Locals choice near the park in La Fortuna

Recommended by a local-so our favorite kind of place to try. Chips and pico are great! Pastries in the glass case were really good. Rice and chicken was good. Pizza is just ok. There is also a cafeteria style line with many local dishes. Service was good. Very casual place that hit the spot... read more

Definitely not the best pizzeria nor restaurant in La Fortuna. The pizza dough is nothing special and the toppings are scarce. We are not going back

Came here on the recommendation of our Costa Rican guide. Patrons mixed between "locals" and some tourists. Nice and quick service , HUGE hamburger, and my garlic chicken was quite good, but oily. Drinks are good. Overrall, average local joint, with Costa Rican cuisine. Certanly not gourmet.

A good place to stop by. Tasty typical dishes, we had a delicious "casado" , pretty good service, when our dish arrived late the server apologized. Good prices for what you get.

We stumbled upon this place while walking through Fortuna and we were very happy that we did. My husband and I both got Casada (vegatarian for me and chicken for him). It was the best casada we had the entire time we were in Costa Rica! We loved the mashed yuca and you can't beat the price.

I got a pizza, I must say that it looked more like a crepe extended, I'm all for a thing crust, but not a paper crust. The taste was good.

We wandered in here even though we wanted to go to soda vizquez which we had visited 2 days before (and was excellent!) but they were out of beer and we needed one after cerro chato. My fish was dry and my boyfriends pizza was greasy. I only ate 2 bites of my meal and pushed it aside. The manager... More

Sat at a long communal table open to the outdoors. Order was up very quickly, tasted just fine and was a meager $6USD.

We went there and ordered some pizzas. They were not really pizzas like we knew from europe, there was only cheese on the top and no tomatoes or mashed tomatoes. It was also very loud because the street is near and 2 TVs are running all the time. Price was OK. Die Pizza war das, was man in DE/CH einen... More

We had dinner here on Tuesday, January 27, 2015. The food was cheap (less than $20 for 2 people). Sadly , out of all the places we ate at during our stay this was the worst. Portions were good but the food was lacking.
