Great food and drink while watching the action at the beach! What more could you ask for? The Sangrias flowed freely and the price was right!

This is the best restaurant on that strip. The staff is so nice and friendly the moment you walk in. The atmosphere is relaxed and beachy. They have so many options for food, they have traditional Costa Rican food, they have salads, pastas, fish and seafood dishes they truly have a little bit of everything here. Not to mention they...

We came here for some snacks to share and had some pretty good onion rings, caprese salad, and nachos. However, the highlight was the passion fruit smoothie. It was so good that my husband ordered one and he normally only drinks beer. Unfortunately, it never came, which is why I'm not giving the restaurant full marks.

We had dinner here with the family. While the restaurant building is not ideal (upstairs and somewhat hot), everything is ideal. The food is great and the sizes are very big. Staff is super friendly and solution oriented in case of food allergies. Very good vibe to the place.

We loved Ed Sol. They were very welcoming, and always tried to please. They have an upper deck that we wanted to go to for sunset. They did not have servers up there, but they allowed us to get our drinks and go sit up there any way. The food in the restaurant was delicious. We enjoyed the fish tacos... More

The food was ok and the prices like normal. The view is of course very nice to the beach and we were lucky to spot a sloth crossing the road.

Came here for breakfast since my hotel breakfast wasn't included. Glad I did! It was cheaper and so much better! Steak and eggs and rosemary potatoes were perfect with a view of the beach! I'm coming back tomorrow!!
