“OK.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Food was good, nothing outstanding. Noisy and hot. Close to highway. We are an older couple so we like a quieter atmosphere away from traffic noises. Fans but no air conditioning which is fine if you happen to be able to sit near one.

a while,playing cards,having a few coffees or drinks and spend time on the free wi-fi.
The staff was friendly.

“Good Local Cuisine, WiFi and big screen sports”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Just south of Uvita on right hand side of road. Cuisine is standard Tico (local) costa rica cuisine and the beer is cheap. Hangout for ex-pats. They've got a free, high-quality WiFi connection and, if you like soccer, big screen TVs.

The place was a blast during the World Cup- depending on what country was playing, the place was filled with Dutch, Germans, Brits all cheering their teams on.
