We went here because it looked cool on the outside! But the food was terrible! They don't know how to cook! Don't get steak! Bad service! Waiter said a drink was $5 and it was $17 on the bill. I would never go here again!!

We ordered the Lomo Saltado and ceviche. Both dishes tasted delicious but were a little too expensive. The atmosphere was very nice and they were very friendly.

Very expensive, average food, frozen fish not vet well cooked. Better to go to a non touristic place

La Fortuna is full of roadside restaurants. We chose this place because there were other cars there. The place seemed clean. My husband ordered scallops (hindsight we were a ways from the ocean) it was terrible. My arroz con pollo was way to salty.. our bill had gratutity and a charge for using credit on it. not even being warned... More

the menu looks great, I wish the food was 1/4 as good as the presentation everything came out cold and undercooked.. the hosted thing on the plate was the rice and even that was raw.... the place looks beautiful from. outside, keep driving

4 people in our party ordered Paella; it was probably the worst we've ever had; not fresh. One person ordered a "hamburger" as we had been eating for Costa Rican food for more than a week. The hamburger was horrible; two frozen meat patties with a piece of deli ham on top. Ugh. Sorry, but I would not recommend this... More

The service was great, the food was ok (but I'm not a fan of Costa Rican food) the atmosphere was great. I would eat there again.

It's not the fanciest Peruvian restaurants in CR but I think is The Peruvian in La Fortuna. Food was very good also the service. The fish ceviche and the lomo salteado were great. Also for kids the fish nuggets a great option.

When I got there I was the only one in the restaurant. The waiter came to my table to ask for my order and once the food was ready he took it to the table and he never came back. I had to go to him to ask for everything else. Food was very overpriced for what they offer, nothing... More

The food was good, but the prices are too high for the food you get. Attention was not good either, despite the fact that there were only three tables with people at the time we got dinner.
