Delicious mahi mahi and grilled vegetables, all served in a gorgeous setting....particularly lovely at sunset and at night. BIG piece of fish - great value. Would definitely return.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, we did not have to wait very long for a food at all...although we wouldn't have minded in the this beautiful setting!

A friend and I were exploring the Mal pais beach area and fell upon this establishment. The owner was extremely welcoming and friendly. The pricing is fair and portion of food pretty large. You may have to wait a bit for your food, but it's worth it and you can have a freshly made drink and look out at the ocean while you wait. Definately glad we found this place accidently. It was the perfect afternoon lunch spot.

This is an awesome little place for breakfast. They do the best Gallo Pinto and eggs I think I've had in Costa Rica. The guacamole is great, the ceviche, amazing, and the atmosphere is what you come to Costa Rica for. They do a great Margareta as well, not too sweet, highly recommended.

One word of warning. Do not be in a hurry. You will assume that a family of sloths are cooking, it is slow... but the food is great and the atmosphere is even better, a huge sprawling lawn on the beach under the trees with the tide pools just beyond. Just sit in, relax, get out of the city mind set, and enjoy a slow paced vibey meal.
