We stopped at the Point since it was close by to where we were staying. The burgers were pretty good, not the terrible Costa Rican style you get most places, but actual USDA beef burgers with good ingredients. The bartender / waiter was very nice...More

Thanks for coming back! As you’ve probably seen, good meat is tough to find here. At The Point we rely on a special supplier for our USDA beef, and customers seem to love our burgers! Thanks for the compliment on our staff—-we’ve both been in...More

Popped in here to grab a beer before catching our afternoon shuttle to San Jose. We were pleasantly surprised with the veggie tacos and the DELICIOUS homemade mango salsa the owner makes. If we could have, we would have totally brought some home. Added bonus...More

Thanks Lisa! The Caribbean chicken is one of our favs too but sometime you just have to have a good old fashioned hamburger.

Cynthia, thank you for your post. Glad you made it to both Half Price Wings Friday AND Crispy Taco (and 2-for-1) margarita Monday. Hope to see you again, the Point is a “home away from home” for a lot of travelers and ex-pats.

Description
The Point...A different kind of Sports Bar.Sure we have sports on all (7) of our T.V's all the time...and sure we have hot wings and (U.S.D.A. beef) burgers...and sure we have ice cold beer and micro brew on tap, but did you know that we have local Caribbean cuisine made by the best chef south of Nicaragua?  Check out our open air restaurant/bar located on Black Beach, steps to the Caribbean Sea. A local hangout where tourists and locals come together to have a good ol' time.  So on your next visit to Puerto Viejo, top on by and say hi ya'll (before Paradise, we lived in New Orleans).  We will keep a seat warm, a cold beer, your favorite game on, and a fun time waiting for you!
