Description: The Point...A different kind of Sports Bar.Sure we have sports on all (7) of our T.V's all the time...and sure we have hot wings and (U.S.D.A. beef) burgers...and sure we have ice cold beer and micro brew on tap, but did you know that we have local Caribbean cuisine made by the best chef south of Nicaragua?  Check out our open air restaurant/bar located on Black Beach, steps to the Caribbean Sea. A local hangout where tourists and locals come together to have a good ol' time.  So on your next visit to Puerto Viejo, top on by and say hi ya'll (before Paradise, we lived in New Orleans).  We will keep a seat warm, a cold beer, your favorite game on, and a fun time waiting for you!

“We love The Point, Popeye the punkrock man & his super cool wife, Stephanie, the food, the ale, & the waves!!!!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

We are on our honeymoon in Costa Rica (from Los Angeles) & we met the owner, Popeye while bicycling around town. He was so nice & told us about The Point so the next day we went for dinner. Wow! Really impressed. We could hear the waves (but the sun had already set so we couldn't see the ocean but we knew it was right there & we plan to go back Sunday for the BBQ & live music to check out the daytime scene). The guacamole & plantains were the best!!! Literally out of this world yummy!!! The Dos Manos veggie burrito was sooo good but I had to get a box because I couldn't finish it all (I'm glad tho BC it was so yummy). The menu had veggie markings so we knew which was veggie/vegan (and I don't eat meat but my sweet new hubby does). So many people told us the had the best burgers & fries in town. My hubby got the burger & ate every bit. The hot habanero sauce was kickass!!!! This is the only bar in town with decent ale too :) we are sooo grateful to Popeye & his lovely wife, who gracious came out to visit with us & say hi ;) We will be back!!!!

“Organic eats, friendly ex-pats with tats”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Dropped in for a late lunch walking back to Banana Azul from town along Playa Negra. We sat outside and had the famous guac and homemade plaintain chips, the Caribbean cobb salad which was huge and filled with the freshest organic ingredients, and smoking hot buffalo wings. Everything was delicious, portions were huge, and prices were cheap. Vibe was very laid back, everyone hanging out on the patio with drinks, lots of friendly ex-pats with tats.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

I felt like I was in San Diego at a busy bar yet we were the only people there...the service was slow and people not friendly. The drinks were pricey compared to every other place...the burger was good. Overall I wouldn't go back with all the other places we had to choose from.

“YUMMY!!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

If you havent had the wings you are really missing out!!! So good they'll make you wanna "slap yo momma." No, but really thay are finger lickin good! Stayed right down the road from the Point for 2 weeks and probably visited every day if not twice a day. The vibe there was amazing and the wait/ kitchen staff were superb. You guys have a great thing going there and I look forward to seeing you again on our next trip in 2014. Happy St.Patty's, I know it will be great!! Eat some PIG for me :)

Thanks for your Review. Although we never claimed to be an Organic Restaurant and we are an American Sports Bar. But we do use organic Chicken in our wraps and we do use USDA beef for our burgers.Sorry you found the meal unsatisfactory, If you would of let us know we would have gladly tried our best to meet your needs.
Thank you.
