Good Fried Fish

I have been here a few times for lunch with a friend of mine. I normally get the fried fish platter with french fries and a salad. It is a bit skimpy as far as the portion is concerned but the food has always been tasty.

Last Sunday night I sent some clients there for dinner as they said they wanted to go to a local place with good food and service. I even called ahead to find out what time their kitchen closed which was at 8:30pm. They left Cariari area about 6:45pm for a $10 taxi ride ($20 round trip) to enjoy a lovely... More

We ordered the shrimp cerviche, chicken and rice, beef with shrimp and a coconut flan and a cafe negro.. We also ordered a passion fruit smoothie. Everything we ate there was soo tasty and delicious. We were very satisfied and it only cost us about $48 which is not bad for the amount of food we bought.

Went here last weekend and was very satisfied. Ordered salmon with veggies and pasta with shrimp. The service was excellent, very customer oriented. The place is nice and clean, with a cozy environment. The price we paid was fair for the serving we had. We would go back for sure!

We have been going to Kiantis for years...locally owned...local foods...Our two favorites are the breaded large shrimp in a basket....and the Baby Beef...which is a delicious farm raised local tenderloin... There are other great dishes...such as "arroz con pollo" and chicken cordon blue...The prices are extremely reasonable at least half as much as the Marriott which is 5 minutes away...Caveat... More

We went here looking for one last good meal in Costa Rica before returning to the states. Our hotel was overpriced and the food was quite blah. My husband and i started with the ceviche and it was great. For dinner we had the chicken and rice and the shrimp and rice. Both were excellent. The meal itself cost us... More
