Cha Cha Cha: A Small Restaurant with Big Flavor

Cha cha cha

If you’re craving comfort food accompanied by a cozy candlelit vibe, Cha Cha Cha is your place.

After investing 7 years in Costa Rica managing the “The Time Out Tavern” sports bar, brothers Glenn and Steven Graham took a time out of their own. They traveled north in search of a new country, a new vibe and a new flavor.

Their eclectic menu spices up the restaurant options in San Juan del Sur.   You can’t go wrong with the house specialty known as the ‘Aztec Chicken’ – egg washed chicken breast sautéed with shrimp, rum, bacon, jalapeños, and avocado, in a savory cream sauce.  

Another local favorite is the ‘Korean Beef Tenderloin Medallions’ – marinated beef medallions with a Korean BBQ sauce. Vegetarian options include a three bean casserole in a spicy mustard and yogurt sauce and Thai pineapple stir fried rice; both for a mere 125 cordoba ($5).

If you are hankering for Fish-n-chips, you’ll love their Friday special.  The Graham brothers serve up their famous New Jersey style Fish-n-chips every Friday afternoon.

Whether you are looking for an ambient dining experience or company at the bar, head down to Cha Cha Cha where you can always count on good food and good people.
