If you are familiar with currys, coconut sauce and spicy dishes, you will be very disappointed. We had two coconut sauce dishes: one with veggies and the other with fish fillet. Both tasted poorly. I mean it was not bad, but they both lacked flavor....More

Our group of 4 stopped here for a quick lunch. Each of us had a different version of their rice dish. All were great! The ceviche to start was so fresh and flavorful. Also, the owner was very nice and hospitable.

Looks are deceiving. This place isn't much to look at, but the food is great. Awesome ceviche. The snapper was fresh and tasty. The fish filet (I think it was marlin) was fresh and served with tasty rice. Bata boom boom!

I'm really surprised this place isn't packed with tourists. It was the best food we had on the caribbean side of Costa Rica. Absolutely delicious and authentic food. The chefs prepared fish, meat and vegetarians dishes in an amazing coconut curry sauce. If you want...More
