I have reviewed this bar before but I want to inform others a bout this gem.Popeye and Tiffany the owners manage in the groove the staff Sean Arnaud and rotating bartenders make for a good time. Drinks are never slow coming and the food is great especially after a lot of rice and beans.Best burgers in Costa Rica!!!!! Daley specials... More

Wow what a nice review from Captain Zero, one of Puerto Viejo's originals and the subject of the book "Searching for Captain Zero." You are one of the folks who is keeping our little town funky, so we'll cancel out order for those linen tablecloths and tell Sean to return his tuxedo. More

This place is very nice, on the beautiful Playa Negra ! Beer is good, the view is awesome and free Wi-Fi ! It's great for those who stay in Playa Negra, but it's a bit far when you live in the village :( Still an awesome spot !

Thank you for the nice review. Our great Playa Negra friends are certainly our favourite customers, and we have regulars who travel from the other end of town by bike, skateboard, scooter, four by four....and even on horseback! Not too far to travel for a great cheeseburger and a cold craft beer. More

Don't be fooled by the outside appearance. We had appetizers that were delicious, and the beer was nice and cold! The beach front setting is very relaxing.

Thanks so much! I'm sure that you can see that we lead a pretty simple life here in the Caribbean. Most folks like to sit outside and look at the ocean while enjoying what we think are the coldest beers in town. Hope you come back and try some of our main dishes, such as our famous cheeseburger or one... More

This is an okay beachside bar but the posted prices on the menu did not match the actual bill. I was very disappointed as I expected better. The server accepted my adjustments to the final billing. Unfortunately this type of practice ensures we will never return.

Hi Lloyd. I am so sorry that you were disappointed in The Point. We've never had a complaint like this before, and I can only imagine that it was due to the mistake of a brand new server. Popeye and Tiffany are almost always on site at The Point, and are more than open to hearing any and all feedback... More

This bar it's located off the main road to get to Puerto Viejo, perfect location for me and my couple, since we were staying in Playa Negra, and it is right in between those two places.

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!
