I got the names of the two restaurants mixed. If this is the restaurant with meat as their main than I rated not as highly as the fish restaurant. My husband wanted to try a second appetizer no only one sir!!

Good service and decent Costa Rican seafood. A local may have to show you were it is just off the main road but visible.

It's a placer for local People. The fish in "a la diabla" sauce is really good. The ceviche has shopped tomatoes wich gives a diferent taste.

This restaurant is a good place to eat in Puntarenas. I had a good Mexican spicy meal & local beer. The service was good, the price reasonable & the food tasted good.

I visited the place too manny times always enjoy the food which is really good and fresh. But I dont feel they deserve 5 stairs becuase the facilities are really poor and the service is way too slow.
