Superior Mojito, excellent Margarita, perfect fresh grilled yellowfin tuna rare. Marvelous view. Wonderful staff, reasonable room prices $125-150. Rooftop pool! I'll be back.

We went for lunch and a little later than typical lunch hour. It was not super busy and our Service great. I think just calling when you arrive in CR will work. A day or two notice for the day you an to eat at establishment.
