Well prepared, good food, nice atmosphere at dinner time. We had a pleasant experience. I wouldn't say it was gourmet quality but it was good.

Ate here several times for breakfast pre-surf and found it consistently good both in terms of food quality and service (admittedly, we were the only ones here at the time). The place opens at 7, which puts it at an advantage over many of the other local places that don't open until 7:30 or 8. Also, the advice of our... More

The food was average price and average in taste. We went the first night at 8:50 pm and it was advertised that they close at 10 pm but they had closed early.

Check the schedule to see when live music is, since that is when it is busiest. We ate there twice and once brought our own catch for them to cook. Only $8 per person with sides. All other meals were good and reasonably priced. Very good fried potatoes!

This adorable little restaurant was across the street from where we stayed. The food was delicious, all 8 of us loved our meals and drinks, and the bar and waitstaff were so sweet and friendly. Will definitely be back on our next trip!

We had a room at kaya sol and ended up staying else where, but we ate at the restaurant most every day ... The watermelon and pineapple juices are awesome .. So is the tico breakfast. I liked the cool floor and the cool tables. The guy that was there most every morning was super cool and only occasionally grumpy:)... More

Lots of people hanging out, watching sports and socializing. Great food and fun; the people who work here really seem like they have fun working here.

There were six of us, and we were served promptly. The food was fresh and presented well. The prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is authentic and peaceful.

We wandered in for lunch and I had the Wipe Out - a buffalo chicken sandwich. It was very good. I keep thinking about it. Very crispy chicken, with mozz, bacon, onions. Ok, maybe it doesn't sound that special, but give it a try! It really was very good. Also had the fish special, which was delicious and a huge... More
