If you appreciate a great piece of grilled meat or fish, this is the place to be in Samara! Nice setting, great food and friendly staff! Although the price is slightly higher than the Costa Rica standard, the food is worth it!

Don't miss El Lagarto when you visit Samara. It was excellent. We didn't expect CR to have such high quality beef but they do and this restaurant is stellar. You can watch them cook your meal if you are so inclined over a massive wood...More

My husband and I ate here during our time in Costa Rica last week. We visited on a tour for a week and this was hands down the best meal we ate. We were disappointed the Playa Samara location didn't have an ocean view, but...More
A very pleasant meal at a reasonable price. We followed a recommendation from our hotel and weren't disappointed. Mostly grilled meat or fish, cooked over wood embers in full view, served with baked potatoes and simple veg. Very friendly and helpful staff. During our meal...More
