The breakfast here is very good. Gallo pinto or huevos rancheros is the best! The fresh fruit can't be beaten. Beachfront tables in the shade and friendly staff. Excellent.

We stayed at the hotel for several days so ate here may times.The breakfasts were good with US and Costa Rican styles, and the dinners were tasty local staples. It gets a bit special when they have the BBQ or taco evenings, both of which we can recommend. It's always nice to sit on a beach and eat a lazy... More

We never ate anywhere twice and we went to this place three times. Taco Tuesday and the BBQ on Wednesday night and breakfast. The service and staff are amazing and speak English, The food was very good and lots of it. The ambiance was wonderful, right on a beautiful part of the beach. Highly recommend this place to eat.

The food is great! Good ceviche, and excellent Typico Costa Rican breakfast. The staff is the best in town. Most of them have worked there for many years, and they are great.

We had breakfast & lunch here on a couple of occasions last week. The location can not be beat! The banana pancakes were delicious, my husband had the western omelette (although it had a different name) with some yummy potatoes. At lunch we had the burgers which were cooked to perfection. The service is excellent, the local ex pats &... More

The food is good and you can eat right on the beach. I have eaten here many times. I find the breakfast good but you can get better lunch and dinner one minute away in either direction--Roberto's or Aqua Sport.

Awesome food and services. Taco Tuesday and BBQ Wednesdays and Saturdays should not be missed. Staff is friendly, responsive and the food is well worth the reasonable prices.
