We just returned from our first visit to Costa Rica and wandered into La Puesta Del Sol - and we are sure glad we did. We LOVED the fresh, homemade food and Vilma and Adriana and Doris! They couldn't have been more welcoming to us and sat and visited with us and it became our regular nightly stop for cocktails, food and conversations. We miss them already! My husband loves olives in his drink and they ran out - no big deal for us - but they ran out and bought a jar of olives just for him. Truly great people, good food, beautiful views and they were a wealth of information about local activities. Next time we are in Costa Rica, they will be our first stop.

We stopped in for a beer one unsuspecting evening, and had the best night of our trip at La Puesta Del Sol!! The staff was friendly and welcoming, we had a blast chatting with everyone. When Adriana learned we had hoped to fish but our initial plans had fallen through, she immediately connected us with the right people to line up an inshore rooster fishing trip for the following day (which couldn't have been any better!!). We went back for dinner and the ceviche was the best i've ever had. The fried plantains and chicharrones were also a hit. I seriously don't think you can go wrong with any item on their menu! We can't wait to go back to Costa Rica and until then, we'll be reminiscing about our nights at La Puesta Del Sol. A definite 'must' for cold beer, great food, and the perfect atmosphere!

We enjoyed our sunset here and would go back. Everyone is friendly and you have a great view of the water. I had the ceviche and it was very fresh. Never have tried marlin but it was great! Met the owner and enjoyed talking with him, we will be back for more cold beers

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us. Our Ceviche is our most loved and reviewed item on our menu. The cold beers do make a huge difference and one of the things we pay close attention to. You cannot be on a beach and not have a cold beer!!!!
Dennis is awesome and takes great care of our customers. We hope you will visit again.
Thank you again,
Adriana Berrocal
