Food tasted OK, was more unique than the other places we ate in Monteverde so I assume it must be more traditional food. We went to the new location and it was very clean with a bright atmosphere. Haven't given it more than 3/5 mainly because the food wasn't to my taste.

Nothing extraordinary here, but just good food, casados, etc. It was one of our favorite places in Santa Elena, with good prices.

We stay at a hotel not far away from the restaurant in the shopping center. We love all of their fruit drinks. The setting and view were also very nice. Food is typical Costa Rican dish and they are very reasonably priced. We had dinner twice. The waiter is nice and speak English which make our life easier.

Good price, great food, good portions! I'd say the rice dishes are the tastiest! We ate here most of the trip because we couldn't beat the taste and value.

Great place to have the real Costa Rican food in the Monteverde Cloud Forest area. We've eaten in their two locations and both times we enjoyed it. Very extensive menu, reasonable prices, tasty juices to go along with food. Would definitely recommend!

We went to Sabor Tico for lunch and had a Casado's. They were really tasty and huge - great value for money. The restaurant was located in the new plaza, a short walk from the 'main' Santa Elena town. Worth the walk!

This restaurant is in a new area in Santa Elena somewhat outside of the center. When we arrived the restaurant was empty and we thought that probably the food could not be that good. We were wrong. The food was excellent and after 30 minutes the restaurant was full even with locals! Always a good reference

We'd been travelling for a while and just fancied a treat, this was it. not quite rock bottom prices but food more than justified it. If i could only revisit one restaurant in CR, this would be it.
