We had lunch here. The cheese burger was tasteless and my wife's octopus was really bad. No imagination, no effort to make good food (it's not that difficult), no ambiance, no energy. Just plain bad. The service was good.

If you were looking for a place with a good view of the main street of Puerto Viejo for some drinks, this is the place. It has a second floor with a balcony like for you to seat and look out.

This was the best place to eat in Puerto Viejo, the flavor of the Rice and Beans, was by far better than Maxi's in Manzanillo, the coconut flavor was stronger and the Agua de Sapo was very good as well.
