My girlfriend and another couple stayed in a condo in Tierra Pacifica and of course found this little bar/restaurant downstairs. We stopped in for drinks and appetizers on the second night because it was so convenient and we were all blown away at how amazing everything was. This is not your typical "diamond in the rough" find, this is like finding a Ferrari with the keys in it and a note on the window that says "Go Nuts!" We returned at least once a night for the rest of our stay. I think we tried almost everything on the menu (Not a large menu, but they have new specials often) and everything was insane. The Guac is the best we had anywhere, the tuna poki was impeccably spiced and served with papaya chips sliced and fried fresh for each individual order, the ahi salad was incredible, and the drinks were top notch. All of this for prices that were usually less than anywhere else. Garrett the owner/chef seems like a great guy from the few times we talked and Spencer, our server every night (I think he is the only one every night) was super laid back and didn't seem to mind one bit when my girlfriend changed her mind 400 times in a 30 second time span. He offered his opinion on items we asked about and we were all skeptical when he kept saying everything was awesome, but we soon came to realize that he was understating the epicness of everything immensely. I travel for a living and am fortunate enough to eat at some really great places, but everything here (seriously, everything) is some of the best food I have ever had. The French fries are even crazy good. This place is right near Playa Junquiallal and is seriously worth the trip from where ever you are coming from in Costa Rica. It is cash only so come prepared, and that reminds me, we didn't have enough cash one night and said we'd love to order more, but don't have the funds, and were told, "No problem! Order what you want and just pay us tomorrow!". Such a great find! Go here.
