This a little hidden gem in Brasilito. It was a short walk from our awesome hotel (Quinta Escencia B&B), tucked away off a dirt road by the beach. There were just a few tables, and we chose to sit outside so that we could see the sunset. We had a casado with fish and it was fresh and tasty. This... More

I had the blackened fresh tuna which was very good. I requested vegetables and rice as the side dishes and the vegetables were also very good. Nice change from the typical Costa Rican fare. Staff were very pleasant and friendly.

Such friendly and nice people. The food was great, although the portions could be a bit bigger for the price.

We came here because we were looking for a great coffee and we found it here. But furthermore we were welcomed warmly and we got a tipical local desert and a slice of banana cake for free. We recommend this café to everyone! The staff is so friendly - pura vida!

The food was amazing with a beautiful view out to the coast! If visiting Brasilito, its a must-go restaurant with traditional Costa Rican dishes which taste amazing!!! Also friendly, welcoming staff who made the overall experience themselves.

We ate dinner here while in Brasilito. The food was inexpensive and quite excellent. We ate the fish casado, and it was one of the best we ate during our trip to Costa Rica. The servings are large, and the delicious black beans just keep on coming. The restaurant's setting is very rustic which adds to the charm. It is... More
