“Tasty food and good service”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Headed here to have a more casual meal our first night at La Mariposa. Menu variety was good and they had several specials going on the night we were there (like Prime Rib). Our server was much more attentive than average in CR and the food was great (although huge portions). On top of that they served CR Craft Brews on tap....a nice break from Imperial and Pilsen.

“Surprise”

We were walking to Aqua Azul which was surpringly closed. So we kept walking and ended up at Barba Roja. The mountain trout was very good as was the music and Piña colada Service was excellent. Nice surprise

“Drinks and Sunset!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

To me the main attraction here is the location. Fantastic view out to the west so you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful sunset over the ocean. Happy hour drinks were OK - nothing extraordinary there. We snacked on appetizers which were OK too. Service was excellent - very friendly, helpful and available. Prices were a little high, but absolutely worth it for the experience of sitting and enjoying the atmosphere and view.

“Great food, location and staff”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

If you are looking for a break from hotel food this is your place! We had the pleasure of eating there twice once we had grilled Tuna that was superb and we also had there famous cinnamon smoked pork ribs that are quite good (not KC good but very good). I certainly recommend Barba Roja - you won't be disappointed - great food, great location for sunsets and super friendly staff! Ask for William
