The food was very good, but not cheap. We went there at night, so no beautiful view or sunset for us. It was November, overcast, and short daylight times. Luck of the draw. Drinks were nice, but in Costa Rica (at least around this whole area) there aren't much draft beer, most is bottled and few. Local beer is king... More

After spending some time on the beach, I was ready for lunch. Had some of the best ceviche ever at Raphael's. For the mahi mahi tacos, the server brought me these home-grown peppers that provided the right amount of kick. And the view towards the ocean is AMAZING. If you're lucky, you'll see plenty of wildlife roaming around. I saw... More

This restaurant has a amazing view of the bay. Try to be there at sunset. We had a beautifully prepared ahi in a very creative presentation. The tres lèches cake is to die for.

We had a great experience here - it was recommended because we asked where we were most likely to see monkeys and sloths and Terrazas has treetop views. The staff was super helpful and friendly and came and got us when they spotted howler monkeys and a male three-fingered sloth outside the front of the restaurant! The food was great... More

Got a recommendation from a guide to try this restaurant for good seafood. They have a good selection of many types of food, including sushi. Super friendly, owned by three brothers. Great guitar music during dinner. Nice views when it is light out. Very pleasant experience.

Went here with my mum last night and were really pleased with our meals. I had the chicken burrito and she had the prawn rice. Lovely location overlooking the bay for the sunset. Would recommend!

We visited here for beers during one day and an evening meal on another. The view by day is spectacular so worth a visit. There are three friendly dogs who live there and roam around the restaurant. The staff and owner were very friendly and so that was good. There was a traditional guitarist visiting tables when we were there... More

Stunning location,with views out to sea. Great menu with lots of choice and well cooked food. By far the best value for money meal we had on our trip. Great for sunsets( we didn't see one were due to go back in the evening,a nice thunder storm stopped us).

An Overseas Adventure Travel selection...Outstanding location, situated overlooking the PO from its llocation about 300 meters up on the side of a hill. Tables are arranged to optimize viewing. The seating was comfortable, the service was outstanding and the menu, we preselected our meal, varied and well done. The "tuna salad" was in FACT AHI tuna, expertly prepared and served... More
