Amazing food! Try the Surf and Surf, and if it's on the menu, the Marlin ceviche is out of this world!

We happened upon this restaurant during their fantastic happy hour (2 for 1 drinks!) and stayed for dinner. The flavors of the food were incredible - we had the coconut shrimp, fresh sea bass, and the surf y surf (delicious lobster, tuna, and shrimp cocktails).

We are glad to have the opportunity to give a more accurate account of your visit.

The service and food are both to be commended. We started with Marlin Ceviche & Guacamole with chips. The ceviche was some of the best I've had. The guacamole was the way we love it too.... not mashed but wonderful chunks. The chips were also exceptional. We easily could have stopped here but our eyes were bigger than our tummies!... More

Great restaurant located at the hotel conchal. They have some great healthy options (I had a falafel wrap) and delicious batidos. The service was also very quick. At night, they also sometimes have great entertainment. The night I was this Kim tortuga was singing... amazing!

The food, staff, atmosphere was incredible - and topped off with a live acoustic musician. Couldn't have been a better experience!

I've been traveling in and around Costa Rica for a few years and this is the best veggie Casado I've had anywhere! The guacamole was incredible! Great pool for the kids, good service!

The upstairs dinning and bar is perhaps the most sophisticated for both meals and entertainment in Brasilito. Park on the road, then past the garden setting, and up the staircase.

I took the surf and surf and that was DELICIOUS! It's a bit more pricy but all worth it! That tuna on my plate was the best tuna I ever ate! Those ladies in the kitchen know how to cook!
