"Tasty and yummy Costa Rican Food"

A great place to enjoy a lot of different Costa Rican récipes and dishes. Portion sizes are good and food quality is very good. Parking might become a problema if there are too many visitors.

Love it! They were really nice and friendly, my boyfriend an I were so hungry and we were impressed how fast the food was served, and this did not decrease the quality of the food, it was fantastic. We ate beef with bacon and corn, love it, the only thing I didn't like was the noise because we sat on... More

You may have to wait at Mi Tierra but it's worth it. Large dining rooms with plenty of helpful staff. (There was also live music on the patio.) The Casado combo served five of us with a little left over. (We did have to wait a bit on an extra order of tortillas.) On the large platter were chicken, chicharones,... More

Went to this restaurant for lunch food was good. Prices are not that bad we spent like $40 for two of us that's including beer. The tip is included in the ticket so be aware of this. But over all the food was not bad nice place to eat. They take credit cards and cash

I was invited to Cartago by a good friend and she suggested this restaurant. The restaurant is located outside of the downtown area of Cartago, so you will need to hire a taxi or have a car to get here. I was really looking forward to the view my friend raved about, however, they have close their patio and a... More

We ordered three differente meals, and they were great. This food is completely from Costa Rica, and that's what we were looking for. Our meals were really big aswell, we could barely finish because it was a lot of food. Service was nice, and place was clean. If you're close to Cartago, this is a good choice.

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
