BANANA & PECAN PANCAKES
For anyone with a diehard sweet tooth, the banana and pecan pancakes are the go-to option on the breakfast menu. The bananas and pecans are caramelized with authentic maple syrup, then covered in our own special batter to form three perfectly round, fluffy pancakes. Served with fresh cut fruit. Try it before adding syrup! Other options include traditional pancakes, apple almond pancakes, or cinnamon-raisin French toast.
Ceviche has its origins in Spanish Moorish cuisine which was assimilated into coastal Peruvian culture nearly 2,000 years ago and this delicate dish of fish and seafood has since permeated the entire Latin continent, albeit with different variations. In Costa Rica, the typical ceviche dish cures the meats in lime juice flavored with finely diced white onion, red bell peppers, salt and pepper, and fresh cilantro, and is served with crunchy corn tortilla chips. Locals add ketchup and/or mayonnaise for fuller body. Choose from the mixed ceviche shown here, or just sea bass or shrimp ceviche.

We had walked over to the Marina and needed something refreshing to drink. We had ice cold tea and a beautiful view of yachts and gorgeous ocean! The restaurant was very clean and our waiter was friendly. It was a lovely time to refresh and head back to our resort. The marina is also part of Los Suenos.
This informal place became our go-to bar/restaurant for happy hours and delicious early and late dinners. We were very surprised at the quality of the food in this popular marina hang out on night one; we ate there a total of 3 times in a week long visit. That was the most for us. Great burgers too and deep fried snapper. Everyone was happy. Generous pours on wine, too.
