We tried this as we were not impressed with the food next door at Aqua Dolce. The food was good and Gabrielle was an outstanding server.

We stayed at Iguana for 5 days so tended to eat here for lunch or snacks when it was suitable based on what we had planned in the day. Great Nachos and really well prepared fresh food. Really good Chimichurri and Guacamole. The only downside was the prices but it was on a resort so no suprise really!

We ate lunch daily at the Pearl while staying at Iguana Lodge. They are on the same property. The food is well prepared, drinks are delicious, and staff is genial and efficient. Ping pong available. Walk to the beach. Salsa dancing on Friday nights.

A great lunch spot for snacks and excellent margaritas. We only ate lunch here so I can't speak to the dinner offerings. The food was tasty -- especially the salads -- and the drink specials were delicious. Beautiful ocean view.

We dined and enjoyed cocktails at the Pearl several times while renting a home nearby. The foot was incredible with moderate prices and a spectacular view.

We ate dinner here and it was very good. There were no overhead fans, so it was very hot and sticky.. Admittedly, we were there in the hot and dry season, but fans would have helped. I'd recommend it anyway.

We stopped here for dinner one night while we were staying in Puerto Jimenez. You cannot beat the view from this restaurant! We ordered a pitcher of the sangria, nachos (so good!), fajitas (good!), and the enchiladas! All were great, and the service was excellent! Very friendly staff. Would highly recommend.
