Nice service and nice food. One of the cleaner places in Puerto viejo. Staff friendly and the goodbye shot was delicious but I forgot to ask what it was

The Sushi and the caribbean Food were tasty and not as expensive. But the Burger was awful. The Service was okay. Before the meal you will get cripst.

I will start by saying I gave 2 stars based on my interaction with the waitress. She was friendly, quick and happy to help. The problem was their false advertising.

The place is very nice and the food is cheap and great. They have cheap cocktails (1,100 colones each) and pasta days "all u can eat" with a complimentary ice tea. Highly recommended!

I've been there on both my trips to the area. Good food, plentiful portions, specials, good service, fair prices. They are centrally located across from the farmer's market.

We went twice to this place which is in a quiet side street. Good curries including vegetarian, good pasta, the service is nice, and the place is decorated with... flip-flops of course.
