We stayed in Potrero Beach for almost 2 weeks and wanted to try all the places in town. PlaeMar has potential. Their beans in the casado were the best along with their home made hot sauce. Tropical drinks were all from fresh fruit and tasty....More

We ate twice at this restaurant because it was close to Playa Flamingo and Playa Potrero and there was a beautiful view of the beach. The menu was standard Costa Rican food. Our kids liked to play in the rocks and small play structure. There...More

The location by the sea is worth a visit. It was very busy when we came and the kitchen was working hard to get the dishes out. The food is very traditional and the prices are fair for the location.

With the tree-trunk wooden tables, shaded by palm frawn tiki umbrellas, it doesn't get much more authentic feeling. Great location to watch the boats and the beach, this place is fantastic. With mostly Costa Rican typical food, you can't go wrong. However they do have...More

We had been out fishing that morning and Pleamar was located on the beach close to the marina. There isn't much to the place... the building with the bar and kitchen, some tables with palapas and the great view. We ordered some Casado con piscado...More
