Description: The Point...A different kind of Sports Bar.Sure we have sports on all (7) of our T.V's all the time...and sure we have hot wings and (U.S.D.A. beef) burgers...and sure we have ice cold beer and micro brew on tap, but did you know that we have local Caribbean cuisine made by the best chef south of Nicaragua?  Check out our open air restaurant/bar located on Black Beach, steps to the Caribbean Sea. A local hangout where tourists and locals come together to have a good ol' time.  So on your next visit to Puerto Viejo, top on by and say hi ya'll (before Paradise, we lived in New Orleans).  We will keep a seat warm, a cold beer, your favorite game on, and a fun time waiting for you!

“Great wings and a wonderful red snapper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

A great atmosphere to unwind at the end of the day after trekking through the jungle or tasting chocolate. We were fortunate enough to meet the owner and his family which are a wonderful group of people. I was pleasantly surprised to find he has his own micro-brew which was the first real beer I've tasted in Costa Rica. If you get a chance to stop in I'd highly recommend the red snapper, we will post a picture, its fresh off the boat and cooked in the traditional Carribean style with scales, head, and all.

Hey thanks so much for the kudos.. We appreciate it and of course thanks for the busines.. Love to hear the praises about our chefs specialty, the caribbean red snapper and of course will pass on the word to her. The micro beer we are serving is from our friends at the Costa Rica Craft Brewery... Say thanks to C.S. and the gang over there for choosing us as their bar of representation here in the Caribbean. Cheers to all.. How about another pint of Segua?

“Best Food on Caribbean side Costa Rica”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012

Spent another 5 days in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica and the best food we had was at The Point Sports Bar and Grill. The burgers are great and so are the salads! Good family atmosphere.

“Great food, friendly people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

If you're ever in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica stop in to this local sports bar for some of the best ceviche and hot wings! The service was great, the owner's wife was super friendly and helpful and the bartender Sean was very cool! They even have craft beers on tap, which was quite a pleasant surprise after drinking Pilsen and Imperial beer for weeks straight. Good prices and a very comfortable and friendly atmosphere. A must see if you're in that area!
