Tourist and locals. Not very expensive, good food for the price. We ate here a couple of times, and walked down for drinks in the afternoon. Ricky and his daughter were very nice and made us feel welcome. Gave us great information for the area....More

I stopped in for a lunchtime order of patacones--fried mashed green plantains--with refried beans (ground beans here in Costa Rica--frijoles molidos). The food was very good, ample portion, and the coffee was the perfect pick me up. I've been to Ricky's in the past and...More

We had dinner here one night and were very happy with our choices. We had a shrimp dish and the fried red snapper. Both were excellent. The ceviche was also a great choice. The staff was friendly and efficient. We would eat here again.

Good place to hang out, drink beer, eat and watch people. The food is fine, nothing fancy or mind blowing but the location is super and the Cahuita National Park is walking distance.

Ok, but nothing special. The rice and beans we ordered was nothing compared with the one we ate in Manzanillo.

Service was terrible! The food was bland and had no flavor. I am not sure how you can screw up fried plantains but they managed to. Also, the food made me sick for two days. If you value your dining experience skip this place.
