Fodor's Costa Rica 2014
Upstairs@the Ripjack Review
A block from the beach, this casual place usually has an ocean breeze to complement the ceiling fans, which are best enjoyed from the hammock in the corner. There are rooms for rent downstairs, but most people come to eat, or party at the long bar, which occupies about a third of the restaurant. In high season, sushi is the star of the show here, with a dedicated sushi chef. On the seafood side, you can also count on ceviche, calamari, and fish fillets spiced, Asian-style, with wasabi and ginger. Meat and potatoes are represented by flank steak served with mashed potatoes. Prices are on the high side, and service is patchy, especially in low season. The lunch menu tends to be small and overpriced, so save your appetite for brownies and ice cream. There's free Wi-Fi.
