We have returned again to this restaurant and it maintains its good quality in the food it offers, as well as very good attention and customer service ; Has the advantage that if you have your pet dog, has a special place to be able to have it with you. We recommend this Restaurant.

The place is a convenient one to have breakfast if you left the city to the beach early in the morning. But the food is really average. Nothing extraordinary.

Well, came here last night when it was slow and food was adequate, however, this morning was altogether different! Pinto rice was crunchy! I was so excited as this was my first taste of a local favorite and it sucked to say the least. Service was so slow and staff kept head down as they worked so was next to... More

The wait staff is quick and very efficient. The food was so, so. We stopped for lunch since we have driven past the location for many years and finally had time to stop. We had a typical casado and we were very unimpressed. The beans were canned, the chicken was overcooked and dry. The fried plantain tasted like it was... More

We stopped here after leaving the ferry on our way back to San Jose. We were looking for a quick lunch and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and service. Open air restaurant was very comfortable on a hot day. Prices are not cheap but the menu is varied and there is something for everyone.

I just stopped here because I was driving a long way (4+ hours) and wanted somewhere easy to park and this place looked busy so I thought "it must be good". The place was filled with locals so I knew I had chosen wisely. There were almost as many staff as there were people at tables so service was prompt.... More

Just passing by and swung in for lunch because of the beautiful view. Obviously they know how to run a business as the place was clean and staff was attentive. We had a seafood dish and the mixed salad Ingredients fresh and meal cooked to perfection. A nice little find along the road.
