Amazing local cuisine at a great price

Ask your cab driver to take you here. You won't regret it! Get a cosada! They are very tourist friendly and the food is incredible.

My friend and I have been traveling through Costa Rica and we were obsessed with soda viquez. We had fish casados and fish plates both times we went and everything was delicious. Yucca mash will change your life.

This is a diamond in the rough…the staff are friendly, food is great…casados are huge portions and inexpensive. Loved the whole experience. My 3 kids loved it too and they are picky. Definitely go here!

3000 mil colones for a big Casado plate plus some extra salad I wanted. The manager genuinely cared about my food and service I received.

This place was recommended by a couple of local people for its quality and value and we definitely agreed with them. We had the local "casados" which is comprised of your choice of meat plus rice, beans , sweet plantains and salads. We... More

It's an inexpensive place to dine for breakfast, lunch or dinner or all three! The food is very tasty and the portions are just right! it's located just off the main road going through La Fortuna. It's just quiet enough to be at peace and enjoy a good meal.

Great food at a great price. The portion size for the Casado was really big. The service was great. Friendly staff and clean location. I would definitely recommend to try a tipico plate from CR. And the price can't be beat!
