As you enter you are happy that they have extra large air-conditioning sistem in place. The place is large and it is a family owned restaurant, I would say mostly chinese food. Prices are good, shrimp is always perfect, opens late

I hate to say it, but it was probably on of the worst meals during a two week trip to Costa Rica. We got take out, and the mushy vegetables and sauce were put in the same container as the rice, which ended up being one mushy mess. I have never seen everything piled on top of each other for...

We arrived at the end of the lunch rush. There was only the one table available out of the some thirty or so tables. Most appear to be locals, which for us is a good indication. We ordered what we usually order at other Chinese restaurants, shrimp rice and sweet and sour chicken. The rice was fine. The sweet and... More

Typical take-out style Chinese food but good for a quick lunch or dinner. Excellent service and pleasant staff, but the restaurant can be noisy during dinner hours as it's really popular with locals.

Good restaurant with a nice atmosphere, doesn't look like a college cafeteria :^), it also has a parking lot, so you don't need to worry about looking for a spot for your car. Food is good, calamari and shrimps were VERY good. Very reasonable prices. It's located a few blocks from the center.

The food here is decent, but a little over-priced. The menu has a mix of Chinese and Costa Rica typical food both of which can be found elsewhere for cheaper. The biggest turn-off for me was the atmosphere. The restaurant consists of one big brightly-lit room. It's over-whelming when it is busy, and awkward when it's slow. It does have... More

Yes, you will find many Chinese restaurants in Costa Rica and in Liberia it seems as though they're on every block. Cuatro Mares stands apart for their food, atmosphere and service. Very generous portions of everything, nice menu selection and busy, busy, busy every time we've been there. It's a great break from the heat of Liberia with its A/C--hard... More

Really interesting food. We ate great cevice, red snapper, rice with shrimp and rice with seafood. The prices are fair, the restaurant looks clean and well maintained.
