I have tried several dishes there and I was never disappointed. However, if you are a vegetarian, there is very little choice, but this is normal in CR.

We have been to this restaurant several times over our numerous trips to Cahuita. They have signs outside and by the cashier inside indicating that they take a number of different credit cards. Initially, there was a nice young woman who would wait on us and gave us excellent service. And the food was very good. We had no trouble... More

I had dinner at this place with my girlfriend during a stay in Cahuita in March 2015. The restaurant is located in a side-street of the Cahuita main road, which makes it a little quieter than most others. They have a wide choice of food and drink options on the menu but not everything is available. Prices were reasonable and... More

The food was fine, and the same price as other sodas in town. But the service was really strange. The mature lady seemed to be deliberately misunderstanding us as we repeated and repeated what we wanted (all of which was on the menu). Even when we pointed to it she seemed confused. Then our meals came which were pretty good,... More

Nice food. Took a little while because she had to buy food first! Vegetarian choice limited (as always). No problem with children.

Why I prefer this restaurant to others in Cahuita? Because it is a little away from the crowd, it offers regular prices and typical Caribbean dishes (a fusion between Jamaican and Costa Rican cuisine). My favorite is fish (whole or filet) with rice and beans and salad. Wroth a try. The decoration is not comparable with some of the fancier... More

A favorite local hangout because the food is delicious and the staff is friendly. There are mainly typical Costa Rican dishes, so your get a chance to taste local food at a great price. We are visiting for 2 weeks and will eat here often. You can't go wrong if local authentic is what you are looking for.

The casado fish was great and a good price 6 dollars. The fish fillet was expensive for the small plate and also not a really great taste.

We got there by chance and it was worth it. It was a shame the restaurant was completeley empty, we guessed because it´s not in the main road, but the food was so tasty and the smooths were really good. I had a pargo for the first time and it was really nice. Service was amazing. Go there if you... More
