I stoped at this place for breakfast. Costa Rican breakfast was good but it could be better. The waitress was totally unatentive. The best is the fresh bread they have every morning. I recommend the banana bread.

This restaurant is a great value - prices are very reasonable, the food is fresh, the kitchen and restaurant clean, and they even sell baked goods (get the pineapple upside-down cake!). The upstairs dining area offers a view of the bay.

We came here for lunch. The menu is varied and the prices reasonable for Drake Bay. The ambiance is pretty basic, service so-so and the food just okay. There are better places to eat in town.

I have eaten here. Breakfast. Lunch and dinner or just a refreshing drink on many occasions over the past 5 years while in the area each winter. The food is always good, moderately priced, although they automatically add 10% service to your tab. The staff...More
