Most of all I loved the atmosphere here. The cafe is really bight and fun and they had good, beach-y music playing. Many other restaurants in Pavones didn't have music. We enjoyed the hummus plate. We also liked the banana and peanut butter smoothie and the iced "yoga coffee"... AMAZING!! Also, the bathroom was much nicer and cleaner than the... More

Staying at Cafe de la Suerte right before Christmas was an amazing experience. Ran was so kind and made us feel at home with his welcome. The location couldn't be better, you are right at the heart of the cute town of Pavones and steps away from the amazing wave of Pavones. I'd go there again in a heart beat!!

Super staff! The best smoothies ever!! Ate here many times with my family in the 3 months we stayed in Pavones. The jungle buzz balls are super addictive! Seriously, do not miss this place. Awesome view of the surfers from the patio!

We came here for lunch and it was very good food. Relaxing vibe and friendly owners. We didn't return again as the food is quite expensive compared to other places. Nevertheless we can recommend eating here.

Wonderful family runs the restaurant and even though we ate early we could tell it was a local hangout. Food was good, warm, fast and reasonable priced. The trip from Golfito to Pavones was very memorable with unpaved roads, rocks, terrifying bridges and many views of ocean. Even though it was rugged, it was well worth the trip to see... More

Any time we were in Pavones we would end up at Cafe Suerte for a bite to eat for a fruity drink. The owners are very friendly, helpful and do an excellent job of supporting the community by hosting venders, birthday parties, etc. The quiche is amazing and you may even find yourself day-dreaming about it!
