Simply a must to visit to have a great test of the best Costa Rican typical dishes. The service is good and really fast! The tortilla de Queso is a tasty delight with a good coffee or Agua dulce

Service was OK, time of waiting for the dish around 15minutes. We share a family dish of different meats, rice, patacones, etc, among 3 adults, we couldn't eat everything. Too greasy for my taste... Costa Rican food is less greasy. The beers were warm, we asked for cold glasses but they didn't have... Overall the restaurant is ok but a... More

Our family has been visting this restaurant for years. We almost always stop on the way down after a trip to the Irazu Volcano. It is slightly pricy, but the food is fantastic. The meat is always tender and flavorful. Everything we have tried is good. For a great sampler try the "parrillada campesina", which comes with fried plantains ("patacones"),... More

Nice rustic atmosphere, good food, large portions. Caters to locals and tourists visiting Irazu volcanoe. Love their Chifrio, best in the area.

It ended up being a good option. Really... More

Little pricey but very good. I go there often. Try the Pozol and patacones. I enjoy the grill as well. The coffee is brewed traditionally too.

We visited at the suggestion of our tour guide. Total of five people for lunch. The selection was large. Our plates were split between typical Costa Rican food with Marlin, and typical food with Chicken. It was all very well prepared and delicious. Service was attentive. An English menu is available if you request it. Stop was less than an... More

After visiting the Irazu Volcano, we stopped at Mi Tierra for breakfast. We had the gallo pinto, scrambled eggs, plantain, sausage, cheese, tortillas, coffee and tea. The food was tasty. We especially enjoyed the spicy sausage. It had a little bit of a spicy kick without being overpowering. We also enjoyed the friendly and attentive service.
