This restaurant is a great value - prices are very reasonable, the food is fresh, the kitchen and restaurant clean, and they even sell baked goods (get the pineapple upside-down cake!). The upstairs dining area offers a view of the bay.

We came here for lunch. The menu is varied and the prices reasonable for Drake Bay. The ambiance is pretty basic, service so-so and the food just okay. There are better places to eat in town.

Although frequented by english speaking persons, the waitress appeared to understand absolutely no english and everything was done via pointing and hand signals. Mama did cook a good meal, but by the time we received it, it was time for us to leave so all... More

We ate here three times when we were here. It was one of the most relaxing places to eat. We watched an iguana climb a tree and eat its lunch as we were having ours. They make excellent bebidas. Every meal comes with a salad and beans and rice. Friendly waitstaff too.
