Restaurant Menus Around Puerto Armuelles

I have started a collection of menus from as many of the restaurants as possible around Puerto Armuelles, and including Paso Canoas to Punta Burica. Of course, menus do change over time. I will do my best to update them, but please use these as a “guide” to the type of food served and general prices. They are not in any particular order.

You will notice that many of the menus are simply written on a whiteboard or painted on a wall. Some local “fondas” may have a menu posted, but it is best to ask “what do you have today” because there are often only one or two choices for the day. This post will still give you an idea of the type of food served and general prices.

Restaurant Titles that are BLUE will have a link to more information and a review, so please click on them to learn more. Enjoy!

Feel free to snap a menu photo the next time you eat out and send it to me at:

    Great Idea!!! Thank you! Would it be possible to put these on a map??? Or would it be possible to take a photo of each Restaurant so we can recognize it?

      Most of the menus have a REVIEW connected to it. If you click on the name of the restaurant, it will take you to the page with details and a map 🙂 Glad you like this new feature!

    Do they have places that cater yo a vegan/vegetarian diet?

      “Vegetarian” is a fairly new term to Puerto Armuelles. There are a couple of restaurants that are familiar and can provide dishes that work, like Big Daddy’s Beach Bar and Restaurante Don Carlos. Otherwise, you’ll have to make due by eating what you can on a plate.
