“Drinks, Sunset, Food -- Fantastic!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

A terrific sunset with plently of clouds to add to the beauty. An ice cold pitcher of margaritas followed by a wonderful meal with family. The lobster roll appetizer was amazing, the filet was grilled perfectly, the yellow fin tuna and swordfish were excellent and the seafood with coconut milk was another winner. The waitstaff with Leo in charge did a wonderful job of serving. A perfect evening for some family members who are first time visitors to Playa Flamingo.

“Incredible sunset, beautiful setting and excellent food”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

My husband and I went for dinner on our last night in Costa Rica. We were staying at a nearby bed and breakfast, and the owner made a reservation for us as well as had them come and pick us up and bring us home. That's not something you see too often. We arrived before sunset and sat upstairs in the open air lounge. The views are really spectacular. We started off with some cocktails and for an appetizer we thought we'd try the lobster bisque. It was unbelievably good. We decided to move downstairs for dinner because a loud group of drunk people decided to invade our quiet space. The transition downstairs could have been a little smoother, as they made us pay for our drinks/soup first and then move downstairs. Not sure why when it's all the same restaurant. We were seated at a very nice, quiet table and had very attentive waiters all night. I ordered the stuffed lobster and my husband the macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi. My lobster was huge and very good, although I found the risotto a little too rich. My husband said the mahi mahi was incredible. Perfect ending to a perfect holiday.

“Nice Dinner”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

The views were spectacular and so was the service. You are waited on hand and foot. The food was a little pricey but was totally fabulous. Great if you want a really nice dinner!

“Don't miss watching the sunset from here!”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

I came here for drinks in the upstairs bar and the view was sooooo beautiful. Awesome staff as well. I'll have to come back to try the food as I have heard great things!
