Great prices

We were directed here by the owner of the hotel where we were staying. He said they had a good variety of food and good prices. This was absolutely true. The food was good, but not amazing. We paid about $13 for two dinners, so no complaint about the price!

We enjoyed the meals here.Breakfasts were copious and the platters of fruit were large. There was good choice of dishes in the evening and the restaurant is popular with locals and tourists alike.

Nothing special, but very convenient and cheap. I would definitely recommend if you're on a budget but there are also lots of other sodas to go to if you're on a budget as well.

I spoke to cashier and only then the... More

We loved this place last year. The location is great, in the middle of town overlooking the park and church. We came here one of our first days in town for lunch and the waiter seemed a bit annoyed to wait on us. It was only my wife and I and my wife speaks spanish so we are pretty easy... More

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 when we were hungry!

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.

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.
