Nice meal

Very good casado, friendly and prompt service, nice clean restaurant. You can eat outside. Located in the local mall. Not the cheapest.

Great, authentic Costa Rican cuisine at a very reasonable price. Lots of choice on the menu for everyone. Had homemade guacamole and tortilla chips, followed by a burrito. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were very friendly.

Recommended this restaurant by our hotel owner. Went for dinner and was not disappointed. Nice views from the outside seating area overlooking the town and the cloud forest. Food was very good and great portion sizes. Really nice to try some of the local foods; I had the vegetarian Casado which was amazing.

While still being authentic, it had more variety and a more modern atmosphere than your average soda. I had the chalupa pollo, 2,680 colones ($5.18 USD), which was delicious and quite a bit of food! My boyfriend had the papas y bistek (steak and fries) which was 3,540 colones ($6.85 USD), and he loved his as well!

It was the location that attracted us to Sabor Tico. A few minutes stroll from our hotel (Monteverde Lodge) and with a great view across town. We arrived at the same time as a good amount of other people, including a group, and as such the staff seemed a bit run off their feet and the service was initially quite... More

The guy at our hotel recommended this place to us. Sabor Tico was pretty cheap with pretty good food. I got the chicken fajitas which were good and flavourful and fresh watermelon juice which was SO good and so much cheaper than I'd ever find it at home. It was our first day in Costa Rica and we had no... More
