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 came here twice because this was the only place we could watch the NCAA tourney (in English). Kids liked the burgers and fries. I tried the chicken skewers that were on special one night ($2/skewer) with some rice and beans and they were excellent. Micro brews were very tasty but a bit expensive (about $5/draft). The Point sits right on Playa Negra with outdoor or indoor seating.

We were so glad to see they served american beef and had craft beers on tap. We've been in Costa Rica for several months, and never could adjust to the un-aged beef and watery beers.

We had, of course, the burgers. Really nice. The onion rings were excellent, and the prices better than a burger in San José. The setting was right on the beach. The road was a little loud, but not enough to detract from the good food and view.

The owner, a Canadian, was very nice and helpful. Definitely would recommend this place.

This is one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. The french fries were awesome too. I loved spending the meal on Playa Negra. It is a great sports bar with many games on the televisions. The service was excellent. Don't forget to have the guacamole with plantain chips. Wonderful!

Great view and nice breeze while you have beer, cocktails and food. The kitchen staff is well trained and the food is delicious and large proportions. The owners were friendly. Locals stop by here too. It is a ten minute bike ride for us from town or a nice beach walk with sunscreen during the day. If you time it right you could cheaply take the bus. A cab is not much this far. We were pleasantly surprised our first visit and have returned.

Kind of and american x-pat location but we enjoyed it. I don't think the micro brew they have was brewed there but it was very good. I couldn't find the blond or red brew anywhere else in town. Food was actually pretty good for a bar. We ate there a few time. Great chips and dip!
