We ate at the restaurant four times during our stay at Si Como No hotel. The food was very good and the service could not have been better. We have never had service as friendly and competent. Great work Johnny and Omar

We stayed at the hotel and this was our "chill out" spot -- lovely views, incredibly nice and helpful staff, and the food was good (over all, we did not have a great food experience in Costa Rica, but Rico Tico's was very good).

Staying at the adjoining hotel we had a good breakfast here during our stay. The staff is great and helpful. The view over the forest and the ocean is fantastic. Later in the day they also mix a good cocktail in their poolside bar.
