We were disappointed to find that this place only serves breakfast and lunch. Pretty ordinary breakfast and lunch, too.

Good local Costa Rican cuisine with a very relaxed atmosphere. Cash only they will take USD or Colones for payment but no credit cards.

The Patacones are amazing. It is a simple dish, but they nailed it. We also enjoyed the Pina colada, shrimp rice and fish tacos. Definitely worth a visit if you are staying in the area.

Fair pricing and great food! We ate a few nights while staying at the condos there and everything we got was great. Prices are on par with casual dining in the US.

Who would have thought that this intimate hideaway, not on the beach, but in a courtyard behind the Playa Junquillal Welcome Center would offer some of the freshest food we have tasted during our travels through Costa Rica. The new owner, Garrett is not only a friendly outgoing ex-pat from California, but he is a darn good chef as well. Everything is made from scratch, at the time of ordering, using only local ingredients and freshly caught seafood. He offers a simple well thought out menu, as well as "Happy Hour" specials. The Margaritas are hand squeezed with local limes,lemons and oranges.
