Nice little restaurant good food. Only thing was we had to ask multiple times for our check because we have been ready but we think boss lady just wanted us to sit there longer to draw in more customers and show they aren't empty. Still good food and price. Will recommend.

Very good local food, excellent fresh fruit juice with milk, but expect long line and slow service due to popularity.

My boyfriend and I randomly came here after our cab driver dropped us off, saying this was the best place to eat. We had been to 2 other soda's in town and this was our favorite. Sea bass on the grill and Argentinian churrasco steak are recommended and come with garlic bread and a small rice pudding for dessert. Portions... More

Great little restaurant with the best prices in La Fortuna! Fabulaous food and fabulous "Refrescos". Don't miss the "coco refresco" it was like desert. I could have drank 10 of them. Wished we ate here for every meal!

most guides recommend this place. It's small and can get really hot and stuffy. The portions are generous but I enjoyed the food at the El Rio(around the corner) better.

We had the sea bass and Tico casados. Both were very tasty and worth the experience. We highly recommend it.

Wandering down the back street we nearly missed this place - being on a budget the inexpensive menu caught our eyes - as it turned out the food was amazing...... sea bass casada!!! Wow a winner - the hostess made us feel extremely welcome with a complementary appetiser and desert......... not to be missed

My boyfriend and I wanted a cheap but good feed after a long day hiking Arenal volcano. We nearly walked past this place but headed in to look. Everyone had huge plates of food and there was a of of people eating - Always a good sign! We opened the menu and couldn't believe the low prices. We each ordered... More
