Totally amazing experience. From the fresh cocktails (PassioNut & Talamanca Cocktail) to the food-coma inducing entrees (breadfruit gnocchi & Mix Seafood pasta), everything was delicious, rich, creamy and flavourful. Definitely one of the top 2 meals we had while in Puerto Viejo for the week....More

The food was pretty good (little pricey, but that's Costa Rica) but when the cocktails arrived they were amazing! The guy preparing them kindly gave us one extra at the end of the night.
