We had 2 fantastic meals at Miss Miriam's. Dinner was great, the meats were tender and superbly spiced. The sides were served family style, very generous portions. We also had breakfast at Miss Miriam's. As a family of four backpacking our way through central America budget is always on our minds so we order a bit less this time and... More

We had lunch on a Sunday while watching the soccer game. We ordered the Caribbean chicken and it was delicious! Real Caribbean flavors, really loved it. The chicken came with Rice and Beans, patacones and salad, so much we couldn't eat everything. Friendly service and a good price. Go here for real Caribbean food!

We went here upon recommendation of the front desk lady at our hotel. Strangely enough, Tuesday isn't a good day to eat out in Tortugero (a lot of places are closed).  We were hungry, and tired from the bus journey from San Jose, so we just wanted food. The place is next to the soccer field and the two ladies... More

The food was delicious. I had chicken in Caribbean spices, plantains, two types of rice and a salad. The prices were reasonable and the staff was very friendly.

We had our first lunch here and enjoyed the food, the location, the staff and the atmosphere. We sat out the rain, drank beers, and had a fabulous fish, chicken and gallo/patacones and salad lunch. The staff were really friendly and everything tasted like expertly cooked homemade food...

My wife and I had both the chicken with Caribbean sauce and we were both a little bit disappointed. This location advertises "with Caribbean flavor", but this is actually what's missing. The sauce and rice did not stand out from any instant product. + fast service + portions big enough to satisfy our hunger - no Caribbean (our any special)... More

Although a very modest place, Miss Miriam´s serves very good food, specially fresh fish (catch of the day) and excellent "patacones" (fried green plantains). Very nice ladies attending your requests...

We enjoyed sitting outside at one of the 2 tables on the front patio. It's on the Futbol field (soccer field) and we caught a local game while we ate. We had the Caribbean Chicken. So yummy! Other dishes we saw looked great too! Wasn't a bad price, 4,500. About average for a dinner around town.
