Went for lunch had the shrimp salad which was very lovely also had the hotdog, it's huge, grilled to perfection. Our friends had the chicken nachos, different, but good. Waiters were pleasant and it's got a fabulous view right on the ocean.

This is a great location on Playa Hermosa for anyone looking to stay near the action. Just out of Jaco but on the main drag and not far. The rooms are nicely done, beautiful exposed wood construction. Some room can accommodate several travelers.

What a rip off paid $70 for my family to eat the left over frozen food, it was so bad that after a full day surfing i couldn't even eat it. I would have preferred to eat white bread that feel in the sand.

The food was great here! Excellent happy hour! The prices are a wee bit expensive but well worth it. We felt very satisfied with every meal we ordered! The soup is incredible!
