“More than rondón”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

This place has been recommended to us and we very much appreciated the unusual food for us, but it was simply delicious. Taste the meals with agua de sapo. Perfect service in a Caribbean ambiance. A place to visit.

“I think I just left a review, but for Whappin...pretty sure they are the same.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Eat here. It's good. Reasonable price. Great Patty. Good jerk sauce. Great juices as well. It's also in a nice neighborhood outside of San Jose...is that 100 characters?

“Patty Hay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Great food at a reasonable price in a cool neighborhood outside of San Jose. They actually had a good jerk sauce, which was hard to find, even on the Caribbean Coast. Highly recommend.

“Whappin: A great introduction to Costa Rican cuisine.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

We ordered ron don (anything the cook can run down), which was a kind of seafood stew, and it was excellent. My wife and I each ordered a medium size bowl and it was almost more than we could finish. This probably was my favorite meal in Costa Rica!
