After reading the reviews here I decided to try the famous pupusas. The place is simple, but nice, service is good and it's nice to watch the woman cook in front of you. The pupusas weren't that special to me, but good food and cheap. Might come back.

Chero's is one our favorite local restaurants. Right now the World Cup is on and we're having so much fun watching the games and eating the best papusas. Chero and his wife own the place and are always there making sure everything is great. the carrot slaw is so good! It's a must of you are in Pana. Small friendly... More

We ate a quick lunch yesterday after coming from a boat ride on the lake. We got caught in a rain storm. But I told the family let's go to here the kids enjoyed it after being so tired of with black beans and tortillas... But everything was excellent!! Will definitely return!! Thank YOU!!

We loved Cheros! The food was excellent and the service was great! We're vegetarian and that wasn't an issue at all! Doors open at noon....but they don't really open at noon, so come a little later than that. The wait for them to open is well worth it.

Visit Cheros when you're in Pana. It's a 10-15 min boat ride from La Fortuna and a 5 minute walk into town. The most delicious pupusas, make sure to ask for the one with Loroco (if it's in season, as they only start to get it around May) and prepare to have your mind blown. Loroco is a pumpkin blossom...

This food was delicious and worth the wait. The atmosphere is friendly and it doesn't try to hide under a bunch of fluff. The drinks are good and cheap and the owners made our group of students feel very welcomed. I wish I had one of these next door to my house!
