Summary: Overall rating was 2.8 stars. OMG what makes this place a must do is the VIEW!!! The place is located between Manuel Antonio and Quepos. It is perched up on a cliff with an unobstructed view of the Pacific. The food was pretty decent. The Beet Salad was to die for from the taste to the presentation… Yes, I would make that 3 hour trip just for that salad. The Tico Salad was just okay the flavor was bland and the combination of textures unimpressive. Hubby had the Cerviche which he said was just okay. Note, this was a first time experience for him. He was expecting a lot more flavor and not as watery. The service was slow especially when you consider we were the only folks there.
This place is definitely worth another look if nothing more than for the view. We will try and check it out again when there is live music.
