We went early, and really enjoyed the chicken tacos and the fish tacos equally. The surprising standout was the shrimp tacos. They were so good we ordered more. Definitely try the local soft drink - it was very special, and we didn't see it anywhere...More

Fresh and simple, good shrimps and fish tacos. No beer but good local soft drink. Very nice service (from the owner?)

A Chicken Joe that's empty for chicken?!? :D They have lots of other good options as well! The veggie-taco is really good! And if they don't have more wine left - bring your own :) Good atmosphere!

I had the best homemade lemonade I ever had here but the food was just ok.... fish tacos tasted way to fishy and the chicken was tender but not super flavorful.... service was super slow but then again it’s Costa Rica!!!

The food is amazing and the staff very nice. We went for lunch. The food was so good, that we came back for dinner. We had several Veggie Tacos. The best Fish Ceviche (peruvian style) ever and a great beef dish (Lomo Saltado). Congratulation!

Great place to eat fresh food and excellent craft beers. Bit expensive for what you get but worth it. Average setting on main road. Owner and staff very nice.
