Great little place right by the beach. My son and I loved the vibe and the Paella!! The sangria was wonderful. The atmosphere was very pleasant. Enjoy!!

This easily became one of my favourite restaurants in Uvita, Costa Rica. I became addicted to the sangria (drank it like juice) and I still have dreams of the Salmon cooked in a coconut sauce. *mouth watering.* The owners are adorable and the sweet chef...will come out to your table to make sure you're enjoying your meal. Love the look of the place and the quiet, easy and cosy vibe. Highly recommend.More

We were hoping for a good meal and found a great restaurant with unique offerings. The grilled squid was really good. The muscles was nothing short of spectacular with a really unique sauce with a hint if sweetness. We're light eaters but couldn't help but...ordering the sensational mushroom dish. Not only did the chef offer authentic Spanish cousine, but he came out to chat with all the diners to see how we enjoyed the food.More

My husband and I came here for dinner while we were in Uvita. It was an adorable open air restaurant with strong service. Keep in mind their english was somewhat limited. Also it does not bother us and was fairly common in costa rica from...what we saw but there were several dogs and cats wandering throughout the restaurant that our waitress said belonged to the neighbor. We had the potato tapa for an appetizer which was pretty large and then I had the chicken skewers with bananas wrapped in bacon. That was a surprisingly delicious combination. Overall I felt that the prices were a little high but the portions were large and we would likely return.More

Friendly Spanish owners, Spanish wine and beer, Spanish food, even Spanish mineral water. What's not too like? It's in a humble building down a dirt road and has only a few tables so reservations are important. It's worth the effort!

This cute little restaurant run by 2 sweet Spaniards was absolutely amazing. We ordered the mushroom appetizers and had to order a second one. Will definitely be coming back here! Food was a little pricey but sooo worth it

Loved the food here! The owners are from Spain so you can find sangria, paella, patas bravas and more on the menu! Lamb was great! There's an amazing dish on the menu with chicken, bacon, banana, grapes drizzled in a tasty sauce. Use whatsapp to...contact and make a reservation as it can get busy! I used to live in Spain and I can attest this will bring back memories!More

Incredible Spanish cuisine cooked by the family. We tried the Seafood Paella and it was world class. We room also the shrimp salad and it was so tasty and ended with a Spanish dessert. Nice vibe in the place and a great positive energy.
