Food was good but pricey for what you get. Service was terrible! Had a waiter who was so unconcerned with us that at one point, after trying to get his attention to refill our drink orders, he looked straight at us and then just walked away to stand at the other corner of the restaurant looking out at the beach. We ended up just walking to the bar to reorder sodas and have a refill of water.

The food was delicious but also the most expensive meal we have had our entire trip! Mind you, there were just 2 of us and we ordered an appetizer, 2 entrees and 2 drinks each. Total came out to around $65. The waiter also added a beer (which we never ordered) to the check and I had to agrue to have it removed.

There are plenty of great places to eat in the area with better prices and much more attentive sevice. Best to skip El Sol and look around elsewhere.

Dinner was good, but the view was better. We loved sitting looking out over the street and the beach. Pineapple frozen drinks are great.

Loved the Mahi Mahi - cooked to perfection. Onion rings were also excellent. Good service. They get bringing ice in a glass for your soft drink. Loved this place. Might be best fish taco in CR. Rivals taco bar in Jaco
