Reviewed December 22, 2013

A slice of heaven up on a Uvita hill... the owner is insanely nice, and the wings are amazing.

Get there, grab a seat, say hello to the cat and settle in.. this place is fantastic.

“Great burger!”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to eat in Dominical. The food for all four of us was great without a complaint. Two little issues are; the drive up was a little scary on a rainy night and the place has no public wifi.

“Great view bar on 4X4 road above the Pacific surf”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

This is a great casual bar about 10 minutes up the Esceleras road from the pacific highway (4X4 required) with a patio looking out over the pacific, open 4 pm on. Nice selection of bottled beer and tequilas. Cant recommend the Margaritas. Wowed by the chicken wings/legs, lots of meat and excellent sauces. Hamburgers with onion fries also good. Great service, ambience. One of the many quirky characterful places to visit on the great Costa Ballena.

“Wings, salads and burgers”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

How can you go wrong with 21 flavors of homemade sauce for your wings?! They range from mild, sweet, to firebreathing hot. My favorite was the succulent honey barbeque. The burgers are enormous half-pounders, great for sharing. The Caesar dressing is the real thing. The owner, Storm, has a wonderful sense of humor and is also a dyed-in-the-wool Steelers fan. During the off season, Monday nights mean Gringo Bingo, complete with prizes.

“Great wings and nice view”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Toucans in the trees, lots of choices for wing sauce. All made fresh to order. They have burgers and other bar type food on the menu. All of it looked good coming out of the kitchen, but we stuck with the wings. Liked it so much we went back a few days later. The restaurant is up hill on a dirt road. It is better to have a 4X4, but you can get there by car.
