We enjoyed dinner one night and lunch another day. Not many lunch selections but the chicken strips were good as was my tuna dinner. We will visit again on our next trip to Costa Rica.

Consistently good food with nice presentation. Taco Tuesday is fun and the BBQ has an awesome surf and turf. The chef does a great job and the staff works very well together.
