We had been told that the Hotel Poseidon had the best burgers and Monday special for $6. But when we got there for dinner, that was only the lunch special. Having our taste buds set for burgers, we went next door to Papas and Burgers and had great burgers and fries. These are available every day. Good service, friendly atmosphere.

We stopped in here after a morning of strolling down the main strip and shopping a bit. Great friendly service, and some of the best fries I've had. We had to wait on our chicken tenders because they had run out of batter (but I enjoy knowing the chicken was hand battered) but they comped us some fries to make... More

Stopped for lunch on our way to Manuel Antonio. Had the Johnny Cash burger and the Picasso burger. The food came out quickly and the fries were amazing. The smoothies were very refreshing. Laid back place and great prices.

Great place to eat. Nice spot close to the beach. You need to try the Bansky burger. Is awesome, big and super delicious.

The service is great! Very friendly and amable! The food was delicious and unique! We got the Picasso burger and it was to die for with the avocado. The smoothies are also very refreshing.

After the end of a week long adventure, my husband was craving a burger. There are a few places that advertise for burgers only, but something stuck out about this place. I don't eat beef, so I was pleased to find several items that would make a delicious alternative (with the Da Vinci being one.) This was a great way... More

I can't say for the food because the food didn't arrive after waiting for more than 45 minutes. The girl over there waiting on us( blonde hair) couldn't even let us know how long will our food take she just said it takes long .. It was not just us but 3 tables around us were in the same situation.... More
