Lots of locals and tourists recommended this restaurant to us. We were happy we stopped in. I had the sea bass with carribean sauce and it was delicious. Food is made to order and the offerings depend on the recent catch, so be a bit flexible and they will try to ensure you have a lovely meal. We traveled in Sept. and do note they are only open Thurs, Fri., Sat. at that time. My boyfriend had the chicken in a special sauce and really enjoyed it as well.

Food was great and 'though it took a while to eat it was worthwhile!!! The ambience resembles Caribbean and the music was great. We totally recommend this place. Make sure you ask pollo caribeño and margarita

We visited here in August of 2016. We heard about the Rondon here. We ordered it and absolutely loved it!!!! It is beautiful here. Located off of the road. It is open and quaint and cozy. The staff was excellent, friendly and very helpful!!! The Chocolate Labrador dog, Gema, was very nice too!!! The prices are very affordable!!! We will definitely eat here again!!!

Crafted by Selvin Brown himself from local hardwoods, this is a gorgeous restaurant popular with Ticos and visitors alike.

The Rondon is superb and he serves the best Pollo Caribbeno on this coast. The grilled tuna, ordered slightly seared and of sushi-quality raw in the middle, blew my socks off (okay blew my flip flops off). Service isn't as slow as I have read and there is live music Friday nights. If you're really, really lucky, you'll get to meet Selvin himself and his lovely wife, Blanca.

If you visit this coast without eating at Selvin's, your trip will not have been complete. Bien provecho y pura vida!

My husband ordered the Rondon. OK, flavor good. Some fish but mostly filled with small crab claws that should have been used only for flavor and not for filler! Basically a broth for $15-
