This was by far the best tenderloin I have had in Costa Rica and they had so really great live music going on. Great environment right on the beach. You can't go wrong with this.

Perfect stop for an ice cold imperial by the sea. We stopped for a quick drink, took in the lovely sunset and watched a local performing a dance and balance routine on tightrope between the trees. The service was warm and laid back. Nice place...More
