“Small restaurant with delicous food”

El Rincon de Sandra
Ranked #20 of 64 Restaurants in Cahuita
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 January 2018

During our stay in Cahuita we'd lunch and dinner the restaurant. Both times it was very delicous. The staff was very friendly and fast. The restaurant ist small. It's very typical for the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. We really liked it a lot.

We wanted to eat an early dinner at this restaurant/soda after the hotel we were staying in recommended the place.
At first glance it seemed like a nice lokal little eatery with local food at very reasonable prices.
We were there at around 5:30pm. The owner (we assume Sandra) was not around but the restaurant was open and a lady who worked there didn’t really bother to greet us nor did she seem happy that we wanted to order something. She slammed the menus on the table and returned after a few minutes to continue being rude by asking for our orders in a very unfriendly tone (Dime!). We are able to speak Spanish but even that seemed to much of en effort for her as she simply answered ‘No!’ to our first two orders.
We then decided to leave. Absolutely disappointing.

Prompt and friendly service from Sandra. We ordered fish and chicken dishes and were delighted by the flavours and the rice and beans in coconut sauce and the huge patacones.

On April 15th I and my family wanted to have lunch at this place. We were hungry and excited to visit this high rated place, unfortunately they did not have so much options: no rice and beans, no sea food soup, no patty, no fish, and did not want to change the mashed plantain by rice. The service was unattentive. Very bad customer service.

The service was uneven and slow (and each dish appears to be individually prepared) but the food is really excellent. Seafood is super fresh and the sauces are almost sublime. Cahuita restaurants seem to specialize in various coconut based and coco-curry sauces and Sandra is no exception in this regard and they are amazing at Sandra's. Just have an extra Imperial cerveza. (This is an aside but the best beer in Costa Rica is probably Imperial and it is not a very good beer and beer in Costa Rica is unjustifiably expensive for the product). Long wait but definitely worth it. Our server even forgot what I ordered and had to ask me "what you tell me you want to eat?' Part of the experience, part of the vibe - Cahuita is great. Sandra's is not cheap but the food is worth it. Recommended.
