“Fabulous experience”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We have been going to Mar Y Sol since it opened 8 years ago by the Taulere family. The son is either the 7 or 8th generation of chefs on the father's side. Please try the gespacho soup. It is the perfect way to start your dinner. The tuna is wonderful as well as all of the sea food. We travel a lot and many of my most memorable evenings have been at Mar Y Sol. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. Jim and Luann

“Amazing sunsets, food and service”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Unbelievably good. Go early and catch the sunset in the upper level bar... then go to the lower level for dinner. The food is out of this world and service is fabulous.

Vacationed in Playa Flamingo with a total group of eight....Service was excellent and the food was absolutely awesome. Great seafood dishes with generous serving sizes, ice cold Imperial....fantastic location with great ocean view...would definately recommend going just before sunset.

“Fantastic Cuisine!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

I have been coming here for 8 years and the experience and food is always memorable. You will not be disappointed. Amazing food and atmosphere. The view of Flamingo Beach and the Pacific Ocean would almost be worth the money even if the food was average.

“Refreshing Find. Amazing Food with a Sunset Patio-unbeatable!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Just when our group of 6 couples was complaining that we could not find any quality food while traveling in Costa Rica, we came across Mar y Sol near Flamingo. The food and deck seating was AMAZING at Sunset. It was impressive enough, that 2 days later we found that the same owner had recently opened Pangas closer to where we were staying. There were 6 of us. Every dinner, salad, appetizer, and desert was 5 star quality. The actual setting was INCREDIBLE on the bar/deck area. Service was excellent as they attended to our every need and checked often. Each course was top quality and prepared perfectly. We will be back!
