Perfect beachfront restaurant with a great menu and staff. Seafood is their specialty and they do it well. Plenty of food and reasonable prices. Yellowfin tuna and shrimp was some of the best I have ever had.

The ceviche was terrible (old) and when we complained they replaced it with a mixture of old and new. The colour difference, texture and taste was not horrible. They claimed that the Tuna was fresh so we ordered the seared... More

Great setting - tables on the beach shaded by trees. Had the chicken soup and it was great. Nice chunks of chicken and lots of veggies in a tasty broth.

This is one of a small group of restaurants that are on the beach..They all have a great view but this has some of the best food in the group. Service was very good and the beers were cold.

We stayed at La Gaviota Tropical, where Roberto's was located and we enjoyed every meal we had there. Great place for watching the sunset, lunch after swimming, or breakfast. Wait staff is friendly and food much better than any of the other restaurants we tried in the area. Ceviche very good, breakfast burritos very tasty, lots of choices!

Good date night location. Good food, service, location and view. Have a cocktail by the rooftop pool and watch the sun set before dinner.

This is great spot with good local fare and fresh sea food, excellent service, ample potions. You will not leave hungry. The kind of experience that you would expect in Costa Rica. I highly recommend.
