“We Love this Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

As a regular visitor to Cahuita, we eat at this restaurant quite often during out month long stay. The food and service is fantastic. The atmosphere is intimate in comparison to some other locations where the music is too loud. The staff are friendly, courteous and very helpful with teaching us our Spanish! The prices are definitely reasonable for the amount food served. My husband loves to eat and in most places he leaves, hes unsatisfied...... this never seems to be the case when eating here. Definitely worth a visit!

“Nothing Bad to say!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Had a great meal here and enjoyed the atmosphere and location, set along the "main"street of Cahuita. Their guacamole and large patacones were so good so good we ordered some" to go" for our beach picnic the following day. We also enjoyed delicious tropical cocktails and a pork rice dish and chicken fajitas.Great food,good value,good service.

“Reasonably Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

There are a number of places to eat along that strip. This one is a little tucked in behind which gives it a nice feel. The food is reasonably good. The service is very good. I would like to have seen more spices in the jerk chicken but they may be catering to tourist tastes. This place is generally my first stop after the long bus ride from San Jose. The casados and fajitas are very good.and both are always a reasonably priced meal in Costa Rica.

“Reasonably priced good food!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Great service, friendly people, good food, reasonable prices, nice atmosphere. My husband had a casado and thought it was excellent. My vegetarian nachos were more than adequate and the portion was huge. We didn't eat anywhere else in Cahuita and so can't compare this place to others but we were happy eating lunch there.
