The food is very good at this restaurant. I especially like their fish with caper sauce. Great for families. Reasonably priced. The owner, Berta, is fabulous.

Always welcoming, Las Delicias has great Tico food for a great price. Berta serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Never had a bad meal here and my favorite is the chicken casado. We also stop for the cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls weekly.

We ate here on three different occasions while on a week's stay in Costa Rica. The food was outstanding every time. But the service and the laughs that we had were just as good. Berta, Shindy and everyone were great.
