Interesting atmosphere, good service, great food!

A friend and I were visiting Costa Rica for work and someone who lived in the area recommended this as a top restaurant to visit in Liberia. It was a good choice -- the restaurant has an interesting atmosphere -- open air (covered), tree growing in the middle of one of the decks, and a view of a... read more

Well prices lunch for the hungry employees in Liberia center. Good pizza and nice garden corner under the big Guanacaste tree.

My husband and I felt so happy to have discovered this wonderful little spot. Located on a busy downtown corner, the atmosphere inside was surprisingly comfortable and cool. The menu had so many good things but my husband ordered the Daily Special and I ordered a variety of tapas. The fish fingers were out-of-this world!! If I had room I... More

....but we didn't care for this place. My meat (the day's special) was gristly and tough. Expensive for the price and quality. Nice atmosphere, deck built around huge tree.

Four of us stopped here on our way to a weekend business meeting. My colleagues knew the place, and it's clear why it's among their favorites in the area. The restaurant is open air (covered) and very pleasant. Service was prompt and accommodating. English menus are available for those who prefer them. We all had salads and pizzas -- everything...

I ALWAYS come by when I have to work in the area, food is always fresh, pizzas out of the oven, fresh seafood and first quality meat cuts are among the things that always bring me back. Service is also very good, and you have to try their signature "Jauja on Fire" cocktail! Chef´s always asking for feedback which means... More

The pizza was awesome, any fish plates great! There is a tree right inside the restaurant by the front entrance. The owner came to see us both times we were there and chatted with us about food and how he got to buy his restaurant. Was very interesting. You can also see him cook behind a glass wall. Actually all... More

on our last day in Costa Rica we explored Liberia. The area we explored was definitly not for tourists as no one could speak english at all. We tried to find food and came across this restaurant. And I am so glad we found it. It was definitely the best restaurant we tried in Costa Rica. They actually cooked their... More

Went in for a couple of beers (at a very good price) and ended up having the best Flat Iron Steak I've ever had. Can't wait to go back.
