“Nice service and great food”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Dinner at Drake's kitchen was the best we had in Cista Rica. Fresh red snapper was very well made. I must agree with other travellers that Teressa was really friendly and served us perfectly. Highly recommended.

“Delicious food but pricey and tiny servings”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We ordered grilled fish with vegetables. The fish was very tasty but tiny compared to other places and over priced in my opinion. The wine was excellent however and the place was packed, to my surprise given the slow service and tiny meals!

Very good pizza. Extensive menu. Quick service. Right in the center of downtown Drake. Often has live music. Nice family-owed establishment.

“Outstanding, beyond expectations”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

We had the Garlic Shrimp and Pan fried fish filet, both were done to perfection and served with local grilled vegetables. They prepared a fish caught by another tourist in sushi as well as filets for them and it was also fabulous. It's not in the "town", but down the road and has a wonderful beach view and well worth the short walk. Gringo Curt's doesn't come close

“Best restaurant in Drake Bay”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

super delicious food, super service, Teresa is a sweetheart making every special wish possible and Juan Carlos cooks fantastic! Location with great relaxing view over the river opening towards the ocean. Candles at night. I live in Drake Bay and go there frequently with all my guests and friends.
