“Fantastic!!!!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

This is a must do!!!! The owners are working right along with the employees. The steak was amazing. Cooked perfectly (rare). With yummy chimmichuri sauce on top. It did take a long time... But they were very nice and comforting. Everything was very fresh. Randall was awesome. He was one of our servers. Really nice. The husband/owner was making us some DELICIOUS drinks. I could see him making them and he seemed to put a lot of love and hard work into them. Our river guide actually recommended this place, thankfully. He even told them we were coming and we all ended up with a free drink. Yumm. We actually loved it so much we tried to go back the very next night. Unfortunately they were closed (Thursday)

“Fresh and tasty food”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is held by a French who really knows how to cook.
You'll find fresh fish, tender beef, organic vegetables and homemade fries.... The fruit juice we had really tasted like fruit (not always the case everywhere...) and the beef served with shrimps (yes the combo works!) in a garlic sauce just amazing! Very nice combination of local food and French know-how.

“easy to miss”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

This is upstairs on the main road along from Lazy Mons, above a clothes shop. Look out for the wooden branch balcony 'railing'.

The food was really tasty (I had shrimps in Carribean sauce), the staff attentive, and it was nice to sit and people watch from the balcony.

“Best food we had in 5 week trip”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Really enjoyed this place and the food is excellent ( curry and pasta dishes are fantastic). But truly what makes this place great is the friendly, efficient staff. We waited quite some time for our food one night as it was busy and they were short a server, but we didnt mind as we knew the food was worth the wait and the staff remained upbeat and efficient despite being run off their feet. I would recommend trying this place when in the area.

“My best meal in Puerto Viejo”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

The quality of this restaurant's food can't be beat. It's an elevated take on the local cuisine. My boyfriend and I work in restaurants in NYC, so we can be tough critics - but the food here blew us away. I had steak with a Chimichurri sauce, he had the octopus, other friends had the whole fish and everybody loved everything. Seriously, eat here!!
