The menus are in English and la quenta (bill) was easy to interpret. Portions were good and service was friendly. It's also easy to find in Quepos.

Open air restaurants work well when the sewage smell isn't blowing around in the air. Another overpriced under seasoned meal!

The tuna steak was very tasty. It was a nice treat as I love fish and it was very fresh. The decor was nice to look at. There are free postcards of the place. It is an open air restaurant close to the beach in Quepos, although Manuel Antonio would be where one would go into the ocean. The internet worked there also.

They don't have a view like most restaurants in Quepos and Manuel Antonio, but they really put attention to the food in a relaxed ambient, with good service.
We had some shrimps, and I must say they are one of the biggest ones I had in some time.

Over priced. Small portions. Very disappointed!! 6 people and asked for 2 separate checks. We ordered one order of guacamole and pico degalo for our table to share. Didn't realize til later that evening when we were all talking about our lunch, that our server had charged us both for the one appetizer. This guacamole, chips, and pico degalo cost us each $20.00 and trust me when I tell you that all they gave us was a very small bowl of each. Lunch for 4 cost us $88.00 and we only had 2 beers and 4 sandwiches. The couple with us had 2 dirty bananas, a grilled cheese sandwich and fish tacos.Their bill was $55.00 Worst meal we ate while in Costa Rica
