We had two different types of rice with beans for dinner which came with a very delicious coco sauce which was our highlight. Also the service was very good, the waitress was very friendly and helpful.

BEST RESTAURANT IN CAHUITA. By far. My friend and I tried almost every restaurant in town, and this place was superior on all counts. GENEROUS portions, REASONABLE prices, and KIND staff made for the perfect experience, so perfect we went back! We loved the pork...in coconut sauce and chicken in coconut sauce with speckled rice. The cocktails are fantastic as well. We also loved the location because it was so quiet and away from the main road. You will not regret dining here! You will return!!!More

On the main road just before Cahuita, which means you may pass this little gem without noticing. The food and service here was really top notch. A varied cuisine was available which kept my two sons happy, whilst the traditional cuisine my wife and I...had was exceptional. Great food, atmosphere and value. I would highly recommend this!More

Came here late in the evening with my family and was welcomed warmly with fantastic service and a truly delicious meal! Everything was fresh and flavorful -- we especially enjoyed the light, creamy sopa de mariscos, the smoky coconut chicken, and the traditional rondon (a...hearty seafood-vegetable stew). Our waitress was highly attentive, patient with our questions, and very good-humored about our less-than-perfect Spanish! Mojitos were delicious, presentation was nice, and vibe was laid-back and festive. Overall, an underrated gem in Cahuita, and a memorable meal on the beautiful Caribbean Coast! Love this place!More

We drove by this restaurant without giving it much notice as it is not near most of the other touristy places and it is hidden by some trees. Once you are inside, it is very tropical looking and a lovely clean restaurant. The food was...amazing. We started with a shared plate of mussels, oysters and crab which my husband loved. It was in copious amounts of garlic butter. I found it extremely tasty. We each had the Caribbean specialty, with rice and beans, and Caribbean sauce. I had chicken and husband had steak. Mine was much more tasty, although neither were bad. Reggae music playing in the background added to the experience.More

We spent six weeks in Costa Rica traveling around the country eating at too many restaurants to name. Heck, we even ate at Hotel La Mariposa in Quepos (one of the 1000 places to see before you die) and quite honestly El Ranchon was the...place that kept us coming back. Over the course of 3.5 weeks in the Caribbean we probably ate here a good 10 times. The prices are insanely affordable, the food is to die for, and the vibe is perfectly relaxing. I could not more highly recommend.More
