Description: New Management! Beach front restaurant. Second entrance to Playa Hermosa. Open year-round. Liquor license. Open for lunch and dinner.
Reviewed 1 February 2016

On the beach, open air (under a roof in inclement weather).
This is Costa Rica. Everything is on relaxed, Tico time. There are friendly dogs on the beach, some flies and (gasp) SAND! Good, typical dishes as well as an orientation toward tourist tastes. Friendly English speaking service. Pulpo ceviche and pupol salad are great, casados an inexpensive meal. A great place for lunch. Live music in evenings.

We ate at AquaSport for an appetizer on Jan 22, and then for dinner on Jan 26. This restaurant is located in an excellent spot right off the beach, roughly midway down the Playa Hermosa beachfront.

On the night we had dinner, there was live music which only added to the great outdoor ambience. There was a bon fire lit on the beach behind the singers which was lit as the sun was setting over the ocean. Does it get better than that?

We were a group of four and ate different meals, all excellent and enjoyed by all. Our meals included coconut shrimp appetizer, fish tacos, red snapper, peruvian potato salad and catch of the day. Everything was excellent in taste and appearance.

The service here was also excellent, The servers were prompt, responsive and very courteous. The internet went down when we we went to pay for our dinner meaning credit cards could not be accepted and our server could not have been more apologetic.

Playa Hermosa is an extraordinary location. Our group of four travel extensively and have visited many beach destinations. Playa Hermosa is a stretch of beach about one mile long and shared between local residents and tourists alike. The beach never got crowded and even fewer people seem to use the southern end so if you want tranquility, you will find it here.

We were fortunate to find a condo unit to rent that stepped right onto the beach (Sol Y Mar). There are at least 4-5 very good restaurants and bars right along the beach front which allows you to take a very pleasant walk along a gorgeous beach to your dining destination. This aspect of Playa Hermosa made it one of the most memorable experiences of our week in Costa Rica. No worry about having a few drinks at dinner when you can simply follow the stars home!

Difficult to find but well worth it. Delicious, unique local food. Fun eclectic decor inside the bar. Or take your food outside to enjoy on the beach while watching the sunset. There are multiple tables and chairs on the beach, as well as a tree swing and some other little activities.

If you are visiting during the rainy season like we did, bring a jacket because it gets a bit breezy and cool on the beach after a good rain. Thankfully, our server was quick to wipe the rain off our seating so we could enjoy ourselves outside.

A very nice, relaxed beach bar in Playa Hermosa. One of the few spots with ample beach chairs so you can lay in the sun and order your drinks. Cindy was a great waitress! We skipped a busy day tour to relax on the beach and we knew it was a great choice the moment we found this spot.
