Reggae Chill

Reviewed By tholamew

Was swimming on the adjacent beach with my girlfriend when we started walking down the road to a street food vendor we saw earlier. The lovely hostess of this establishment came out as wr passed and convinced us to come in as their food was great, the prices seemed reasonable and all their cocktails were 2 for 1 all day.We entered and sat at an empty table, and after a few minutes the lovely lady come over with menus, but told us all the available tables were taken apart from a floating bench (suspended from the roof) which was mostly taken up by a Buddha statue. We sat there for 5-10 minutes until she threw together some free beanbags and a small table for us.After sitting for about another 15 or so minutes, we were brought over our own menus. I might add at this stage that while the venue was full (approx 18 people), by no means was it busy. Orders were scarce and people mostly seemed to be waiting. A group of 6 who were sat a few minutes prior to us managed to order food and drinks, and have all of their cocktails made and delivered prior to us being able to order at all. Confused as to why multiple tables wouldnt be asked to place their orders at the same time to get the ball rolling.After being here over half an hour and being walked passed several times to go and talk to people walking past, we decided to leave. As we went to stand up the server quickly approached us and gave us a chance to order. Once again i cant fault the servers attitude, she is absolutely lovely, it just seems her priorities and time management are lacking. We ordered some passionfruit mojitos only to be included in the drink special, despite being told it was all cocktails.About another 15 minutes went by once again, when our drinks finally came out after a few other tables who had ordered after us. We later found out that two ladies who had already eaten had received our drinks by mistake, but said nothing of it and enjoyed their free drinks, shame on them for not speaking up and at least letting someone know about the mistake. Drinks were yummy though small and we weren't game to order another round and instead sipped on a water bottle we had in our bag.The server disappeared with her deadlocked dogs out of the restaurant for about 10 or so minutes and convinced another two couples to come in. After watching them wait for a long time to get menus then order, i almost made a joke about how long we'd been waiting to them, but decided against it. We were all in this together.After multiple bathroom breaks, ponderings about the canines long rear dreadlocks (twice the size of it's tail) and debates about whether to cancel our orders or not, our food arrived at 1.40pm, we walked in at midday. Another table who had arrived after we had finished our drinks apparently ordered the curry chicken, same as us, and recieved it the exact same time. I have no idea how this works, but i was too hungry to care.The food was nice, but by no means was it worth the hour forty wait we endured. We just wanted to eat and get on with our day since lunch took over two hours. We tallied the bill from the menu, 4500 for each meal (9000) plus 4000 for the two for one cocktails. We normally tip 15%, 10% if the meal was just okay, but at this stage we were pretty sure we were entitled to just cover our meal. We went to pay to find out our bill also included a 20% tax, plus we had been autograt'd a further 10%. So much for a reasonably priced meal. Skip this place, we went to Ghetto Girl (unsure on spelling) the night before and the food was better, bigger and the wait time was 20 mins tops.

This is a little bar and restaurant, tucked away, right next to the beach. They have wood burned pizza, and it's delicious! It takes a pretty long time to cook, so make sure you aren't starving by the time you get there :) They also have free pool in the back while you wait!

Hubby and I enjoyed dinner, and a take-out lunch, at Banana Azul in July when we rented a house nearby on Playa Negra Beach (reviewed separately) and it was recommended by the owners. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere, great food, friendly service, free wifi, and reasonable prices. It also had a (free) locked and fenced parking area. We had sandwiches for lunch and for dinner, I had lasagna and hubby had mahi mahi. Everything was delicious and we enjoyed our meals. We also enjoyed the soup and salad buffet at dinner. The total bill for dinner was about $50 and they accepted credit cards. The gardens are lovely and we returned during the day to walk through and enjoy the grounds more fully in the daylight. We enjoyed the koi pond that stretches the length of the dining area with its many fish and turtles. The garden had beautiful paths, plants, and trees. The beach area also looked beautiful, although we didn’t relax there. We recommend dining at Banana Azul and will return when we visit Puerto Viejo in the future!*Thank you for reading my review!

Hubby and I enjoyed lunch here one evening in late July. My chicken quesadilla and onion rings were delicious and hubby enjoyed his burger. The outdoor roadside seating had limited shade but indoor seating was also available. Parking was available nearby. Good service, slow-cooked food, reasonable prices ($30 range, no alcohol).

I have eaten here about once a week for almost two months while living in Puerto Viejo. The food is fantastic, and the fish in chips were particularly special. Fresh Caribbean fish helps . They also stock craft beers and the staff are really friendly and great. There is also live music here a couple of times a week. Pura vida

While traveling thru Costa Rica. I had to return to my favorite town of Puerto Viejo after 15 years. The food scene here has only gotten better but the prices are a bit more expensive than what I remembered. But my favorite place by far for breakfast and lunch was The Hangover. I actually just stumbled across this little gem while exploring the town. It’s one block off the main road. There menu is what drew me inside. The menu is fun, creative, affordable and delicious! The service and decor is warm and welcoming. I ended up eating here every afternoon while in PV. All the food here I tried was slamming and paired perfect with the sweet reggae tunes! Who ever opened this place knows what there doing and that’s coming from a person who’s been in the restaurant game for 20 years. Hope they make it because restaurant bizz tough. Definitely should give The Hangover a try while in Puerto Viejo!

Reviewed By bulldogtwo

Many places closed for lunch so we decided on this place for a quick lunch. I had the fish n chips, chips well done. Wife had the trio dip of salsa hummus and guacamole with corn chips and pita bread.Fish was OK, a bit mushy, frozen? chips spot on. Wife's dip were good but the corn chips were very stale. Pita bread was fresh though.Waiter was pleasant and friendly, forgot his name (Philly) but did a good job. He is why I gave 4 stars, otherwise it was just average.
