Wife and I ate here twice in early September. We both loved our dishes so much that we returned to have the same thing again. She got the ceviche and I had the tenderloin sandwich. Great quality and value. Highly recommended.

Had a great breakfast here during my 5 days in Playa Hermosa. Food was fresh and delicious and service was good. Price was high for Costa Rica standards, but not for what you are getting in general. Lovely beachfront setting.

If you are in Playa Hermosa, be sure to head down to the Hotel El Velero for happy hour and a spectacular sunset view. Grab a cold one or a fruity cocktail and sit at a table near the beach. On Wednesdays and Saturdays the restaurant has a BBQ menu, which we ordered and really enjoyed. Bring your camera, and spray down with a little bug spray beforehand.

The view is the primary attraction at El Velero. They have extremely friendly and helpful waiters. Luis has been there forever and is our favorite. The fish is always fresh and always good. The same chef has been there forever, which is their secret to always serving good food. Highly recommend!
