Our tour guide brought us here for lunch. The restaurant is perched on top of the hill and has a beautiful view of the shore. Service was friendly and the food was really good. The atmosphere is the real draw here. Open air and breezy. You could just sit there all afternoon.

We decided to have lunch in Puerto Limon on a rainy day and we are so glad we found the Red Snapper. Now please note, there is NOTHING to do in Puerto Limon, the are a pretty new stop for cruise ships, and the area is poverty stricken and dirty. They are NOT set up for tourists, but we had... More

We have been welcomed open armed. Even if we went on a night we are pretty sure the view is nice. The plates were nice and delicious. Prices are good. Service is impeccable! The atmosphere was really nice with the DJ singing with his pretty voice!

The truth is that there isn't much to see in Limon. I think the best thing to do is to sign up for an excursion in the jungle but then again that isn't for everybody. My wife and I decided to have lunch at this place. The view was nice because it has a great location from a hill but... More

This restaurant has EXCELLENT food with a breathtaking view. We have the nut and gorgonzola ravioli and they were perfectly done, and good pasta can be hard to find in Costa Rica!. The owner, who is italian, is very friendly. I will definitely be back!

This restaurant serves up some great dishes! Our group enjoyed their meals and the cold beverages that accompanied them. You are able to get a wonderful view of the port and cruise ships from here.

Caribean and Italian cuisine, some seafood. Live music on weekends. Enjoy cold beers overlooking town and port. Certainly one of the best places in Limon. But do not expect high cuisine. Prices are relatively high. Pizzas are good, the fish we had was small and dry. For this quality sea food is expensive. (equivalent of 20 USD for a plate... More

Very busy with cruise passengers and only one waitress. She did a great job trying to serve everyone. Food was OK. In fairness, we may not have ordered their specialty as an English menu was not available. Other diner's meals looked a lot better than our fried shrimp. If in Puerto Limon...would try again.

I was with a small tour, and we ended up here for a lunch. The food was yummy, and the beer wonderful after a day of ziplining and boating. The view of the city is perfect.

Red Snapper has a great selection of local food and believe it or not, Italian. Beautiful view as the restaurant sits on top of the hill overlooking the town and the ocean. Great staff, reasonably priced. Enjoyed the food, including the Red Snapper they are know for.
