Be prepared for an exciting drive up a mountain road to get to this place. Once there it is worth it. There is live music, and a cool pirate theme going on. The burgers are huge. My friend had pizza and loved it. Some different topping to choose from. Guys had bloody Mary's and loved them. There were four of... More

Had a great meal. Wings are great. Wife had very good pizza - they have some unique toppings for their pizzas. The night we were there they had a live band - Jamisum- which was really good. Prices a little high, but I really liked the place. View is great, as the drive up the mountain to get the the... More

We were tired of the typical Costa Rican plate and tried out Jolly Roger. Guys ordered burgers and girls wings. The burgers were HUGE. The wings were so good. I had spicy maple brown sugar and they had just a hint of heat. We loved the outdoor atmosphere with view of ocean if it had been light out. Great music!... More

Was a fun spot to drink beers and eat wings. Wings were wonderful. I love that they have live music everyday. We are planning on return. If you are around the area definitely pop in for a bite to eat.

Not sure if it's the relief we actually made it up the mountain, but these were some of the best burgers I've eaten. We also had a pizza and it was really good as well (proper thin crust, fresh ingredients). Awesome environment, great views and friendly stuff complement the picture. My 5y old had fun too, coloring super heroes and... More

Warning 4x4 recommended. This hidden restaurant is has 27 kinds of burgers, and chicken wings that are excellent. OK, so in typical fashion service is on the slow side, it has excellent drinks and ocean views. You don't come to Costa Rica for speed and efficiency. I know, I am a Tico. If you stay at Villas Alturas, this place... More

The Big Ralph won. Burger, cheese, cream cheese, avocado, bacon, egg, onion rings and a side of fries. The burger was delicious. Great staff and an awesome view! Apparently the toucans come every night before sunset. Great place

We ate here numerous time during our stay in Escaleras. The food was fine ~ typical Gringo fare, but more often than not, the staff couldn't remember what we had ordered, lost our order, or gave us an incorrect bill.
