The atmosphere and view at this restaurant can’t be beat! The service and food were very good, too. Maybe a little pricier than most places in Playa Hermosa, but worth the extra.

We were in Playa Hermosa for 8 nights and ate in Roberto’s 3 times This is because the welcome was friendly and food was really good, with a lovely atmosphere together with wonderful views at sunset

Had an amazing lunch of ceviche and fried grouper. The ceviche was delicious with really great plantain chips. The group was moist and seasoned perfect. Luis our server was an absolute professional that was very attentive and kind. Great atmosphere and reasonably priced. Plan to...come back for dinner during our stay. Doesn’t get any better!!!More

We have eaten at Robertos four times: twice for breakfast and twice for dinner and each time the food was delicious and quite fantastic. The pork ribs were some of the best I have ever had: so tender and meaty and tasty. Both breakfast and...dinner menus offer a nice variety of Costa Rican style and American style food. I had two different Costa Rican style breakfasts and both were great. You can’t go wrong, and the views of the beach and the ocean are great. The wait staff is fantastic: so attentive and they will speak Spanish with you if you prefer but their English is also excellent. Enjoy this gem of a restaurant.More

This restaurant is in a small hotel on the beach. The service is very attentive, but not oppressively so, and the food is excellent. A very low key place to sit, chat and enjoy great food.

We have been to almost all of the beaches in Costa Rica. There is a great reason why Playa Hermosa has that name, because it, along with Tambor, are the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The food was okay, but the service was great....We had breakfast, so that might have something to do with it. I'm a consultant to Chefs all over the world, so I am a harsh judge. We are going back to try lunch or dinner next week, so I will reserve my judgment on their food until then. In any case though, I highly recommend this place.More

Awesome food, in an amazing relaxing tantalizing atmosphere lapped by ocean waves and served by the most friendly staff. It was like I was a regular for the last 10 years and it was my first time!! I had "shrimp chef" with large succulent shrimp...in a complimentary sauce and flavors with vegetables lightly steamed and in a light flavorful sauce. I spent several hours as the sun set on the ocean gently crashing at my beachside table. The environment, service was awesome and the meal over the top.More

Hello PURA VIDA Thank you very much for your nice opinion.

I don't understand why this place gets such great reviews, other than the location there is nothing special about this place. We waited 45 minutes to get our dinner. The food was boring and flavorless. The service was even more lacking, we were never asked...how our food was or if we needed additional beverages. Head over to playa del coco for a fabulous dining experience at mar azul. Betty can learn a thing or two from them. Pure vida.More

We stayed at an all-inclusive resort with a nice breakfast, but still came down here several times. The food was THAT good. Seriously, I’d walk down the steep hill, down the beach in the mornings just to get their spectacular juice. Great menu, great service,...great presentation. Thank you!More

This is a great place to visit, the food is really well prepared, the staff are very friendly and attentive. The premises are spotless (we usually check the washrooms first, if they are clean, then we give the place a try, they were spotless). All...around an excellent place to go for a meal.More
