Menu is excellent and always cooked to perfection. You can wine and dine in an open atmosphere, with a pleasant breeze blowing by yoy. Waitstaff very friendly and know the menu.

We were sadly underwhelmed by the food, considering it was recommended to us. The menu looked good, but when the food arrived, it looked like it had been manhandled in the kitchen, and it tasted even worse. When we requested the check and paid it with having hardly touched our food, I'm assuming it was Marie, was none to pleased... More

We enjoyed an excellent dinner here - the sea bass was amazing! Everyone was very happy with their food. The service was very good and the live music was a great addition. We'll be back!

Food was excellent; all four meals. Also the dessert, a banana split and a similar dessert that was fruit (including banana) with ice cream. Excellent food, well prepared. The one blemish was the sea bass with scalloped potatoes. Both the fish and the potatoes were excellent, but the portions of both were small. Fortunately, my wife couldn't finish her meal,... More

We stayed at Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa and probably ate at Marie's at least 3 or 4 times during our stay. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. Just a 5 minute walk from the resort!

Marie's has been around a long time and seems to be getting a bit tired. We first visited 20 years ago! The menu is extensive and, in my opinion, expensive for the overall experience. The second night we went there for a special birthday dinner. There was one other couple seated when we arrived. Our 3 courses arrived nearly together... More

We have been eating regularly for the past four seasons at Marie's and it is a good the umpteenth time as it was the first time. Food is always fresh and tasty and it is a great place to sample Costa Rican cuisine for the first time. Breakfast , lunch, dinner are all good and the open air central location... More

Great reviews had us book this for our group the morning after our wedding. Maybe it was due to the number of people eating at a small restaurant at once, but there wasn't a single person who was happy with their meal. It was all bland and most people wished we had stayed at the hotel breakfast buffet.

The only reason why I don't give them one star is that the waiter was very nice and friendly. I don't even feel like writing about the food since it was so bad. The artificial flavor of prawns is something I had never witnessed before. It left this terrible taste in my mouth for whole day and I was feeling... More
