I had an amazing meal here! I highly recommend the tuna dish. They offer solid serving sizes and the service is so, so welcoming. The beachside vibes are lovely and I really enjoyed a post-dinner walk along the water. I’d definitely, absolutely return!

Fantastic pizza for lunch! We like our food spicy and they have an amazing spicy pizza. We also brought chocolate croissants home for breakfast and again - Wow! All natural food and you can taste the love baked into everything they make. We will be...going back to try everything on the menu! The service was exceptional as well.More

Great restaurant! We had dinner here for 3 nights whilst staying in the area. Steak was great as were the Pork Ribs. The staff were really helpful and attentive. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

Another gem near Puerto Viejo! They have a large menu with a lot of options. Friendly staff that help with your food decisions. I highly recommend the burgers, they are huge and very filling. Their fries are homemade and very flavorful. We sat on their...patio and watched the waves. A special treat was a large group of Congo Monkeys in the trees right above us. A few came all the way down to the ground ran across the yard and back up a larger tree! Pretty amazing to see all the wildlife!More

This spot was great for breakfast. The food was fresh and very tasty, we even picked up some of the hot sauce the restaurant had on sale to take home!

I am a career chef and rarely dine at the same spot twice. This was so consistently good that my husband and I returned three breakfasts in a row! The service was also spot on. Thanks for feeding us!

We went early as we have a toddler. Good food, good service. My only gripe. A jumped up restaurant manager with a sour face, who single handedly ruined our meal. When we arrived a group of people including a pregnant woman were openly smoking a...joint at the end of the open seating area. We could see and smell it yet all was good, I have no issues with this. They left, The owners turned up. I had a puff off my manly mango/strawberry vape on the next table to the weed folk and the manager is in my face explaining his rules to smoking and vaping. I didnt respond as I was slightly shocked. The next thing, he was back in my face explaining how he didnt want to be the parent explaining things for the second time, even though this time I was just holding my vape. I saw at least 2 other people vaping without care from the management. I understand rules are rules and the law is the law but I don't have time for mean spirited hypocritical half wits, trying to impress the boss . I kept my cool, but as locals, we won't be back!More

I love a good piece of meat. So I took 3 friends and we ordered meat...the ribs were the best I ever had as were the roasted vegetables. Add to that the exceptional service by Melissa and you have a great experience. But that's not...all. Mono monkeys entertained us for the whole time we were there as did the beautiful view of the Caribbean sea.More

The restaurant was recommended. We spent New Year Eve here on holiday with the family. The steak was excellent. The cocktails were original and delicious. The wine selection was good. I would love to go back

Really decent food and drink. Their speciality is of course Argentinian so they do lots of meat. They are one of the pricier options in the area, but if you are going for a special occasion it's not outrageous by any means. They had a...great wine selection, and the service was friendly and food was plentiful. The pork that I had was decent but was a bit overcooked, going a bit dry, which for the price i expected a bit better.More

Love breakfast here! Consistently good on two seperate trips. Our waitress is so nice and speaks perfect English (which is great while I still learn espanol). The iced coffee is great first thing in the morning. The atmosphere is amazing as well, as they’re pet...friendly and there’s always monkeys in the trees above!

The pizza was good. Had the rib steak it was horrible tough when I told the staff they thought it was funny. For the price they charge for a rib steak 26000 colones they could source a quality cut. We asked for the check and...they ignored us for 30 minutes.More
