October 4, 2019 Jacquiline Darosa

Reviews on Spanish food in Drake Bay, Province of Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Legend has it that notorious pirate Sir Francis Drake hid his treasures somewhere in Drake Bay, hence the name. Doubloons or not, there are plenty of natural treasures to marvel over, like lush rainforests and colorful sea life. Invest in a guided hiking, diving, fishing, tubing or treetop canopy tour to get the full Drake Bay experience. “Tracie the Bug Lady” even offers a night tour to acquaint you with all of the local creepy crawlies.

Claudios Grill

Claudio'S Grill es un restaurante que está entregado a complace los gustos exigentes de nuestros clientes

Reviewed By Ryan W

After reading many rave reviews on TA I was prepared to have my high expectations disappointed. They were not. Claudio's Grill is not much to look at from the outside and the decor is the only thing I can think of to upgrade. Our waiter was extremely professional and attentive. The menu was packed with diverse temptations. My wife had the Caribbean chicken dish and I had the grilled pork ribs. Both were simply excellent. The flavors were varied and explosive and the meats were cooked to perfection and covered in unique sauces. This restaurant would be among the best in the city where I live (a city with a population twice that of all Costa Rica) but to find it in Drake Bay is quite incredible.

El Tipico

Reviewed By Katharina324

Highly recommended if you want a quiet place with a nice atmosphere and really good food. The menue is small but has everything you need from delicious Casado to Specials like fish in coconut sauce or chicken in mango sauce to a Spaghetti Bolognese that was fab! Really great!They serve homemade juice that they freshly produce from pineapple to mango that tastes really great. My husband even said it is the best he ever had!The chef and his wife are very friendly - so we came back night by night.Portions are big and prices more than fair!

Margarita's Marisqueria

Reviewed By CrazyBelgianGirl

We were in a hurry because we had a night tour waiting, but were served very quickly. We had half a bottle of wine left and it was our last evening, and they allowed to drink our own wine and brought us two glasses. We had very different dishes, shrimps and hamburger, but woth were really delicious, refined and enough! We were really happy about it! The hosts were really friendly. The restaurant was adviced by our tour guide as the one with the most fresh seafood. Prices were right.

We wanted to stay here but ended up booked further away. When we had trouble making contact the folks at Pura Vida helped us out with phone calls, local language skills, wi-fi, water, and everything else we needed to start our Costa Rican adenture.
