We went once with a large group (about 40 of us). Then again with 10 of us. the food was very good, service was friendly and accommodating and reasonably priced. We... More

This was a return visit. The same server works there, who still seems to have a rather slow speed. The menu is mostly typical Costa Rican fare, and they do it well. Fruit smoothies are a hit, fresh juice is a welcome treat. Don't expect speedy refills on coffee, but since you are on vacation you should try to wind... More

We went to Marie's twice for breakfast. A Chicken omelet with fresh pico de gallo and guacamole is a great way to start the day.

Order anything on the menu and you won't be disappointed. Best food in the area. I had the pork chops and they basically melted in my mouth.

Sitting at the bar was great. We went on a Thursday night because it was recommended by a local couple. "Live music". We arrived early so we sat at the bar. Great bartender, great drinks. But when our group arrived, we went to the table. The service was VERY slow - I think the waiter was not really a waiter;... More

Guacamole dip as appetizer unreal. Shrimp and rice is the best. Best we've had during travels. Music once a week. Portions for price excellent. Danny mixes an excellent margarita and is a super kind server. Marie is attentive and involved.

Fantastic place at all times of the day. The staff and owner have been there for years. Everyone was very helpful. Good was great and margaritas were even better! Love music on the patio is worth the price of dinner

We stayed at Flamingo Beach Resort, but ate here often - the burgers are good, the fish is fresh and my daughter loved the rice and beans so much she ordered them every time. Simple stuff, but service was good and the price reasonable.

Marie's occupies a distinctive location and tall presence on the Main Street. Look for the thatched 30 or so high roof. Best coffee in the region and fine for breakfast and lighter meals 7 days a week. Music most Thursday's and Saturday.
