'Connor to Latino fusion. It was a fun experience!

Great venue perfect for a large gathering of family and friends in SJDS. Relaxed atmosphere and good service with an extensive, tasty menu that has something for everyone. Would have rated as 5-star, but occasional wafts of sewage from a nearby village drain compromised our, otherwise, excellent experience.

Service is great, restaurant is relaxed, gorgeous clean island setting under thatched roof overlooking pacific ocean. Portions are huge and pretty good. Overall though, it's the pina coladas we kept coming back for!

Then we ordered dinner, our food was very good and the portion size very... More

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
