Close to our hotel the cheap prices drew us in. Beer was 1000 colones £1.50 food was from under £5 for a meal. Lovely cold bottled Imperial beer. Food never disappointed we ate here 5 nights we didn't go elsewhere. No need to dress up. Not a posh place. Friendly staff. Music playing. Please try it for value for money.

We didn't stay here but went there for dinner and got hooked. We had the next two meals there as well. He has the best breakfast (and cheapest) in town. Lots of food, ton of fruits and unlimited coffee. The owner is great. Very nice ambiance.

Great after a day of hiking at Manuel Antonio National Park. 2 dollar cervesa. My girlfriend had the Fish burger and I had the Tuna salad. Yummy. Oh and they have cheap Cerveas. There is also a hostel located here.

Friendly local bar come restaurant. Good basic home cooking at reasonable prices. Very clean. Had a backpackers hostel attached that also looked clean. Close to the main beach and the national reserve park.

The rooms are very basic (we stayed in a private room, which was just a double bed and a ceiling fan on the second floor) and the bathrooms are not for one who cares about privacy - there are just some swing doors to the toilet and there is no space to get changed by the showers. This did make...

We stayed opposite at the Cabinas Espadilla but dined and drank at Costa Linda for all the nights that we were there. Our group was attracked by the delicious sounding and decently priced cocktails and drinks and then ended up eating there as well. The food was delicious and fresh, huge portions. The cocktails were yummy. Food and drinks really...

We didn't sleep here but next door at the Hotel Vela Bar but as it didn't offer lunch or dinner we ate here several times. It's backpackers and so is very basic, offering decent meals and drinks. Much cheaper than the main street a short two minute walk away. We did take a look at the rooms; very basic singles,...

We didn’t stay at Costa Linda, but at Cabinas Espadilla right across the street. We were there for five nights and had dinner every day at the Costa Linda’s restaurant! We tried the plato tipico with fish, chicken and beef, the chicken fajitas, the hamburger, spaghetti carbonara and vegetarian spaghetti – all very good and very reasonably priced. The service...

My boyfriend and I came here not once, but TWICE in 2 days (once for dinner, once for lunch). We shared the carbonara pasta which was FANTASTIC and two margaritas (yummy ones!) and a 10% tip (10% had already been included), all for 22 bucks. Service was very friendly and attentive.
