Ceviche is delicious, the food is fresh and tasty. The atmosphere is good. It is a kind of a fast food restaurant. Good that it is open until 22:00

Our party of six dined here a few weeks ago. We loved the selection of ceviche which is there specialty and between us tried all of them! (We thought the deep fried ceviche was a bit of a misnomer) but was delicious nonetheless. Try the fruit drinks -- they were excellent. Service was fast and very friendly. One of our... More

Food was fresh and tasty. Prices reasonable. The service went missing for a bit of time, but when our flamboyant waiter was around, he was great. The interior is brightly lit, sterile, and though not overly large, there is nothing intimate about this place. The staff allowed someone from the street selling glass cleaner to come in and pitch us.... More

Ordered passionfruit batido. Wonderful. Ordered the stuffed filet of fish with bits of calamari and shrimp, with sautéed onion and bell pepper in the white sauce. Delicious. I left a very happy customer. The reasonable prices here are what makes this place a top find for me.

Oh man. The ceviche mixto was amazing. Everything very fresh. We had fried fish balls as well with ali oli sauce. Excellent. If you want a high quality fish meal, at a good price, and don't mind tiny and crowded, this is the place for you. It's obviously a local favorite. One block from the town square.

The fish Ceviche was good. We enjoyed the local feel of the place. There was dancing happening on a sunday in the square in front of the place. IT was a brilliant way to bid farewell to a wonderful costa rican adventure

Veggies were fresh, ceviche was good, taco plate was really more of a taquito in a salad, but we loved it and went twice. Good smoothies, fresh fish. good for a quick and tasty meal, at good prices.

We had ceviche here and both of us thought the shrimp very over cooked and the dish was without flavor. I wouldn't come back here as it was a disappointment. Ratings on this place were misleading.

We ate here last year and loved the food, but this year it seemed a little bland and average. I had one of the ceviches, and my son had a fish soup. They were super busy, so perhaps that had something to do with it. They do have great batidos (smoothies) and the owner and his family are friendly and... More
