Marlin Bill’s ((tel) 2682-0458) is a popular and massive open-air haunt on the hillside on the main road, just across from Café de Paris. You can expect to get good, fresh seafood and American classics here. La Dolce Vita ★★ ((tel) 2682-0107), on the outskirts of town on the road to Playa Sámara, serves up Italian fare nightly. Robin’s Ice Cream ★ ((tel) 2682-0617; makes homemade ice cream and also serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Finally, Go Juice ★ ((tel) 8682-4692) is a semi-permanent “food truck” dishing out fresh juices, iced coffee drinks, and tuna poke bowls. Their signature frozen banana coffee drink has won over more than a few skeptics. For local flavor, Doña Olga’s is a simple Costa Rican soda right on the beach in Playa Pelada. For sushi or just a good cocktail, there’s the restaurant at the Harmony Hotel & Spa ((tel) 2682-4114).
