Really good food for a reasonable price. We had the cevice, rice beans and chicken and my kids had fries with meat sauce. Everything was delicious!

We stopped here, having just dipped our feet in the water at some nearby beach and were on the way to Monteverde. Realizing we were hungry, we pulled into this little roadside place. Little did we know, that it would be the best food of the trip this far. I had the Arroz con Pollo and my friend had Casado... More

We went here after a tip from our hostess. Linda and here husband are so sweet and welcoming! Dinner was good for a low price. Got a special vegetarian dish made for me with extra veggies.

We were traveling with another couple (locals) and stopped here on our way to Monteverde. It was fantastic! Portions are plentiful, service is great and the food, while simple, is very tasty. I had the hearts of palm salad and it was the best that I have ever had. A true local experience of Costa Rica - loved it!

We stopped on our way back from Monte Verde. This may be the last quite place before you get to the Pan American Hwy so you should consider it if before the 2 hour drive to San Jose. We were the only diners at about 6:00 pm so we were a little weary. I ordered the Cosada pot roast ($6)... More

Our van driver stopped here for us to have dinner on our way back to San Jose airport from Monteverde. We weren't sure what to expect (I think we might have been the only diners there) but it worked out well. Two of us had the rice dishes, one had the fish, one had the breaded chicken and one had...

We stopped here on our way to Monteverde and then again on the way back. We tried casado with beef, the chicken sandwich, and a cheeseburger. The casado was yummy! We were also pleasantly surprised by the tastiness of the sandwich and cheeseburger and they were only about $3 each. Super cheap! A great little place to catch a very... More
