In our drive down the coast we were looking for a place to stop for lunch with a view of the ocean. Found this place via TripAdvisor and all the positive reviews were spot on. The food was prepared by a true chef, and the drinks were perfect. I recommended the tuna tartare and the tuna entree. The view,atmosphere, food... More

We come to CR often and always come here several times each trip. The service is great and they love playing with our daughter. Food is top notch and the view is killer. Can't wait to be back in a month, this will be our first stop for breakfast.

We were directed to this apparent hole in the wall place en route to Manuel Antonio Park. We loved the food (rice with seafood, shrimp and chicken + a cheese burger for our son). And the view of the ocean made it all taste even better.

Right on the beach in Playa Hermosa. You can check the surf while you are grabbing some food. I had their ceviche and a smoothie, both were good. Staff was friendly, wasn't too expensive.

I love this place so much that I am having trouble trying anything else. It is solidly pura vida. You feel the warmth and joy of the staff from the moment you enter. Go to backyard for beer and surf watching but eat here. Way better and much cheaper too plus fast wifi. Perfecto!

During our week-long stay at Playa Hermosa, we ate at Vista Hermosa four times! The service is friendly, the view of the ocean is incredible, and they have great food! I really enjoyed their Tuna Poki, their smoothies, and any rice dishes. Highly recommend!

A couple of words just to comply with the requirements. The place is not bad, the bathrooms are something disgusting the urine smell is disturbing. The food is not good and the portions were small, the fresh fruit smoothies weren't fresh at all.... We had a bad time and on top of that, THEY CHARGE ME TWICE THE PRICE!!!! So... More
