We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday, around 12:30pm. We were the only guests at the time. The parking lot is a bit rough but the pizza we shared was absolutely delicious.

We live in the area and for some reason only recently discovered this amazing gem in Ojochal. Homemade pasta in delicious sauces in beautiful surroundings. The hosts/owners were welcoming, accommodating and very sweet. We will be back to try out the entire menu!

Another favourite for us in Ojochal. Friuti de mar, gnocchi , pastas , all al dente, sauces rich with flavour. We wouldn't pass this up in a CR downpour. We look forward to be there again
