A fun spot for drinks and gorgeous views of the beach. The food is typical bar food, nothing special, but good. We came here several times.

Let me tell you if you're looking for food with FLAVOR this is the spot. I had a porkchop with veggies salad. This porkchop was seasoned to perfection, left me wanting to order another one. My friend had grilled chicken rice and veggies again, seasoned...so good. This was our favorite spot to eat at!!More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the camping area with our roof tent and we really loved it. Such a great vibe and reasonably priced for access to toilets and cold showers too. Wifi also included. The staff were always really lovely. We also...had some drinks here which were absolutely brilliant. Certainly recommend.More

A great option for food and drinks on the beach of Playa Negra. We visited this place twice while we were in the area during our trip to Costa Rica. We had drinks in the 1st visit and food on the 2nd one (both were...good). The location is great as the bar is right on the beach.More

Reggae Bar was right down the road from where we stayed and the food was good, though it is loud. We ate here three times, trying the fish with Caribbean sauce, fried calamari, garlic fish, and chicken and port at the Friday night barbeque. The...barbeque came with rice and beans and salad and macaroni salad. We’re not sure what was in the macaroni salad. It seemed to have some kind of seafood like fake crab or something? Anyway it was good. The pork was a little hard to navigate having bones but it was good.More

Great location. Food was awful! I told them the rice was hard and the chicken over cooked. The reply i got was we do things differently. My conclusion is lazy. You don't mess up rice! Waitresses was lovely. Over worked however.

Location is awesome. Right on the beach. Stopped for an appetizer and drink after the beach. Not too much apps offered. We had bruschetta and it was good. Can't comment on the entrees. Great location though.

Ordered the squid with garlic. It was the single worst meal I had in Costa Rica. Was scared to drink anything that was not pre bottled. Weed was openly smoked with customers children dining nearby. Crazy drunk locals seemed on the edge of losing control....Service was a zero. I believe this is a front for other business sales.More

Make sure to try the fresh mango-cocktails. You will not be disappointed. Meanwhile, enjoy the reggae-music… 🇯🇲 🥭 🍹 🏝 🌊 and the view on the Caribbean Sea.

We stopped here one afternoon for a couple of drinks after checking out Playa Negra. The mojitos were delicious and the place had a fun vibe. Loved sitting on the stools looking out at the beach.

Friday night reggae band. Decent food , good crowd. Don’t know what nights they have music other than Friday . Bartender and waiters were masked. Hard to beat live music and beers for under $2 USD

Cool location by the beach. Dont expect too much from the food but drinks are good, especially the fresh juices. Service takes some time but its a beach reggae bar so take your time and enjoy the atmosphere!

We came here for dinner because it was within walking distance of our bungalow. There was communication problems with the server, he didn't speak much English. I think he got annoyed with us because of this and decided we weren't worth his time and disappeared...the rest of our meal. The food was good but wouldn't return after the service we received.More
