My daughter and I had both dinner and drinks here on two separate occasions. The fresh fruit drinks (alcoholic and non) were refreshing and the food was lovely. Homemade nachos and chicken fingers and fried. If you sit upstairs there is a lovely view of both the ocean and the side streets of Puerto Viejo. The beach in front of the restaurant is lovely and brown and if you walk just five minutes north you'll find yourself walking on incredible black volcanic sand!!! We brought some home! Friendly, laid back. The essence of Pura Vida!

The food was good, but the cocktails are the star. We visited twice and were very happy both times. The mojitos were the best I have ever had. The staff (owners?) are super sweet too.

Very friendly restaurant and bar staff, amazing mojitos, and to top it all fresh seafood. I ordered the Red Snapper with coconut milk and ginger, my boyfriend the Mahi Mahi with passionfruit. The fish was cooked beautifully and both dishes came with fresh side salads and vegetables.

The upstairs balcony is a must. We will definitely be coming back here again!!

It was our first time in Puerto Viejo so we weren't sure where to go for dinner. We noticed this place because it was well lit, brightly decorated and located on the main road near the beach. The upstairs dining area is gorgeous! Colorful decorations, ambient setting and a nice breeze on a hot night. Our drinks were delicious and beautifully garnished. The food was also excellent ... I had the caribbean chicken with rice, beans, salad and sweet fried bananas. The bartender and owner are friendly people and take good care of their guests. Will definitely come back!

Definitely go upstairs and eat in the terraza upstairs, nice view and a good breeze up there.

Delicious Caribbean food and drinks made with love. Bartender showed his experience with flavorful and beautifully-garnished cocktails (excellent mojito!) and the Caribbean chicken and seafood soup were authentic and perfectly put together. Pity we found this on our last night, would definitely have been back more.

Highly recommended!!!
