We had a quick lunch here one day, from a recommendation from Christian at the Rainbow Valley Lodge. The empanadas were fantastic and filling, and everything was priced very cheap! Find this hidden spot and try the chicken!!

Stumbled on this place since everyone else was going to the pizza place, and I needed a change. Had an empayada, which was fresh and delicious as was the salad. There's only seating for about four people, but the food was great, and the owner was so friendly. I wish I could speak more Spanish. I would definitely go back.... More

We loved to swing by here and pick up a couple enyucados. The crust is super fluffy and delicious, and the salsa that comes with them is amazing!

This place is very small with about seating for 3 or 4 tops but it's more of a take out then eat in. The price was fair with only a few selection of things to eat which only means the chicken is excellent as that is his specialities and it was, slightly salty but still very good. I would recommend... More

We first had the chicken with tortilla and salsa for 2000 colones ($4 US). It was excellent and the man behind the counter was very friendly. I highly recommend this place to anyone with or without a budget.

Great deal, especially good when you want your food fast and to go; they have only one table. The food was priced well, the food was good, but a bit on the salty side...

Best chicken in town. 2000 colones for some seriously good tasting meat. Absurdly good chimichurri salad to boot. Five stars would recommend

Humble tico-style eating place. There is one table with two chairs. The dish I wanted was not available so I chose the pinto con pollo. Very good. The woman who took my order could have been friendlier.

This hidden gem is a diamond in the rough and my go-to restaurant in Santa Elena for excellent simple food that's so inexpensive it's hard to imagine a cheaper way to eat well (even if you're cooking for yourself).
