We loved our shrimp burgers, fries, and pineapple/mint smoothies. Nice atmosphere overlooking the water on the bay side. Great service, too. Find it on Av. 3 between Calles 3 and 7, but be advised it's only open between 11 and 3.

We had a great lunch at this small restaurant, overlooking the bay and luckily with air conditioning (quite warm outside today). Had ordered the shrimp burger and this choice was far from disappointing. Would recommend it to every one and hope to be able to make it myself as tasty at home.

I have eaten here twice, both times it was a great experience. The dining area overlooks the bay opposite the ocean side of Puntarenas, a very nice view. The area is air conditioned, service was great, bathrooms clean, and I would definately order the SHRIMP BURGER again!!
