Sunset Grille is a new restaurant in Samara offering a variety of meat dishes grilled over a wood fire. Ted Jackson and Vinnie Graves opened the business at the far corner of the soccer field (200 meters south of Banco de Costa Rica) with the idea of offering high quality meat and good, fast service.
They are open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with prices between 3,500 and 5,000 colones ($7-10). They offer sandwiches made on homemade bread, baskets of chicken wings, chicken fingers, fish or shrimp. For side dishes, choices are French fries, baked potato, cabbage salad and onion rings. Happy hour is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., and at 6 p.m. they start to serve dinner.
For dinner, tables are adorned with white cloths and they offer high-quality cuts of Wilson Brangus beef imported from the United States. All of the steaks are served with baked potato, sour cream and chives. They also offer sea food based on the catch of the day– usually mahi mahi or tuna.
If you ask for the house recommendation, Jackson will tell you to try the rib eye (14,500 colones or $29) and guarantees that it is tender, juicy and of the highest quality. It is seasoned with a special house mix of herbs and spices.
They also have an appetizer menu and a wine list, as well as liquor and domestic or imported beer. Hours: Open every day from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Telephone: 2656-3337.
