I'm not sure what the bad reviews are, this was one of our favs. The ceviche was so good and both of our fish dishes, Caribbean Style and chef special, were delicious! Service was great as well.

Caribbean food at its worst. I ordered an easy one "rice and beans with Caribbean style chicken" no flavor at all. The portions were good though. The kitchen is a little messy and it is open to the customers to see. Not going back.

My boyfriend and I have been several times and have had the red snapper, shrimp rice, patacones and fresh fruit smoothies and everything was very fresh and tasty. The service is friendly. We highly recommend.

This is a great spot to eat while in Cocles or nearby Puerto Viejo. It's up a side street and has a great vibe for a Topical Costa Rican restaurant. We had Ceviche and Consado Pollo both were very good.
