Not worth it

Had the veggie fried rice which was edible but nothing special. However I give the low rating because the service is terrible. They messed up my partner’s order, and the staff were spray painting their scooter under a meter away from where I was eating, emitting a harsh chemical odor into the food.

Pros: A couple vegan options on menu

Cons: Vegan items extremely basic, lacking flavor, Bad service

Bad service, good food

The head waiter did not check in on us at all or ask if we needed anything. We had to flag him down multiple times. The food was good but nothing special compared to restaurants right next door. An employee kept bothering us and cussing about the boss…. not going back. Would not recommend.

Pros: Easily veganized options, Reasonably priced

Cons: Disrespectful employees, Slow service

This place is fresh and good

The reviews of this place are wild. The house plate was delicious and fresh and not over seasoned.

Food was a bit sad

We ordered the fajitas and got some tasteless non roasted tortillas alongside some sautéed vegetables that seriously lacked in condiments.. and all of that for 5000 colones.

Pros: Close to the beach

Cons: Overpriced , Tasteless food

Too expensive for the quality of the food

The food is way too expensive for what you get. The rice plate was ok but still too expensive.
I recommend the mango juice.

Pros: Only vegan option at the beach.

Cons: Too expensive

One vegetarian option on the menu

a really bad experience. It's more of a bar than an eatery. Don't understand how this place ended up at HappyCow

Pros: , One vegetarian option !! - greek salad !

Cons: a very unengaged staff

Vegan options right by Playa Espadilla

Awesome little hang out

I ate here a few times. They have a few veg choices - they were good. It's also a fun place to hang out for drinks. The guys that work there are great and the other patrons were also fun to talk too. You really can't go wrong here

Pros: Staff, Fun, Food

Cons: None
