We stopped in for a drink while we were waiting for the sunset. The bar did not give us an english menu for the drinks. The waitress also did not speak english so we had difficulty ordering anything but a beer. But she did go and get the bartender who could speak enough english so that we could order a... More

Thank you for your review! It's unfortunate that you rated us 3 stars based on your experience. Our regular menu is in both English and Spanish. I'm not quite sure any other restaurants on the beach have a drink menu in English. Goodness, there are so many drinks to offer, that we would have a book. Most of our staff... More

While waiting for the sunset we stopped in for a cold beer. The place is always busy and loads of English speaking patrons here. They serve burgers ect. Great place to stop in on the beach!!!

The food is good, the tables are a bit dusty because of the road right beside the restaurant (we went midday). We had ceviche and chicken rice. Both were good and fairly priced (especially compared to nearby Los Suenos). The place is right on the beach with pretty views of the water. It has a pretty loud juke box. A... More

Our fleeting time for pina coladas and ceviche pescado was memorable. The ceviche is absolutely delish and so fresh. The service is knowledgeable and kind.

My wife and I took a cab here for $6 from Marriott. The whole snapper with fries and salad as sides($14), my wife's Casado bisteca ($7) and several beer and rum drinks for $55. Couldn't beat quality for price! We even walked back on beach to our hotel but I advise bringing flash light.

This quaint little place is the first place you come to when you arrive at Playa Herradura and is right on the beach. They have a small menu with various options, although a lot is more typical Costa Rican than some may like. Staff is always friendly and food is good, as well as beer being cold. Nice place to...

I had read plenty of reviews for this restaurant and was looking forward to going there.

Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment. We really do appreciate it. Many taxi drivers, do bypass us, to give the customer a more upscale restaurant.
