South on the beach and over the rickety bridge to this fun beach bar where there is usually a good crowd of ex-pats, Tico's and tourists enjoying the cold beer and excellent food. Seems like there is always something going on with live music frequently featured. Try their famous meat loaf. Very good.

Very cool beach location, great service, food tasted great, but so sad to see Tico feel fading away. Wish local Latino music was more common here than American.

Great food, nice owner, and a diverse crowd of gringos to Tico's make this joint a local favorite.

Try anything with the mashed potatoes. Home style comfort food at it's best.

Great little beach bar. It's a little off the beaten path but a great spot to have a beer and pass the day away! I didn't find it until my last day in Costa Rica but it will be my first stop on my next visit!

This was at the end of the public beach and we had to look for it. We had the fish and chips--which wasn't your typical English fare.
The fish was excellent and the price was reasonable. We also had a few of the local beers. There were only a few people there when we were, but we were told that this is usually a very busy place.
