This year we dined several times at Bastos and we were never disappointed. Be it their hamburgers or their fish, the food is always tasty and enjoyable. Great spot away from Centro to have a peaceful meal.

Our party of 5 went to Batso's Grill on a Sunday night. Very small establishment so be prepared to wait. Very casual. The Batso family runs the restaurant. Arrachera(skirt steak) is their speciality per the owners.

Warning - closed Thursdays. The food! DELICIOUS. My son had the Arrichara - my wife and I the "Bumpy Fish" - hands down the best food we had in a week. A little hard to find this place and the restaurant is not much too look at. There is a reason it is rated so well on TA - its... More

The fish skewers were out of this world. If you prefer great tasting food to five-star prices, this would be your kind of place.

One of the best meals! The price for siete was $75us. Included drinks for adults, all were very happy and walking distance from the house. Football in the park after topped it all off. This place is a must have!

We like to stop here, sit on the sidewalk and watch Isla go by. The location is perfect for watching the neighborhood and the food is always good. It takes a while, but enjoy some wine and relax...you're on vacation.

Every once in a while you discover a true gem, Basto's is our absolute favorite dining spot. Hop in a taxi and find the BEST chef on Isla. The place is tiny but the food is not only reasonable but perfection , especially any of the fish dinners. This is a family operation and it shows in the friendly service... More

On the south side of the island near Limon. This place has some amazing food and great spicy green sauce. Highly recommend. Arracharra was amazing.

We make a point to visit this restaurant at least once every trip. Hop in a cab and go for dinner. Small, casual place. The food is excellent, and if you have a budget, this will fit in very well. The prices for the food quality some of the best on the island. The beef is a specialty.
