Very typical, everyone who lives in Belén has been here. The food is delicious and the place is okay. It's kind of expensive.

Want a classical good value Costa Rican meal, where the locals go? Try Pollos del Monte in Belen (close to the airport). They have a wide menu, mainly chicken of course, though nothing special. Probably best to go for their special plates - typically two pieces of chicken, with rice, beans and platanos. Goes great with beer or the local... More

This place is more like a historical rotisserie rather than a gourmet one, so you have to keep that in mind when visiting, everything taste the same and portions are irregular.

The ambience is nice and the chicken is cooked over an open fire. The flavor is average and sides are ok. Nothing superb.

We normally get Pollos del Monte via delivery and love it. The portions are generous, the delivery service is speedy, and the food is excellent. We've been to the restaurant once - it was a bit noisy on a Friday night with all the traffic, but we were enchanted by a big tree in the parking lot filled with chirping... More

I have come to Pollo del Monte for years now. It has the reputation of being the best place to eat roast chicken in all of Costa Rica. Last night was a complete disappointment. Our chicken got to us in less than 5 minutes. Cold. Dry. Boring. We had ordered a side-dish of fried yucca. The yucca was yummy but... More

Pollos del monte is a very good choice for a quick tasty lunch. Most dishes can be shared between two people as they are very large. It is unexpensive and has children sizes as well. Good service.

The restaurant sits next to a well-paved road at about 1500 meter elevation north of Heredia. The signature dish of the restaurant is fire-roasted, whole chickens which are delicious to eat and especially delicious to skip the forks and just insert chunks of the chicken in a corn tortilla with some jalapenos and washed down with a cold Imperial beer....

I frequently work on the outskirts of San Jose at La Aurora Global Park, and with the friends I have made get to visit some places off the beaten path. Pollo del Monte is one of my favorite places for typical food. Their patacones con guacamole are addicting, especially fresh and hot, and their chicken, however you want it prepared... More
