The port town of Golfito (literally 'little gulf') is located in Puntarenas Province on the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, near the border of Panama. The town lies on a narrow strip of land between the eponymous bay and a hill and consist of two parts, the town proper and shopping area to the south, and a residential area near the port. Still further north are the duty-free zone and an airstrip.
Sailed in and did a water landing to have a late lunch. The grounds include cabins for rent and next to Golfito Wildlife Refuge. They offer a great variety of options but opted for the grilled fish and plantains. Both were made fresh to order. Others in my party ordered arroz con pollo / shrimp. Everything tasted amazing. Their portions are large so you won't go away hungry. Don't look for a quick turnaround time, it took some time to prepare. Take the time to enjoy an ice cold beer and stroll the beach while waiting to eat. The people working the restaurant are very friendly. Would definitely go back.
Buenos Dias is the perfect meeting place in the center of town. They feature a large variety of international fare including breakfast, lunch, dinner & sweet treats  - Consistently well prepared.  Hamburgers to pasta and full plate meals. Refreshing snack concoctions include, a Nutella Shake, Chocolate Milano Cappuccino, or their Ginger-Mint-Lemon Smoothie! Bright and modern atmosphere complete with air conditioning.

Soda El Muellecito is a perpetual local favorite where the ferry boats to Puerto Jimenez pull in and taxi boats for hire come and go daily.

A central stopover for a quick coffee with home-style Costa Rican typical foods prepared exactly as a 'Tico Mama' would.   Breakfast and Lunch.
