Great place to have a drink, watch the sunset and eat a good dinner. The tuna was delicious and the local dishes with plantains and curry were good too. There are vegan options as well.

When we entered the hotel property, the concierge at the entrance sent a golf cart to take us to the top of the hill where the restaurant was. We were eating... More

Ate dinner here on our last night in Costa Rica. It was fabulous! Good drinks, delicious appetizers, dinner, and dessert! Can't speak about the view because we arrived after sunset, but a really good atmosphere!

Not sure of your subjective comments on our wonderful tapas menu items. The level of our cuisine far surpasses any other in the area. We are disappointed that you were not thrilled but wish we had know that when you were here. More

We ate dinner here one night, breakfast 2 mornings, and drinks at the bar several evenings. The service is outstanding - especially at the bar (ask for Roy!). The drink menu is huge and everything is made fresh. The food is equally as delicious with lots of options that combine both local and Western styles. There's really something for everyone... More
