Stopped here for lunch. The staff was friendly and attentive and the setting is beautiful. Right on the beach and the patio is shaded and breezy. Cocktails are delicious and big. Food is fresh and local. Coming back one day for dinner. 😄

We went for lunch and a little later than typical lunch hour. It was not super busy and our Service great. I think just calling when you arrive in CR will work. A day or two notice for the day you an to eat at establishment.
