Very tasty food and friendly service- would highly recommend the eggplant carpaccio. Nice setting right on the beach.

The best food you can get in Playa Venao. We ate there several times and it was all excellent. For breakfest get the Healthy Breakfest, and for dinner or lunch I would recommend the spicy tuna and the polenta.

This place is both a restaurant and a lounge at the beach. Very low key the night we were there. Good food and great ambiance. The shrimp ceviche was really good and the fresh sesame seed crusted local Tuna was cooked to perfection. The place closed a little early on the night i went so we enjoyed drinks at the bar after dinner. Cool music and a nice bartender made the bar and lounge a fun place. We were lucky enough to experience the once a year blue glow of the Plankton in the water outside the restaurant. What a great way to spend a night. Good food and drinks, great music and blue plankton lighting up the waves as they came to shore.

This was my first trip to Playa Venao since El Sitio and the resort were built. I loved the open 'bahio' look for this restaurant. My wife had the Greek Salad which she said was very fresh but had a touch too much lemon juice on it. I was very disappointed in the veggie burger which cost $2 more than a beef burger. The menu said it was black beans and onions but I couldn't taste any onions. The bun was ok but nothing special and the patty was totally tasteless, except for the mustard they poured on it to the point I scraped as much as possible off. I do not like great quantities of mustard, ketchup or mayonnaise and this burger had globs of all three. I wouldn't order this again but would tell them beef with no condiments. The view alone is worth returning for.
