Went for dinner here as the 3 places I sent a message to asking for an English menu, this one responded quite quickly. Glad we went here, some food was cooking on the front grill when we arrived, nice roll of tenderloin which tasted better...then outback. Different specials each night and a good variety on the menu. Owner, Marco, also runs several different tours and will happily answer any questions you may have about places to go. When we went there was an American DJ and his wife who also provided some useful information. If you are in the area stop by, you won't be disappointed.More

We went for dinne with our family of 12 and we had a really great time. There was live music from this great singer who made all the difference. His voice was great ! The service was a bit long because it was really busy...as people from the streets also stop for a cocktail and for the music but besides that, Marco's place is a must. The burgers are great !!!More

Went in for happy hour. Stayed for dinner. After an hour of no food, we asked about the food. They apologized and said there was no wifi between the waiter and kitchen, so the food was never ordered. They offered us two drinks for free...if we waited for our food. Forty-five minutes later, the food arrived. Neither order was correct. My girlfriend was very hungry and said she'd just eat it. I tried to eat mine. Both were Mahi Mahi. And both were dry, so dry they made canned tuna fish seem like a moist fish. A knife was needed to cut it. When I spoke with the owner about it, he said fine, don't pay for yours. He was too busy spending time with his family and didn't want to be bothered. I talked with some of the locals who said that they go in for the drinks but never stay for the food. In the end, we spent three plus hours to eat at separate places.More

Loved our bebidas naturales, pizza and caribbean seafood meals here! Fresh and delicious. The owner, Marco, and his staff are great - friendly, and service-oriented. We went often - for just a drink (papaya and lemon with mint were our favorites) and meals when we...didn't feel like cooking at our place.More

My Cahuita guesthouse was a few km out of town so I ordered delivery 3 times from Cangrejo Loco. Super efficient Whatsapp ordering - in English or Spanish, and each time my dinner (grilled fish, pizza, ceviche, salad) was really tasty. The frozen cocktails also...travelled well 😊More

Fun atmosphere with live music and lively servers. They truly want everyone to have a great time. Guitarist was entertaining and seemed to enjoy himself which was infectious. The food was pretty basic but very affordable. We enjoyed ourselves because of the atmosphere.

We ate here twice, drank cocktails and ate some traditional Costa Rican food. Both were very good and reasonably priced. They do lots of deals, like 2 for 1 on drinks, and set meal deals too. They have lots of live music events as well.
