The Garden Bar is an exceptional restaurant and bar in Playa Del Coco. The food, atmosphere, and service is OUTSTANDING! Its a bit of paradise in paradise. It is tucked away near the hospital in Playa Del Coco, just a block or two off main street or the shopping district. I have visited The Garden Bar many times and never been disappointed. I am always immediately greeted, seated and served! The specialty drinks unique and AMAZING! So is the food! You can't visit Costa Rica or go to Playa Del Coco without stopping here!

First off, the staff is so friendly and informative. The cocktails are really well thought out and refreshing. The outdoor seating has almost doubled since our last time here in 2019.

The sushi menu is small but well done and reasonably priced. The regular menu has something for everyone.

Garden Bar is just off the beaten path and that is great. You feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle of town but you are about 90 seconds away. I will come here every time I am in town.

Again...amazing staff that like working there. That is a great start to any bar/restaurant. Cheers!

Lively events, great entertainment, good food and drinks, welcoming, and efficient staff in a large,open, al fresco setting. A quiet-ish enclave just off the busy main artery of town. If in el Coco, don't miss it.

Eight of us had dinner and drinks at the Garden Bar last week. The atmosphere is amazing, the food was great, and the music had us all dancing. I highly recommend this place.
