Had lunch here twice during our visit to Iguana Lodge. The food was very good and service was good for a large group. Chicken casados, fish plate and nachos were good. Fresh lemonade was refreshing on a hot day. Prices were very reasonable.

I had breakfast and it was good couple of fried eggs and some fresh fruit For $3.50 Hang out for coffee in the morning with friends. The prices are a little bit above the sodas in town , but great places for people watching .

Not that expensive, regular food, but the service is terrible and sometimes they give you trash! I ask for beef and they bring me something that more than 50% of that was imposible to eat. Very bad quality beef.
