On the beach, Tortilla Flats is the most happening spot, and its menu features decent fresh-fish dishes and a touch of fusion cuisine. Nearby, the Surf Shak ((tel) 2787-0026) serves up hearty breakfasts, smoothies, and lunch fare. For sushi, look no further than Dominical Sushi ((tel) 8826-7946) in the Rio Mar commercial center, while you’ll find tacos and burritos at Del Mar Taco Shop ((tel) 8428-9050), just off the beach. If you head a bit south of town, you can check out the restaurant at the Hotel Roca Verde, which is usually pretty good for grilled fish, steaks, and burgers.

Soda Nanyoa ((tel) 2787-0164) is a basic Tico restaurant on the main road, just down a bit from the soccer field, serving local food and fresh seafood at good prices.
