Great location to have a dinner. The restaurant has a beach grill where you sit at picnic tables right on the beach enjoying the view and probably a lovely sunset over the Carribean. On friday nights you can enjoy lobster night, where you have a choice of lobster, lobster or lobster. It is not the cheapest place, but again location... More

We went for the Friday night lobster evening where they sell fresh lobster and tuna. Best lobster I've ever had! Don't think, just go there!

Booked for a table of 12 and arrived to discover no record of the booking with the Resteraunt because no one was checking the event organisers inbox!! Fortunately the team at the Resteraunt came together and put on a lovely high tea. All guests were impressed.

Very laid-back bar/restaurant on the beach. We had some wine and beers, a salad and pizza, all very good.

We had lunch here and enjoyed it very much. It was quiet compared to the other lunch restaurant. We had the moroccan chicken salade and the spicy chicken sandwich which were both good. Also the service was good.

Tucked away at the end of the boardwalk at Papagayo Beach area sits this wonderful, sexy restaurant. There are five or six other restaurants and bar along the boardwalk but this one is consistently busy while the others not so. That is always a first clue for me if I am new to an area. They did not disappoint. Pricey... More

My wife and I both decided to order the red snapper with risotto as this was the day special. We didn't regret! The fish was cooked to perfection and very tasty, the risotto complemented the dish. Portion size was good as well with some vegetables on the side. Coffee and creme brûlée to finish (big portion, good to share!). Lovely... More

Had dinner at October 31st. Started well, waiter friendly and thinking along with us (suggestions about the wine and main course). Starter 100% tuna (tuna prepared in 3 different ways) with a Sauvignon Blanc was fine. But then for the main course (Red Snapper) things went wrong. First of all the dish was kind of tasteless and through their own... More
