We ate here at least 4 times and enjoyed it very much. The service was friendly and the food really good. Even our children enjoyed it. We were here December 2015. Sorry it took so long to write a review.

Definitely would recommend this place to anyone wanting a nice dinner with a romantic view of the water. Definitely pricey but worth it for a nice dinner

Marlin Bill's is an unpretentious bar and restaurant that doesn't try to be anything other than a nice place to get a great meal with a killer view of the Pacific. At various times of the day you'll find locals mixed in with visitors in the restaurant or at the bar watching a game, and a couple of pets and local animal friends.
Bill's is not a Tico restaurant. Don't expect a lot of theme and branding. That's not what they're about. They have an eclectic menu of ribs, steaks, chicken, fish, pasta, burgers, salads and a cerviche that changes depending on what fresh seafood they have choosen for the day. Portions are generous and Bill has been lucky to find a chef that has been with him for 4 years and consistently delivers a satisfyingly delicious meal.
Bill always comes to our table to see how are doing and takes a genuine interest in ensuring we are happy with our meal. Don't be afraid to ask to customize your order. The staff has many times taken our request for something special.
We don't need rant about a place like Marlin Bill's, we just go back time after time because we've never disappointed.
