I stoped at this place for breakfast. Costa Rican breakfast was good but it could be better. The waitress was totally unatentive. The best is the fresh bread they have every morning. I recommend the banana bread.

This restaurant is a great value - prices are very reasonable, the food is fresh, the kitchen and restaurant clean, and they even sell baked goods (get the pineapple upside-down cake!). The upstairs dining area offers a view of the bay.

Sit on the balcony and watch the fantastic sunset and enjoy their home cooked food! Great value and you get a lot of food!

We came here for lunch. The menu is varied and the prices reasonable for Drake Bay. The ambiance is pretty basic, service so-so and the food just okay. There are better places to eat in town.

We all liked this place very much. Very good, consistent. We went there a few times. Love the lady who usually works in the mornings- very sweet.

Referred to us by locals, we found that this restaurant was very slow in service. Although frequented by english speaking persons, the waitress appeared to understand absolutely no english and everything was done via pointing and hand signals. Mama did cook a good meal, but...More
