the food here was really good, their drink selection is amazing, the view and relaxation is amazing, the service is extremely poor, we waited about 20 minutes to even get acknowledged, while other tables got sat, drinks and orders taken before we even got a hello. But Id still go back for the drinks and food.

We enjoyed the delicious food. Go at happy hour to enjoy drinks and wait for the sunset over the ocean.

Great for lunch and dinner, good views, great cappuccino and lattes. The Tuna was delicious, Arroz Con Pollo, best in Costa Rica. We ate here several times over 3 days in the area.

Ate there twice, once after our visit to Manuel Antonio National Park, and once during a lazy beach day. Food was excellent, staff was on point. Nothing to complain about. The smoothies were fantastic. Thanks!

Average food... overpriced as well. The appetizer with the trout was pretty good. I liked the fries too. They're like jack in the box fries but in wedges! Tuna burger was just ok and my bf didn't like his Casado at all. He left pretty much his whole meal intact.

We went for dinner and had the fish and tuna. Both were delicious. Keep in mind you will need to add the tax 13% and 10% tax which makes these as expensive as London. The waiter was really nice and friendly and recommended the food but the person who took payment was very rude hence the rating. HE was wearing... More

Seafood is clearly the thing to order at Marlins. The calamari appetizer comes with toasted bread and is cooked perfectly. The fish tacos are also fresh with great guacamole as well as fresh tortilla. Crowded and the waiters can go missing on occasion -- but we ate there twice!

This restaurant is located right across the beach and right at the entrance of the street we had to take to our hotel. The food is traditional and good. Depending on the time of day it can be busy and you have to wait a little bit longer, but the food is great, maybe a little expansive. They have a... More
