While visiting Pedasi with another couple exploring options for a retirement destination we stayed at Casa de Campo (highly recommend) and walked to Smiley's for dinner the first night. The fresh fish was excellent and the mashed potatoes divine. It was nice to be able to learn about Pedasi in English with the owner. You must have the flan prepared by Smiley, who is actually the wife partner at Smiley's. Fantastico! The next day we had lunch with new realtor friends and enjoyed the pork sandwiches and excellent fries. We were also entertained with an impromptu jam session with local guitarists and the owner at keyboard and singing. A very relaxing and fun afternoon.

Can't beat the great service, had all our fish we caught cooked up there for our group, and was cooked perfect, the beer was always ice cold and best price, the live music was a plus.. Keep up the great service !!!

Good food, terrific hosts, and great music. Also, in an area where finding English-speaking people is difficult, it was nice to have someone from Pedasi to talk to (for non-Spanish speakers). I especially enjoyed when the owner cooked our fresh fish that we caught the day before. He did an amazing job with it, and we stuffed ourselves full. I believe it was $10 for the fish and two sides. The food prices were reasonable, and I loved the fresh passion fruit juice! AND the pineapple crisp! If I find my way back to Pedasi again, I will definitely return to Smileys.

We went fishing while in Pedasi and stopped by Smiley's for lunch that day and asked if he would cook up our catch of tuna and Wahoo. He said he would so we took it back the next night and he surprised us with one of the best cooked meals I've had in a long time. Both the Wahoo and tuna were cooked to perfection. Could not have asked for anything better. The service is well handled with a smile and friendly conversation. I personally think that it is a must when in Pedasi.

great food, friendly faces, live music....a very welcoming crowd. I don't usually have desert but try one of the fresh cakes (baked fresh daily) well worth all of the calories!
