So-so ceviche, but the pizza was really good, and prices are reasonable. The place has a lot of character, though the service was rather poor.

I stayed for one week at the BD hotel. The food is very delicious. The restaurant is kind of italian/mediteran and local food. The pastas are amazing. They have specials each time and the personal is very friendly. I loved staying at the BD Hotel.

This place says "Pura Vida"... a really nice atmosphere, inside or out, rustic and the food is good. We love the pizza, cooked outside in a brick oven - yummy.

When in Bahia Salinas, you must swing buy to Blue Dream for lunch or dinner. Pizza night and BBQ are some of our favorites. Italian flair meets great Costa Rican ingredients.

the chef is italian, i'm french ... obviously the title of my review is a neighbor-country joke i'm eating there since a few days (lodged in their hotel). the food is tasty, served in generous portions and there are quite some choices. indoor as outdoor areas are comfortable. service is friendly. what more would i want ?
