This is the bar where everyone goes too, its beach front so you can go inside and grab a Imperial or Pilson (Costa Rican beers) then walk out where the DJ is at or go out and lay on the beach, Reggae music played which was incredible and it was a good mix of locals and tourist!

If live music and cold drinks set to a Caribbean sunset, and the sound of waves sounds good, then this place is for you. Be warned, the service sucks, the food is just ok, and takes forever, and you will be asked to buy weed or cocaine. If you can overlook these things you will have a great time. If... More

They have the best chicken wings and coctels in all Puerto Viejo. Located at the beach. If you want to have some night fun Lazy Mon is a must, is simply the best, music and people.

This is an awesome place with the best daily night life entertainment and live music at almost every sunset. Definitely try out their new sandwiches with fresh baked bread and their pitas made by Pita Bonita, they are amazing. Beer on draft and a killer staff make this place a must for sure.

Looked better than it was. Poor service, they just did not seem to be interested in their customers. Waited a long time for our food, and for part of the wait it was just sitting on a counter by the kitchen for a long time. Food quality nothing special.

The salads and burgers were so delicious. The Caribbean cobb salad and Mediterranean burger were good. I also had a taste of the caprese sandwich, and I would order that if I went back. We all loved our food and the view. It's on the beach. The service was really, really slow, but with the view it didn't seem like... More

The drinks are good but don't go here for dinner! I think they are called Lazy Mon for a reason... It took forever for us to get menus, then forever for us to place our orders, and when our food finally did come it was cold and the burger buns were stale. Also my husband had a pack of cigarettes... More

Indoor and outdoor dining...you can bring a family here after a day at the beach. A group of us went for dinner; music entertainment; food was good and flavorful. Local style food at a reasonable price

Low quality bar, low quality foods (taco, onion ring, wings), hippie place. You can feel that you are in Woodstock in 1969, and Jimmy Hendrix will play soon while Janis Joplin sings: "Oh Lord..."
