Very good dinners, especially the fish. Sitting on the bar facing the ocean, the beach & looking at palm trees as the sun sets and you will realize you are in paradise.

Do not get the burger, too small for what you pay. The chicken rice bowl is the play, and a frozen lemonade with mint. Quality food but you pay for it (that meal will run you around $18US). Great view, nice place. Service is pretty much indifference, which unfortunately I found in just about every restaurant/bar in Jaco/Hermosa.

This beautiful ocean front restaurant is locally run by a wonderful family which only adds to it’s authentic feel. After spending over a month in the area, my husband and I frequented this spot for our favorite breakfast, pictured here, the surfer burrito. Enough to share when accompanied by Playa Hermosa’s BEST smoothies. We’re talking REAL fruit! You really can’t... More

Went here for supper and to watch the sunset. Can't get a better spot for the sunset. The menu had lots of good sounding options. I ended up with chicken wings just cause they were 2 for 1 and my kids wanted them. My wife had a cashew chicken bowl and enjoyed it.

I was actually excited based on reviews yet I was very disappointed. The location and view were great but the food based on cost and service were mediocre. The 4 of us spent around $130 on 4 specials and each was not terribly happy with food. The fish had little flavor and felt lacked some substance. Dishes did look great!... More

Two locals recommended this lovely local spot. Classic burger was great, Cajun Mahi mahi was thumbs up, teriyaki chicken bowl is what I should have ordered (my husband's choice). I ordered the tuna burger - it was well prepared, but a little dry for my tastes. While none of us ordered smoothies, they looked really good and must be popular... More

Stopped here for lunch, what a treat. Right on the beach so great to relax in the shade. Super friendly staff serving fresh fruit shakes and super freshly prepared food. Recommend the raw tuna and rice!
