We loved this neighborhood restaurant. The food was excellent. We ate there 4 times during our week in Playa Hermosa and always enjoyed our meals. Prices were reasonable. The service was good but not great; seemed a little unorganized at times. The drinks were very...good. Our favorite was the Pink Mule. Best part of this place was it’s laid back atmosphere and view of the water/sunset.More

Went to Aqua sport for lunch but we were a bit to early for us to eat so sat down & ordered a drink first, no problem so far, waiter brought our drinks & food menu, informed us the seats we were in were for...food orders, explained we would finish the drinks & then order food BUT this was not good enough for this rude, obnoxious man & he continued to approach us every 5 minutes insisting we must order food, which we were going to do!!! Everytime he approached he was more & more obnoxious until eventually my husband lost his cool & in Spanish asked him what his problem was to which he just kept shouting 'you must order food' needless to say we paid for our drinks & left!!! Letting him know exactly what we thought of him......We were there previously for cocktails & thought it was lovely & absolutely no problem..........whoever this man is he could really do damage to this bar, he needs to be taught about customer service!!!!! 😡More

Nice location, and tasty food! Neat tree swing. I think the exchange rate may have been unfavorable, so I should have paid in colones. The receipt said gratuity was included, but our waiter informed us that was not the case.

We spent a week in Playa Hermosa and this quickly became our favorite place. The vibe is amazing, the view is incredible and the food is simple, carefully made and delicious. Our kids became addicted to the fried shrimp. My wife and I tried about...everything else on the menu. As far as drinks - Guava Sour with a Chile Mango chaser. Then just watch the sun go down.More

Aqua Sport Bar and Restaurant has incredible food for the entire family! We discovered that the chef is Peruvian so some of us tried his Peruvian Cerviche….it was amazing! This restaurant also has kid food (pizza and chicken) so the whole group was happy. The...staff is very friendly and helpful.More

We went here because it had great reviews and I wish we had tried a different restaurant instead. It was good but I was really hoping it would be great. I had fish tacos which had received rave reviews (but said they'd be snapper). Mine...were pretty meh (fish tasted almost frozen to me - the waiter said it was tilapia). My husband and one son had burgers, and my son felt really sick afterward. My other son had ceviche and fried seafood which he loved (but made me nervous).More

Cold beer, good food from tacos, Peruvian rice dish’s, fresh fish, wings, and many other bar snacks. Local crafts beers and traditional Costa Rican beers. Great place to watch sunset, comfortable chairs and friendly attentive staff.

returned after the covid break and glad to see that it is still the place for a brew in the sunset hour. Friendly staff and a fun atmosphere for families wanting to have their kids entertained too, what with the oversized chair and the swing;...kids have a good time here. the trees are nice and location great near the centre of the rounding surf.More

The food is OK. It is a great hang out spot. We dined here a few times on our visits to CR. The sunsets are amazing from this spot!

We went for a late dinner. The website said they close at 9:00 p.m. We arrived at 8:20 and were told the kitchen closes in 10 minutes. We asked if we could order and were reluctantly told we could. We each had a cocktail and...shared chicken quesadilla. It was just okay. The drinks are small and pricey compared to El Velero Hotel. (I recommend the giant margarita there.)The guacamole was very blah. I think it was just mashed avocado. Despite the beach charm and the great swing hanging from the tree, I would not return. I felt like we were a bother.More

We stayed in Playa Hermosa for vacation recently and were told by a local to visit Aquasport. It is an outdoor restaurant/bar right on the beach. We spent most of the afternoon hanging out here. Their drinks were excellent, everything freshly made and not too...sweet. There were ample places to sit, both covered and uncovered and they provided beach chairs by the water for their guests. The wait staff was attentive and very polite. The beach was pleasantly uncrowded and the restaurant provides an outdoor shower to get the sand off. I would highly recommend visiting this place if you wanna get some drinks and food and spend time at the beach.More

Sometimes the staff are friendly, and sometimes you feel like you are an inconvenience. Meals are good but a bit pricey, wings were 8000 colones, or about $12.00 USD, they were large but there was only 5 of them, to be fair wings seemed pricey...all over Costa Rica.More

The food is just not very good. A couple of the dishes has very little flavor, and I'm pretty sure the ceviche (which could use some patacones or chips or something) made me sick. Server Cristian was very nice, and the setting is lovely.

That is not a place I would eat for Christmas. I like it for a couple of after dinner drinks or an appetizer before diner.
