We are at the end of our holiday and this is by far the best Costa Rican dish we had. Also the host was super friendly. Highly recommend when you visit Cahuita.

I came here with my family following Trip Advisor’s reviews, and it was everything I read and even more. The food is amazing, the music they play, and the attention. Everything was as we expected to be, and even beyond those expectations. If you come...to Cahuita, you definitely have to come here and enjoy this lovely place.More

It's not the busiest place in Cahuita for nothing. The restaurant is quiet and well lit and sits on the edge of a little town park. Not many places take covid seriously in this part of the world. The owners really do. Hand washing a...must before being seated, all staff fully masked at all times and tables nicely distanced apart. Not only that we were offered bug spray. Not needed but a nice touch. Back to the owners. What lovely people. Kind, attentive and leading from the front. They can't do enough for you. Food was fab. My wife said it was the best octopus she has ever eaten and we are used to a lot of fine dining in southern Spain, so that really is a statement. Prices are reasonable and the service is slick. We will comeback in a heartbeat. Lovely to see a restaurant in Cahuita setting such high standards. Lets hope others try and up their game a little. Well done Rincon Del Amor👏🏽👏🏽More

The food is very nice but the most fantastic thing about this place are the owners. We were there towards the end of August and, after an excellent meal, we were caught by heavy rain which did not allow us to go back to our...lodge without getting soaking wet. Xavier, the owner, offered us a liqueur while we were waiting for the rain to pass. Finally, Xavier and his wife decided to drive us all the way to the lodge for us not to get wet. Lovely people, lovely restaurant!More
