I had heard stories about the traditional "Rice and Beans" food from the Caribbean part of Costa Rica but it was better than I expected. The restaurant doesn't seem like a fancy one at first sight but IT IS! The plating was so nicely done and the food was great. We ordered rice and beans with fish and chicken and it was delicious and CHEAP. The service was great, the ladies there were very attentive and nice. The environment was very relaxed and fresh. My favorite restaurant in my whole trip in Costa Rica, if you are a backpacker this will be heaven.

Enjoyed lunch here at Surf Carribean Food today. We had jerk chicken casado (plate with vegetables, beans and mine had rice although I had thought casados were with tortillas?), patacones (deep fried salted plantains) and gallo pinto with beef (bean & rice with beef). Total cost was less than $20 USD.

The portions were huge, price was very good and food was delicious. Just a heads up though, it takes a while to get food. I think that's b/c they make it to order (?). Our lunch took about an hour to arrive but that's ok because we enjoyed sitting on their patio sipping batidos (fruit drinks). (and I think this is on par for the pace of life here in Cahuita)

And to top it off, accidentally left a water bottle behind and when we came back the waitress had set it aside and remembered us! Thanks so much for a great lunch and for the kindness!

This place is so relaxed right by Cahuita National Park. The people who work there are so nice, the food is amazing and this place is extremely affordable. The menu is mostly Caribbean with some other comfort food items. Perfect for vegetarian's and vegan's. The atmosphere is very fun, with outside seating and right in the main area of town.
