They have hands down the best and freshest ceviche in the area. Worth the 15 min drive past Uvita. They do not use sugar, and their limes are really sour. They make the ceviche with Pargo (Red Snapper). It is awesome. If you like your...More

Based on the reviews, our family of four each ordered the whole fried fish and ceviche for lunch. Totally delicious! They also have beer, mixed drinks, and great smoothies for the kids. Sitting at the back bar, facing the trees and the distant ocean, we...More

This is a very cute local restaurant. We always stop here on our trips in the area for ceviche. The whole fried fish is also yummy and patacones are great.

We've been returning to this small soda owned by two sisters for years. We go for their ceviche mix and their whole, fried fish which is perfect!

We really enjoyed our ceviche and fish fillet at this roadside soda. Beer is available but no wine. The only let down was the whole fish which had been fried and was a little dry

The food is good for a CR roadside stop but on weekends it gets very busy from all the travelers on the main road. The staff is very friendly but can't handle more than 3 tables. So when the place if packed it takes up...More

After traveling around Costa Rica for almost 6 weeks, my husband and I have gotten used to good, if simple, food that is inexpensive - we're talking $5-$8 per person. So we were pretty put out when we got to the Dominical/Uvita/Ojochal area where all...More
