Average bar food. We tried to order pizza but was told it was unavailable. Place is popular with local and was pretty packed on a week night. The tuna Poke was pretty bland and probably the most forgettable meal I have had in my 4...weeks in Costa Rica. I heard this place recently sold, so I hope the new owners punch up the menu. Plenty of free parking was nice as was the fun decor and house music.More

We stop by at least two times while visiting. Husband loves the wings and I lover the cheese sticks. A nice variety of beers and wines. Wonderful entertainment and a great place to watch soccer and baseball!

We stopped for an afternoon drink. The Pina Coladas were delicious. We enjoyed some tasty nachos and would return if in the area again. The service was great. I recommend for anyone in the area, and they apparently have great night time entertainment.

This is a great place to watch the game, or really any game! They show almost all sports. The bbq ribs and wings are top eats.

Watched the US top Mexico here. Wings and pizza are excellent. Really fun atmosphere. If this place was on the beach it would be off the hook.

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon Perlas while staying in Potrero for 1 month. We were looking for a good spot to watch US Sports and this is it! SO many TV's and great for sports. Our server Andres was the BEST - ask for...him! He is so friendly and accommodating and we had a great time getting to know him every time we went. Perlas' menu was a bit more expensive than we were used to spending in the area, but Wednesday is Wing Night and they were some of the best chicken wings we've ever had! Their bartender also makes a mean "Guaro Sour" local drink.More

Yes, Mel and Ray who own a local B&B in Playa Potrero. Wonderful folks who wanted to keep La Perla's alive and have updated in significantly.
