“Great location - pricey unless your a local”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Go during happy hour - it's 2 for 1. And by pricey, I mean it's $2.50 for a beer - that's cheap in the states but I guess expensive for Costa Rica. WHen our "local" friend bought beers, they were $1.50 each

“Skip food, fine for drinks”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Food was pretty terrible. They managed to mess up quesadillas to the point where they were so soggy and bland, they were barely edible. The deep fried food seemed to be the only things with no complaints. Drinks were decently priced though and service was friendly, so if you're just looking for a beer on the beach, it's not too bad.

“A Locals Hangout”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The beer was $2 (other places had Happy Hour for $1.60) but this is on the beach right at the bottom of the main shopping street (so close for walkers). An odd eclectic assortment of local ex-patriot workers and Ticos, but overall a very very fun experience. It had live music which was actually pretty good. If you're adventuresome, I'd certainly give it a try. The cerveche (fish marinade) was cheap and as good as most I had elsewhere at the more upscale restaurants.

“Loved watching the surf boarders while eating!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's a fun time to listen to entertainers and have a drink and a bite to eat was a casual setting like most of del coco beach it is definitely a place to gather with friends!
