The food was very good and yummy. For Asians, the rice is the closest to fried rice and will satisfy your palette if you are craving for rice with flavors. I will definitely return again.

Nice place to eat a typical food. No air conditioner and many bugs in the place but nice to meet local people.

The place has a great location - you will see both the downtown and the Pacific ocean! Food prices are surprisingly cheap! Cheaper than any soda or restaurant we tried here! And food is just delicious! Try their craft beer. It has great flavorful taste!

The prices are around $5-$8 per dish but comes with a lot of food. We found this place to be the best food for the price in Monteverde. If you check out the prices on their photos of the menu just divide the price by 568.5... More
