The restaurant offers a delightful open-air dining space. At first glance, the prices seemed a bit high, but the food was AWESOME, with lovely presentation and flavors. The owner and his family work side-by-side with the other employees and are very friendly people.

This lovely spot near the beach has obviously had a lot of investment. It doesn't have the rustic, local feel of most of the restaurants and bars around Puerto Viejo. All the things that make a place like this smart, efficient and well polished can...More

Honestly, the best food and atmosphere in Puerto Viejo. Not the cheapest, but the closest you will find to a European or American restaurant. Great seafood and steaks.
