I was disappointed because I'd heard good things about this restaurant. I ordered the daily special, 3 courses for 3,800 colones. The soup starter was very good, the main was edible in parts and the dessert was wholly inedible.

If you are a veggie and are sick of rice and beans this is the place for you. We ate here twice lovely fresh juices and nice food reasonably priced.
