Been Playa Hermosa three times and every time, I made sure to visit this place. Loved the foods, especially the ceviches! If you want a place where the locals hang out at, this is your type of spot. Be sure to show up Saturday nights...More

Had two different great experiences here. Douglas was a good bartender and the family was so nice. All of the food was good and prices fair. Will be back in July!!

Eat and drink like a local. Delicious Costa Rican food, fresh fish and cold beers. Very friendly owners and patrons made us feel welcome. We were staying at the El Velero Hotel across the dirt road and visited frequently. We seemed to be the only...More

Ticos love it. Gringos stay away. Twice I went there and twice I got screwed over by the servers. This joint takes advantage of gringos by charging more for food and drink PLUS they seem to take pleasure in giving back incorrect change. Food is...More

This small local eatery, located across the street from El Velero Hotel, is a hidden gem. We stopped for a quick lunch before a sail boat trip. What a treat - the Casada was the best we had had on this trip. The Mahi-Mahi had...More

A great place to get a taste of authenticity. As a woman alone be aware that you are a mark for robbery. Do not carry valuables and do not walk on the beach after dark. Go to this bar with others and enjoy it but...More
