Situated on the water actually overhanging the water at high tide this restaurant has wonderful ambiance. It is a place where you go to dine, not just eat. The menu has a grand array of choices, not just sea food. We chose a platter for two which included a very large portion of several types of sea food as well as some complementary starch and dip dishes.
Villas De Oros - DRIVING? If you are driving and don't want to stay in Golfito, Ojochal is on the way from San Jose. Just a short drive from Uvita and about 1 1/2 hours from Golfito, it is a very nice small hotel located right on the highway. Rooms are spacious with a small kitchen and cooking area. Don't want to cook? Several good restaurants close by.

We were told by the locals of a good place to get "pescado entero" (a full fish-fried whole) and this was definitely good advice! They said the fish were "small" so they gave us two for the price of one...way more than we could eat! The ambiance was very nice, the service friendly and the prices and food both good. Would definitely recommend it and I'd definitely go back to try something else on the menu! The only issue we had, which is obviously not the restaurants fault, is we got eaten alive by mosquitos (through our clothes even). They're obviously aware of it as they lit mosquito coils all around us...very nice of them to do that. :-)
