A beautiful rustic restaurant in the mountains of Heredia. A restaurant and museum in one. Great look into the past while savoring the present. Food is good and fresh.

A quite big restaurant located in the uphill part of Heredia is mostly characterized by its museum-like collection of old radios, sewing machines, typers etc. and a pretty nice view. It also has a large playground and huge tables for bigger gatherings.
