Really enjoyed lunch here and had a typical Costa Rican meal...beans, rice, salad and meat. Was well prepared and tasty. Be sure to ask for the Lizano salsa for your rice and beans.

Went to this locals bar/restaurant after arriving in Playa Grande because it was close to where we were staying. They have a limited kinds of mixed drinks so we stuck to beer and ordered a large meat pizza. It was good but not great.

Not sure what you are walking into but the service and food were good. Would like to come back at night and see what the nightlife is like. Great local, fresh food.

This is a super cute little spot with a pool--that the restaurant let customers swim in.Nice spot to grab a cold Imperial, but we got the fish casado and the fish was super dry. Not our favorite casado.

We only went there for breakfast. The lady who serve us was so sweet and kind. The food was great but the best was the vibe in the atmosphere!!

Good food at reasonable prices. Restaurant was clean and the service was good. Restaurant has open walls to allow for a nice breeze after a hot day on the beach. Short walk from the Playa Grande Beach and is located right beside a mini mart where you can pick up beer and groceries.
