This typical Costa Rican restaurant is right in the middle of town and a safe bet for a cheap, quick, delicious lunch. We were able to have a good, filling lunch (Arroz con polo and a plate of grilled pork, salad rice and beans) plus a beer and a large water for under $20 US including tax/service. It is not... More

La Fortuna is very expensive, very touristy. Food everywhere was great. I found this soda... very cheap and the food was great! A lot of locals. Not a five star restaurant but tasted like five stars. I ate there two nights in the row. First time I order a house pizza delicious the whole family stuffed themselves for about $16... More

We stopped here for lunch and have to say this was just okay. My son had the hamburgesa and it was truly huge bigger than my kid's head. My son liked it. My other son had pizza which was okay. I had the garlic chicken which was tasty but I did not get the usuals of rice and beans and... More

It wasn't the best food we had in CR but it hit the spot after a long day and the service was quick and friendly (and quick can be rare in CR). I thought it was a little overpriced for what it was, but you are in a touristy town, so they are priced accordingly.

Food is well priced and location is amazing! During out four day trip to La Fortuna, I have to say that we came to La Parada four times... we had breakfast once, lunch twice, and dinner. Everything we ate here was delicious, and they had TVs which were always showing World Cup games which was very convenient for us. My... More

We got here on the night of Costarica winning over Greece in Brasil Mundial. It was crowded and hot (there are even no fans). The place hasn't got a cosy atmosphere. But besides that they serve good quality food and fair sizes. Our spaghetti with frutti di mare was great, rice with shrimp and spaghetti bologhnese were very good as... More

For such a low price you get what you pay for. Pizza was not good at all. Service was ok. Fast and good manners. Location is the only plus.

Great food, atmosphere is fantastic with a very local feeling, yet accommodating travelers and non spanish speakers very well. I would get the Cansado everyday. The beef tongue is awesome.

Good location but only okay food and service. There are two options: sit down off the menu orders and a quick pre-made option. We didn't realize that until after we had placed our order. Prices were high, but the food was only okay. The staff wasn't very friendly or enthusiastic.
