Reviewed yesterday NEW

Food was only average for what we paid for it. The service was very poor, we were left waiting a lot. There was large party close to us and that interfered with the service we received.

I had the seafood curry soup and OMG, there was so much seafood, I had to get my husband to finish it! Great spot on the main road with a nice view. A wild storm blew in when we were there, so we just moved inside and waited it out. Great service.

Wonderful restaurant on the main hwy in Puerto Viejo. If you get a chance to meet the owner, he is a great guy and you should go with his recommendations. He will not steer you wrong.

I had dinner one night and decided to order a chicken curry! It was sooo good and spicy. They also had a buffet that night which looked very good, but I was in the mood for chicken curry.

This restaurant is a cut above most of the others in the area. Yes it is a little more expensive but there a lot of good tastes in store. Service is also on another level to what you experience elsewhere. Well worth a visit.

The best sushi in town you can find at Chile Rojo! The owner is a very nice guy, who helpful and attentive like the whole service. The sushi we ate was fresh and has the right combination of rice and fish. We can really recommend this restaurant. The mojitos we had there were great, too - not to much sugar!

Thank Irina D
