Unfortunately we we did not eat here until our last day of the trip...
Paullette was the best server we had during our stay in the Costa Rica!
The sunset view was spectacular!
Make sure if your in the area to check out Runaway's at least for a drink and ask for Paullete ....
cheers!

Recently took a trip to Quepos area for some fishing. After our first day out fishing we arrived back at the marina tired and hungry we decided to eat at Runaways.

The place was packed. I was concerned it would be a long wait but immediately our sever Paulette was taking drink orders within minutes of us sitting down.

As busy as it was, she made us feel like we were the only ones there...I appreciate great service with a smile...

You can eat at the best restraunts in the world and if your server is horrible, it dosen't matter how good the food is and conversely you can eat at an average place with good food, reasonable prices and have an amazing server and it becomes 5 star....

BTW, we ate or had drinks there every day and all but once we had Paulette and the difference was quite noticeable!!!!!

I have been to this sports bar many times, mostly because of the stunning view from the third level of the marina. The food and drinks are average and that is OK. I have never had good service. They need to try to get wait staff who speak better English; after all, Americanos are a major customer base. I have been ignored so many times it has become annoying and checking out is extremely slow. A good bar could easily become a great bar and grill.
