The tacos really didn't live up to much, the fish wasn't fresh and there were only 2 tiny prawns in my other taco - overall it wasn't very overwhelming. However , we did watch the woman singer serenade a crab. A bomb fire was set...More

We stopped in for Taco Tuesday and got just what we expected (hoped for.) The beer was cold, the tacos, very tasty and the service was spot on. My only problem is that the hot sauce left a bit to be desired. If there had...More

Inexpensive, tasty tacos - most definitely recommended - we'd go back again - good service and all very fresh.

We came to the bar and saw that there were lots of 2 for 1 offers in the menu. The piña colada that we were liking to ask for, was not included in the special unfortunately. The "why" was not explained to as, a exception...More

We stopped at Tasty Waves both times we visited Cocles Beach and it didn't disappoint. Tasty eats for a reasonable price. We tried the loaded nachos, fish tacos and the veggie burrito. My favourite part was their twist on a gin and tonic, the Slurry...More

Description
Tasty Waves is more than a humble cantina in beautiful Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, it's a lifestyle. We always strive to become your "home base", giving you local advice on where to go, what sites to see and how to get the most out of your journey or vacation. Our staff is more of a family and we always want you to feel welcome in our home. For the most part it's a relaxed atmosphere but don't get me wrong, we know how to party. Tasty Tuesday has become the biggest and most anticipated party of the week and we always show you a good time, so good that we close on Wednesday to clean up the aftermath. Thursday is Trivia Night, Friday is R.E.H.A.B., Saturday is Karaoke, Sunday Funday and Monday is our Movie Night with new and classics running on our 100" projector screen. Stop in, say hi and have a shot of Guaro with us. Tasty Waves Cantina ~ Livin' the Dream
