On arrival to Playa Hermosa the first thing we did was walk down the beach looking for a dinner spot. We had a great dinner under the lights right on the beach, the food was excellent, service was good.

We stayed at an adjacent hotel for 4 nights in December and ate here several times. Each and every time without fail they would attempt to add items to your bill or shortchange you. By example we had a cocktail for $10. We gave them a $100 note and got the equivalent of $70 back in Colons. When we challenged... More

This place is fantastic! Set right on the beach.....with a perfect view of the sunset--to me, this is one of the best places to go to have a meal or drinks on the beach. The staff are wonderful and friendly.... I keep going back because they are so consistent and friendly. Grey is a wonderful waiter

Good food...but you pay the price! Way over the top in costs! A dinner for two, can easily go to $100.00.

Fresh Tuna and shrimp special. Cooked to perfection at sunset. Memorable. Though it is enough for two.

Took our family of 6 (4 kids 10-17, husband and I) to Roberto's for dinner one night during our stay in Playa Hermosa. We had a wonderful time, delicious food, fantastic service, and were right on the beach! It was dark by the time we dined, but a short walk on the beach showed an amazing array of stars and... More

Fine dining atmosphere on the beach. The Fish soup was and ceviche was amazing. Fish very fresh and well prepared. A bit overpriced. Service very slow.

Three severs did their best to handle a full house, but we waited almost an hour for food and had to ask a couple of times for more drinks. Food was ok when it came, but nothing amazing and definitely not worth the premium prices. Lovely setting and great live music, but we won't be back.

Spent a couple of days hanging out at the beach at Playa Hermosa. Ate lunch here both days. Friendly staff, clean, well run restaurant. The Chifrijo and Tuna Sandwich were very good. The chicken burger was OK, nothing to write home about. The Ceviche Mixto was lousy. The octopus was super rubbery and the fish was very blah. Try the... More

Ate here all but 4 meals, it was just that good. Ate dinner, lunch and breakfast here (breakfast is for guests of the hotel only though).Tried out a few other places, but they were just not as good overall. Between the atmosphere, friendly staff, and good food it was just a winning combination! The menu has local favorites, as well... More
