Went for a vegan dinner, we were the only people in the restaurant and it took 45 minutes for my husband to get his meal and then my meal came about a hour later. The service is the worst I have experienced, I had to get up and go to the bar to get my own drink. Will NEVER go... More

Read the great reviews on here so went along for dinner as it was next to where we were staying. We were the only people in there, it was low season. The staff were very friendly but the food was average & very small for what it was.

This place was great! So unexpected in such a funky small town. If they have the eggplant Parmesan...definitely get it. its awesome and i'm not an eggplant fan. i had the gnocci and it was great. Dessert was kind of funky but a nice try.

Perhaps I expect too much from a veggie restaurant. I understand that ingredients are hard to come by and can be expensive but then why attempt to put a round peg in a square hole? The food lacked creativity and flavor. But, having read the fiery and defensive responses of the owner/chef (?) in other comments on this page, part... More

We ate here for our anniversary dinner. Although we are not vegetarian, the delicious and creative menu greatly appealed. Do not miss the opportunity to eat here!

The food here is to die for and the service was friendly and personalized. We ordered three dishes and they were equally amazing even for my partner who is not a vegetarian. This is a MUST DO!!!

Costa Rica is a pretty easy country to be a vegetarian in, so the appeal of an all vegetarian restaurant is not as strong as it would be in another country where meat is more prominent. I got the plantain lasagna which was way too sweet, and my girlfriend got the gnocchi which was nothing special. The prices were very... More

Having learned not to expect fast service in small places, we ordered several appetizers to avoid being famished when our mains arrived. The grilled aubergine and courgette were lovely (although swimming in oil, so not a good option for those on a diet), but we only got 3 slices of each. Then came the yucca croquettes - just 2, smallish.... More

First time in Costa Rica, looking for veggie options and this quaint little spot didn't disappoint. Fits in perfectly with the laid back pace and life style common in Samara. I had 4 cheese gnocchi, my wife had the plantain lasagne, both were tasty and filling. Our server was friendly, helpful, polite, absolutely adoreable, and one heck of a salsa... More
