This was a great stop to OSA. The food was good and highly recommend to seafood soup...amazing. Don't let "hole in wall" appearance keep you away.

Just a short walk from the park entrance, this restaurant was a great place to cool down and fill up! Service was very friendly. Food was very yummy. Smoothies were so refreshing. No complaints!

It's a very casual and friendly place. They got fresh natural juices and smoothies and a small portions menu. Finally I don't have to pay for food that I am not going to eat anyway.

If you are looking for a fancy place this is not an option for you. This place is a humble, simple and relax place, it has exactly what you need. First is super close to the beach which makes it a very convenient choice, specially after a whales tour. The food is GREAT: tasty, well plated and you have a... More

Like the other reviewers, we came here after a Uvita 360 tour because of the proximity and because the tour guides recommended it. We were tired and did not want to go looking for somewhere else. We were not expecting much, but we were very pleasantly surprised, first by the attentiveness of the waiter, and then by the quality of... More

We went here after surfing lessons with Uvita 360, as it is right next store to the storefront for the surfing. We weren't sure what to expect but we really enjoyed it, so much that we ate there two more times. They made delicious whole fruit smoothies with any combination for 3 to 4 dollars. My family loved the either... More

Excellent if your diet is bottled beer. We were steered to this place by a local. Dinner was less than good. One mixed drink was sub par. I could not recommend this place in good faith. Sorry.

My husband and I went here after getting tired of the same food at our resort. We actually tried to go here a couple times and it was closed, but we finally got to go the night before we left Esterillo. It was about a 10-15 minute drive to almendros from Alma Del Pacifico in Esterillo. And we brought our... More

The restaurant looks much like all the others in Bahia/Uvita from the outside. It's all open air with the walls covered in squares of cut branches. The restaurant is right next door to the Uvita Surf School. It is run by Tito's (Uvita Surf School owner) mom and dad. His mom is an excellent cook and manages somehow to serve... More
