Nice quick dinner spot...

We stopped in here on our last night in Costa Rica after a long drive from Arenal. It's an open-air palapa along the main drag south of Liberia and near the airport. The location makes it convenient if your coming from or going to the airport or one of the rental car places. Wood-fired chicken... read more

The food was just ok, but the location just outside Liberia Airport was nice. It's right next to the Budget Rental Car. Prices are reasonable - was about $35 US for 2 entrees for us.

What concerned me was upon paying by credit card, my card was not returned. I... More

I have eaten in La Choza de Laurel in La Fortuna, Arenal, numerous times, and I have NEVER been disappointed. I live in CR most of the year. I consider myself picky where I eat, and I have had numerous dishes, casados, chicken, pasta at their location in La Fortuna. It was the first time I ate at their restaurant... More

I went to Costa Rica Janaury 2013 and stayed at a resort close to Nosara. I flew into Liberia then spent the next week trying various Casado plates across the roughly 135km stretch between Liberia and Playa Carrillo. Granted I tried other foods but, the Casado plate for lunch became as much a staple to me as Gallo Pinto for... More

This place is very convenient once you leave the Airport and you are hungry. However, the food is not the greatest and the prices are I bit high. Lots of room, but the food is not so hot.

We had a really good meal for a fair price here a couple of weeks ago. I wish I could remember what the fried rice thing I had was called because it was so good. I think it had volcan in the name. We had good ceviche and nachos. My husband doesn't like flan and even he liked their coconut... More
