“Great local food”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Prices are reasonable. Right on the beach . Watch the surfers do their thing as well as teach students to surf. That's a hoot! Breakfast is really good as well.

“Great food in an interesting atmosphere”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Sheriff Rustic is a nice little beach restaurant located in Samara Beach. It is open every day from 7AM to 5PM. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is very nice and the service is great. They have great fresh fish at very reasonable prices. While not fancy, there is something about the atmosphere which is very relaxing and friendly. Of course, the view of the beach is great. This is one of my favorite restaurants. I recommend it to you and plan to return soon.

“Simple soda with fresh good food”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

We lunched at Sherrif several times, liking its beach location and fair prices as well as the tasty food. Fried rice with camarones (shrimps), French fries, pineapple smoothies were good but the Vegetarian Casado was the best I had in our 2 weeks in Costa Rica.

“Great breakfast for a great price.”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Started hunting for breakfast a little late, so I wasn't in the mood to look forever for a place, but I also wasn't interested in paying a ton of cash for the first place we could find on the beach. We saw Sheriff Rustic and took a chance. It was stellar!

I had the pinto gallo with eggs and tomato. Good sized portion that was delicious. The orange juice was a huge glass. The coffee was nice and strong. Service was remarkably good for Samara. And the four of us got out of there for less than $30.

I'm going back again to this place.
