We did not know where to go and asked for local food. They sent us to this place and it was a really great experience. We had the Casado and enjoy a full meal for about 8$ each. Totally recommend

Really tasty authentic food. This is the best food we had in La Fortuna. We had dinner one and night and went back for lunch the next day. Great friendly service and menus with English.

We read about this soda in a blog, and went there to try some Costa Rican food. We were not disapointed. The food is great and the waitresses are super kind and helpful.

I'm not sure, but I had dinner there late one night, around 9:30 pm and they where still open. And they also serve breakfast. So my guess would be all day every day
