I've travelled Costa Rica for over three months and this is definitely one of the best places where I've had dinner. Excellent ceviche, good mains and by far the best dessert in the country! Ambience, service and personality add to the experience. Sadly no alcohol served but it's worth the sacrifice!

Read the reviews and decided to give cafe Liberia a trial. Our family of 5 arrived for dinner and was very impressed with the charming restaurant, the great ambiance, the excellent food and the friendliness of the chef and his wife Ligia. Great ceviche, seafood, hamburger, pAsta and lava cake and more!!!

Tasty food and reasonably priced. Just a couple blocks from the PanAm highway. Not too many diners the night I was there.

The place is in a old house and owned by a french cook and his wife. She was very gentle. The food is good, not too much expensive (5000 crc or 10 us for a 3 cheeses sandwich with salad) we had also fresh juices, the best one was pina colada The only thing I was disappointed is that my... More

We stopped in for a light lunch and glass of wine. Easy parking on the street. Interesting building--some nice photo ops. Excellent service. Very good-fresh-ceviche and tasty pommes frites. Will return for a larger meal.
