“Cool Drinks, Chill atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

This place is great to cool off from the Costa Rican heat. They have misters when you walk into the place and lots of different drinks to pick from. No drinks disappointed, and the appetizers that we had were really good. I will be going back for another margarita, Pina Colada or Dacari soon.

“yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The food is awesome, each dish has a tropical touch that makes it unique. I didn't like the daiquiris at all, but the place is pretty nice and comfortable! I loved their ceviche <3

“Great place for cocktails, munchies and laughs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We have been stopping at this bar for the past 2 years. This time we ordered Nachos and were pleasantly surprised. The manager Jeffrey, was also fantastic and gave us great tips and names for fishing and buying local foods.

“Great place for a change of pace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Some times you just want some good bar food and mix with friendly people. This is the place. You can not beat the long cocktail hour. The ceviche a house specialty is the best in the country.
