This is no longer seven caves. It is now Los malinches. The food is amazing, staff is friendly. The bar is a nice atmosphere. It was newly opened when we were there but it has amazing potential and I can't wait to go back to...More

We got late at night, almost about closing time. We ordered 2 hamburgers in which they literally walk to the market right next to it to get the ingredients. Since it was late I guess they were sort of a rush and hamburgers weren't cook...More

Very good deal for Sunday BBQ dinners. Usually busy for this occasion, otherwise almost empty even during the high season.

Just had an amazing meal here! I'm picky and because it wasn't a bbq night I was having trouble finding something I liked-so I ordered mushroom sauce chicken without mushroom sauce. Another guy came out after to double check what I wanted since the waitress...More

Loved Seven Cave! Great fresh fish and the owner was wonderful. He was informative and it was an easy bike ride from the house.

This place was the best! It's pretty quiet during the day, but at night all the renters come out to eat their delicious pizza and BBQ! Despite there being only one waiter, service was not slow. Food was great, price was good, drinks are amazing!...More

Yes. The best thing is to stop by a day or two before and let them know you need a reservation in the little market next door. It is very casual so most people don't make reservations unless you need room for a larger group.

Wil-Mart, Playa Grande has been helping visitors enjoy Costa Rica and the Pura Vida life since 2012. Originally in Palm Beach Estates, we are now located at the entrance of Playa Grande for your convenience. With a Supermercado stocked with all the beer, groceries, wine and liquor that is authentic Costa Rican. Or if you want the comforts of home, we have the biggest selection of healthy imported goods in the area. Our restaurant in Palm Beach has been transformed to a food and drink extravaganza. With Mordos Fish and Chips restaurant and the Las Olas Brewery, craft beer washing down crisp fried sea bass is an experience in itself. Every Friday is a free live band music street party that goes on to midnight. Come dance with us, dine with us, and shop for the best selection and service in Guanacaste. If you cannot make it here, shop online at Wil-Mart.com for great selection and local delivery.
