They make good Gallo Pinto (traditional Costa Rican breakfast of mixed rice and beans with other seasonings.) Go early because by 10 am the pinto may be gone.

Not the best for lunch and dinner food in my opinion and even a little pricey for a local joint, but if you find yourself dining here in the later hours try the arroz con camarones (fried rice with shrimp) or the ceviche. Avoid the hamburger/chicken sandwich.

We ate here yesterday after a long walk on the beach. My husband and I shared a Palmito salad which was good. I ordered Spaghetti Napolitana (with tomato sauce) and it was like eating sea water. It was beyond salty. My husband ordered a chicken sandwich which basically consisted of a bun, a few pieces of pulled chicken, lettuce, tomato, and tons of mayo! This is possibly the worst restaurant I have ever eaten at!

Good food and generous portions. Comfortable seating and attentive service. We visited Samara for five days and I usually eat fish for lunch and dinner and this fish was my favorite in Samara.

The food was YUMMY! It also was one of the least expensive restaurants we found. The only downside is that it is not directly on the beach. Great place to eat, regardless, and very relaxed.
