The Caribbean chicken was fantastic (lightly fried coconut chicken) and the volcano view on a clear day is wonderful. I watched a horse grazing in a pasture during my meal. Lovely ambience. Our server spoke English very well...while not expected, it's always appreciated!

Nice food at the restaurant with an amazing panoramic view of the Volcan. Nice lounge with a pool table and a bar to hang. Pool restaurant is also awesome with a pool bar and great staff.

This is the restaurant at Montana de Fuego resort. The restaurant overlooks a ranch, beyond which is Arenal, so a great view (if the weather allows). I found the food to be good, the service excellent. When staying at the resort, breakfast is included. A generally simple buffet-style breakfast, with a station for omelettes. Had dinner there one evening, found... More

Disliked the surcharges. Service was good. Breakfast was in need of variety - omelet station fair. Slightly overpriced and one physical complaint was the tiles in the restaurant were bordering on dangerous- too slippery.

I can't believe there aren't more reviews for this restaurant...especially with the limited dining options in this area. Over our 10 day stay in various regions within Costa Rica, I think this was my favorite meal. We stopped in for lunch one day and were so glad we did. We were greated by our very friendly waiter and seated right... More
