Our group had a very good dinner here recently. The special pasta was amazing with such fresh ingredients. The atmosphere is simple but it is clean and the owners are super friendly! We had no issues with mosquitos but perhaps that is due to time of year we visited (January). Definitely one to return to!!

We were on a long walk and it was getting hot at mid-day so we stopped in the shade at Frog. For lunch we each had the tortilla soup and we shared an order of guacamole. The soup was delicious with a robust tomato base and nice chunks of avocado and fresh cheese. The guacamole was almost like a hybrid... More

We have frequented Frog many times in the past four years and have never been disappointed. The food is consistently good and the beer is cold. We like to sit outside under cover and watch people go by. There are tables inside as well but we prefer to sit outside. Their caesar salad is a nice fresh crisp lunch.

Lovely restaurant inside and service was great! My husband loved the dinner we had... Version of penne pasta primavera ... Very tasty but I thought it was a little over priced based on the quantity received and the fact that it's pasta. We sat in the chairs they had located outside, in front of the restaurant because it was so... More

Nice family, basic restaurant. Horrible mosquitos!!!! My wife contracted Dengue fever and this was the only area with mosquito problems. They say day biters are the carriers of dengue, zika ect. We're not returning any time if day. Lots of places to eat in town center.

We have eaten here over 20 times now, over 3 years, and each time they blow us away by the quality of the food at such low prices. Nicho and his daughter have created a world class restaurant in this little out of the way town. Ambience is not its strong suit, but they make up for it with friendliness,... More
