The place fooled us because it looked OK at first. It is the only place I saw to sit and eat at a table and chair in the airport (early May 2017), and being pretty hungry we were not too picky. Expected the food to be pricey as it's in an airport, but not this bad - especially for such... More

Prices for an airport restaurant are a ripoff! Totally unacceptable to take advantage of visitors. The prices are 5-10X what they are outside the airport. After traveling the world, this place stands out as the biggest offender. They should get a clue and be reasonable!

This place has a captive market as there's no where else to sit down & eat. We paid $61 for one chicken lettuce wrap, portion of fries, 2 small bees & Glass of wine. Quality of food is what you'd expect in a high street Burger chain served in plastic table wear. We ate around 2pm, 1.5hrs before our plane... More

If I could give this place negative points I would. Four of us had breakfast. We arrived at five am after a three hour drive and we wanted food and coffee. I ordered a breakfast croissant with egg and cheese. It was not warm at all and came on a plate with not even a garnish. No fruit sides etc.... More

We had some time to kill before out flight right around lunch time, so we decided to grab a bite to eat. As many others have shared, this very loud and energetic spectacle of a restaurant is a complete ripoff!!! The food was okay and service was friendly but the prices are way out of whack! They have a bit... More

If you're a fan of paying a ludicrous amount of money for inedible food that you immediately throw in the garbage, then Players is the place for you! Be sure to bring the whole family! This way you can offer your first born in order to pay for the food you just spent 15 minutes staring at while regretting the... More

This was the only bad thing about our trip in Costa Rica. This place is overpriced and Terrible food. We ordered two English muffins and hash browns, she charged us for two ham and cheese paninis, total was USD $28. We told her she charged us for the wrong items and instead of refunding the cashier just said "they are... More
