Now La Terazza Restaurant. Under new ownership. The food is the same. Drink prices are double most other local places. No longer the hang out for expats and most folks go next door. I miss the place as do most ex pats, but we have moved on.

Service was acceptableand tended to be the best part. Food was tasteless but moderately priced...Corvina filete with veggies $6.50. Loud and obnoxious expats hanging out drinking and professional ladies in and out.

This is a restaurant review and not a review of Hotel Chirripo. The outdoor terrace of Hotel Chirripo has one of the best locations in all of San Isidro de El General. It faces the main square with the imposing cathedral and the newly designed city park. The place is absolute best when it comes to people watching since there... More
