Reasonably priced food and drinks in a fun atmosphere. Food quality was good. Would dine there again.

Wanted a quick lunch but although not busy waited half an hour for what turned out to be small portions of average food.

It wasn't a bad place, but for the price Arenal has better places to eat. The food was good, the atmosphere was nice, but the service was lousy. Again, I definitely wouldn't say it was bad, just a solid okay.
