This was one of our favorite places to get Casado. The fish was so delicious! Cannot beat the view--it's right on the beach. Fun neighborhood dogs frequently came and hung out as well.. :)

All of our first choices were not yet open for the season, but the view at this place made up for it. The veggie casado was the best we had all week

Easy to find by walking down the Main Street in Samara till you get to the beach and then turn right, can't miss it. It has an easy natural feel to it. Popular with locals it has an authentic Tico air about it. Only open for breakfast and lunch. They serve local fare like beans and rice, casadas, fresh fruit,... More

Good food for our family. We had some burgers and casados with fish. The meals are a little more expensive than in a typical soda, but you're right on the beach so you pay a bit more for the view (see my photo).

We ate here several times - breakfast, lunch, and afternoon drink break. The location was great and it seemed more "real" that than other beach spots. Food was solidly tasty. Staff was fine, though as others have noted, not super friendly. It reminded me of German restaurants where service is direct and not overly attentive. Less "touristy" and low key.

We ate lunch twice here because it was easily accessible as we were lounging on the beach not far. The owner wasn't all that friendly. The fries were crispy and filling, smoothies weren't great. Casado was good! A bit too pricey for what you get.

We went to this cute little soda on the ocean every day for breakfast. It was nice to have something more authentic (and less touristy) and still be right on the beach with your toes in the sand. Staff didn't really speak English, so it was fun to practice Spanish! Everyone was very friendly and the food was great!
