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 and continued to amazingly fresh and deliciously cooked food (snapper, shrimp, chicken, rice, etc.), conversation...

Jiuberth ("Hubert", in English) and his wife are long-time resident of the Quepos coast. He got started in his business because he was an avid fisherman and amateur chef; when he would come back from the sea, or the river, and crank up his grill, throngs of neighbors -- attracted by the irresistible aromas -- would come to beg, borrow...

We went here for Valentines day. The sign that we saw was a hand painted, nailed to a power post with an arrow showing the direction.:) When we drove up it didn't look like much on the outside......but we love these kind of restaurants because they always serve great food! We were not disappointed. As you walk in, it is... More

We held a Birthday celebration here in February. They had such a wide selection of seafood that they displayed to us in the kitchen to choose what we would like. We also brought Tuna for sashimi and tuna steaks which they prepared along with the giant shrimp he had and Lobster tails

When you get there they will take you into the kitchen to show you the fresh seafood and give you a sample. I'm not really into seafood but they make it taste really really good. The prices are more than you'd expect from a local restaurant like this but the quality is amazing.

Given the remote location and the difficulty to find, you arrive with high expectations. The food is good and fresh but not exceptional. Dinner for 4 with a bottle of wine (the only white wine available) was nearly US$90. The directions in Lonely Planet are not accurate or helpful. We also found true what is frequently said that locals dearly... More

Excellent mariscada in garlic sauce. However it is much smaller in size than what is offered for the same price at other marisquerias. The restaurant itself is lovely with very nice owners.

Place is tucked away in a small neighborhood 3 minutes from town off the road going from Quepos to Costanerra, easy to get too. Food was rich and well prepared. Try the mixed ceviche and the Mariscada, can't miss. Family run, very nice people.

This place was so good we came here twice. It certainly isn't a cheap place which you might expect when you arrive but the seafood is so fresh and good. The mariscada was out of the world and the staff are very friendly

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.
