This is under new ownership. Previous owner has opened Pizza Place below the location and serves up a very tasty pizza. I don't have much to say about the place upstairs. Not many folks go there anymore.

We sat on a first floor balcony overlooking the street. The food was reasonably priced. The food and service were good and there was no pressure on customers to rush. This a basic bar and eatery but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

It's a little upstairs bar/eatery. We had three different meals and were all good. Prices are around $8 to $9 which is fairly good for Costa Rica, Service is normal for Costa Rica, none. Chicken fried steatk is very good, Makes me think I am home in MO.

I love their chicken fried steak and the ribs on Sunday afternoons. Fun place where you can have a quiet afternoon drink or party later on that night.

Nothing to dislike here. Food delicious and very reasonably priced and perhaps the nicest thing about this restaurant, it's quality and varied menu, not to mention it's convenience to our apartment less than two blocks away, are the wonderful girls who work here. Jaierda, Anna, Zaida and Natalia - they just don't get any better than this and most of... More
