Wide choice on the menu and super-friendly service from Wendy. Seafood rice loaded with fresh seafood and excellent mango batidos to drink. Pleasant setting although we were the only ones there.

Wendy was by far one of the nicest and best people I met in Costa Rica, she prepared us a drink that had mint in it, Wow! She was friendly and helpful along with the rest of the staff in the kitchen. Everyone was great :)
