We ate at this restaurant a few times. The patacones and guacamole were delicious as well as their banana milkshake and cheap! The coconut rice and beans were also yummy.

Ricky's was recommended by the staff at our hotel, and it was fun. We went there every day we were in Cahuita. The bar is nothing special to look at. It's open to the street like nearly bar and restaurant in town, so you really get a feel for life in Cahuita. In fact, it's where the two main streets... More

Called in for drinks at Ricky's; great location in the centre of town.... the service seemed ok, drinks were ok... Then the trouble started. Our rucksack was stollen from next to our table at this bar. A local guy who was sitting at the bar inside (by the name of Chico), was almost certainly involved.... The tourist police were called...

The " cassado" with chicken consisted of a pile of plain white rice, a very small fresh salad with a tomato slice and a piece of delicious, falling off the bone chicken.

My husband and I liked this restaurant because although they offered typical food like many other places in the near by area, the owner Ricky (whom we met) lived many years in Coconut Grove in Miami.....and there is the difference, the food is adorned with a twist of sophistication....it made the food that much special!

We came here to try some seafood. We came at low season and they did not have all the meals from the menu.we wanted to try octopus but it was not available. We opted for calamari and fish in coconut sauce. Both meals were tasty and arrived quickly. Also we sampled local lager called imperial. It was also good.

Like the atmosphere at this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful with what to order as it all looked good. The food was good and tasty and soccer was on the tv so it was all set to be a good meal.
