We stopped at Zi thinking we could get a quick meal before heading back to our condo for the night. The service was quite slow. Our server checked on us twice in the first few minutes after sitting down, but after telling her we still needed time to review the menu we didn’t see her again for probably 10-15 minutes. I ordered fajitas, but that’s not what I received. I’m not exactly sure what it was, but ate it because by the time it came we were anxious to finish & leave. My husband said his meal was good. Hello tkecincy,Let me apologize for your recent experience at Zi Lounge. It appears our salonera stopped by a couple of times to take your order but you were not ready. It is always a balance to determine when to come back to someone's table once they state that they need more time. We will review with the staff to check back a bit sooner. I have sent you a request to find out more information on your meal. We do have supervisors on the floor for this reason. If you did not get what you order please let the salonera or supervisor know so we can rectify the issue immediately. If you do not give the restaurant a chance to either replace the meal or even comp it then we both failed. It is our policy to rectify all issues in this way. If you are still in the area please stop back in and we will comp you a fajita plate. Our customers and their experience are our #1 priority.Gracias

We had an amazing dinner on our last night in Costa Rica. Chef Luis prepared a delicious and original pasta dish with the fresh Yellowfin Tuna our group caught earlier that day. The skirt steak on the sea salt block was also tender and flavorful. The service was impeccable. Only wish we had known about this gem earlier on our trip. Would definitely recommend. Best dinner in Costa Rica.

Reviewed By MoriartyParadise

The food is absolutely superb, and complemented with a highly attentive staff, a cozy and intimate ambiance, and a jaw-dropping view, makes this unique hidden gem one of the best restaurants in the country! Everything’s fresh, immaculately prepared, and beautifully presented. For lunch, you just can’t go wrong with their nachos, fish tacos, ahi tuna salad, or steak sandwich. And for dinner, make sure to get there early to watch the sunset over a couple of cocktails, and then enjoy their caribbean style seafood soup starter, followed by one of their freshly caught fish specialties. Highly recommended!Muchas gracias for sharing so many excellent recommendations of our dishes. We really appreciate it and hope you will return soon! Pura vida!

We didn't actually dine in, but picked up some amazing mahi mahi steaks and jumbo prawns to bbq at our Air BnB. The quality was amazing, the price was right and the service was fantastic. We'd planned on a dinner stop one night, but after a long day at the beach, pulled the plug - very unfortunate, as it looked absolutely amazing! Definitely give this place a try when in town.
