Unfortunately, my vegetables tasted like fish even though it said vegetarian on the menu and I confirmed with the waitress before ordering. So, I didn't eat much. However the drinks are good and it's a nice place to sit and watch the sun set. My non-vegetarian partner enjoyed his meal, but also said his broccoli tasted of fish.

Well, we first ordered appetizers, and they were huge. Very good too. We got 2 appetizers (2 couples) and that was almost enough to fill us. The entrees were... More

We enjoyed a great seafood meal while enjoying the activity looking out over the street. Server Laura was wonderful and took great care of us. Our dinner was highlighted by an appearance from a resident sloth who traveled over the ceiling while patrons took photos

We stopped here to start our first night out in Puerto Viejo, and ordered the carafe of Sangria. Not only was it probably the best Sangria I have ever had, but the ambiance of the bar mixed with the ocean air and energy of the town made for a great start to the night. Not to mention their giant weaved... More

Great atmosphere, food, drinks and staff. Had a delightful evening! Highly recommend ! Sloths live in the tree inside the restaurant, so we were able to see some wildlife too!
