We loved the shrimp with garlic and the whole red snapper. We had shrimp at a "gourmet" restaurant heading into Manuel Antonio, paid a bundle and thought they were no where near as good as at MJ's. The whole fish was perfect. We would go...More

Authentic, family run, and full of charm. The owners took us into the kitchen as soon as we arrived to show us the fresh (really fresh) catch. The patio was open to the trees, and the kids spotted several animals while waiting. Best fish soup...More

This is off the beaten path, a funky restaurant that I think is part of the owner's home. We had a great lunch, good sized portions, fresh ingredients, well prepared. Yes, a Rooster walked through while we were there. When you want a more authentic...More

Not sure what the raving reviews all about. The food and the place itself is mediocre at best. There are many nicer places in Quepos.

We read many reviews that this place was the best for seafood. My husband did say that the cevice was the best he had ever had and enjoyed his meal but my daughter and I left our plates almost full due to not liking ours....More

Our taxi driver told us this was the best Marisqueria in Quepos area. He said 'simple but very good.'. It was OK and a probably would not go back.

When we arrived, little gem was devoid of other tourists. It was just me and my wife, and a few locals. The family and atmosphere are charming and the food was outstanding and very reasonably priced.

Good food and reasonable prices for the family. The ceviche when its not over salted, is great. Good service.

The location was easy to find with Waze, the restaurant has a very local feel and the owners are super friendly. The food was delicious. Even our picky kids liked their meals. Price was about $90 for 6 people.

My family and I (we have two little kids) came for lunch during the off-season of mid May so it was very quiet. Probably the most hospitable restaurant experience we've ever had which started with the capuchin monkeys we were introduced to outside the restaurant...More

Hi, they don't have A/C but they do have many ceiling fans. At noon, it can be really hot (as in many other places) so if it becomes uncomfortable try going there in the evening. About a kids menu, I didn't check... but I'm... More

Fisherman and family catch and cook fresh seafood daily. Very inexpensive yet clean, well portioned food with extra attention from owners. What you see on the platter is what is available today.
