All is said with the header. Just 50 mts. behind an Italian opened a nice restaurant named "Red Snapper". Have a cold beer on the terrace with spectacular view over Puerto Limon. Live Music at week ends. Expensive. PLEASE NOTE: The below opinion is on RED SNAPPER !

While most excursions in Limon have you running away from the city, you have to make sure that you get a ride to the top of the city and check out the view while dining or drinking at El Faro.

I have been going to Limon for 6 years and just discovered this restaurant through a friend 4 days ago. I have already made a second trip there! The view of the Caribbean, Uvita Island, and the entire city of Limon is breathtaking. The service couldn't be better and the food was wonderful. It is now my favorite restaurant in... More

Our visit to El Faro was excellent. It is located on a hill top overlooking the town and blue waters below, this restaurant serves up a wide spread of delicious dishes. Every month they introduce a new item to their menu. We ate a beef steak in a raspberry sauce gravy and baby pork ribs in a mango sauce, both... More

The food is tasty and served nicely, they have a very friendly staff and it is not pricey at all, some locals have the impression that it is. The view is breathtaking even in the day. Very romantic

I had the most excellent Spicy Fajitas and patacones!! We stopped in on the way back from ziplining over the rain forest. I wish I could recreate this dish.

I ate the seafood soup and four hours later started vomiting amongst other things violently ans uncontrollably until I was admitted to the clinic where I stayed over night hooked up to an IV. Need I say more?

My husband, two friends, and myself had a one day stop in Puerto Limon, off a cruise ship. We went to eat in one restaurant on the beach and did not have a good experience there, so we asked a local tour guide to take us to a nice place...and he brought us to El Faro. The experience in El... More
