Certificate of Excellence

Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 June 2018

We visited as per awesome TA reviews but did not find it to be great value for money in terms of seafood.
Their portions are fairly small, though presentation of the dishes is very nice.
We are not big eaters, and we've been to quite a few of CR restaurants at that point, so I had something to compare to.
Note: in the menu in section "Casados" 3 types of fajitas are listed - they are NOT casados - ie the portion of fajitas is quite small (in case you have a different idea about fajitas).
Fruit drinks are delicious (after you get what you ordered - the waiter initially brought the wrong one)

I would recommend you pay by cash but do check your bill carefully - their billing practice does not seem to be very accurate. Once we pointed out to discrepancy in our bill, the owner apologized and explained it out by the new waiter who's just learning his work - it seems that this excuse is being used routinely as a response to TA comments.

Overall, it is a decent place, but I am not sure why people are raving about it so much.

The staff was wonderful, the food very good and loved being in an authentic Costa Rica neighborhood. A must!

We went there following Trip Advisor’s tips and it was a great surprise! We ordered the mussels in diabolic sauce, the tuna and the fish of the day (marlin) with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Just perfect! And they surprised us with a special and delicious desert for our honeymoon! We loved it! Excellent food, great service and reasonable price!

We went there encouraged by TA eeviews and left more than satisfied. The level of service is excellent, food is abundant and of great quality. I had fish ceviche, fish casado and lemonade. It was very tasty, well-served and plentiful. Only positive remarka, great value-for-money in Quepos.

We visited here after looking at the reviews on trip advisor and weren’t disappointed. The tuna and the sea bass are excellent, freshly caught and prepped to order. The service was superb, highly recommended!
