“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

The reviews are right on. This place is great. Delicious Acai smoothies. The breakfast bowls are all made from scratch with fresh ingredients and they're amazing! The hot sauce is some of the best I've ever had. So addictive! It's got a casual, funky surfer vibe. Sometimes you have to wait a while for the food to come out, but it's all handmade and delicious. The staff is very friendly.

“Great lunch place”

It's just a funky little restaurant along road 4466 to Isabela at km 5.9. We had great beans and rice. Very casual and local.

“Laid back and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

El Carey was a great place to stop for lunch while exploring Playa Jobos. The food was delicious and abundant - my rice bowl ended up being two meals for me. Hibiscus iced tea really hit the spot, too. We were even given a couple of starfruit to take home!
