Great local restaurant owned by local family! Really good food and great service, no frills, just good fresh food with real nice presentation and portions. After eating there once, we had to go back once more to try different dishes, beautiful view!!

I definitely do not recommend this overpriced restaurant. My friend and I past the place and at the entrance explicitly asked if they could make us the fish of the day on the grill (not fried), which they confirmed, so we entered. We repeated (in Spanish!) about 5 times that we did not want anything fried, but only on the... More

We reserved a table with a view of the sunset. Service was a bit slow, but there was no rush as the view was incredible. Food was delicious. Even though they were know for their seafood, I ordered their steak, which was fantastic! I would recommend getting there during happy hour to get two drinks for one--the piña colada was... More

Paulo and Gabriel were awesome! The whole experience of service was great! The food was also amazing. We live in San Jose, Costa Rica and the sushi here was better than anything in the "big" city. We also recommend the ceviche and the Mahi Mahi with shrimp.

This place was recommended by our driver, who lives in Jaco, and took us from La Fortuna to Manuel Antonio. We love local recommendations. The restaurant is a quaint size that adds to the really cool vibe. The inside its quintessential central american pacific coast vibe. It would be great for a date night, but we had our two small...

Went there for happy hour and we had great time with the people we met, the monkeys and iguanas having a show for all of us. Juanito the Iguana is very entertaining

The view is breathtaking and their "Catch of the Day" delicious. Worth every penny. Mid priced place, not cheap.

We came a little early and Raphael came out and welcomed my husband and I. Although the restaurant wasn't quite open yet he made an exeption and opened early just for us. His hospitality was 100! They have live entertainment and the views are unbelievable! Best EVER!!!! We had the ceviche, fresh tuna, and the breaded prongs. ALL three dishes... More

The food was good but it's definitely tourist prices here which is to be expected due to location. Their surf and turf lobster and steak was priced at almost £50 (U.K. Sterling) so we didn't order it. My chicken in rosemary and orange sauce was well cooked and tasty but it took quite a while for our drinks to come... More
