Good food and good prices. There are two restaurants- one in town and the other on the road. Very Tico food at very good price

We love local food and have had so many wonderful dishes in CR...but this was not the case in our trip to Sabor Tico. Would not return.

Typical Costa Rican restaurant with relaxed atmoshere and reasonable prices. Just order a cassado or a hamburger with french fries, nothing fancy.

We visited the Soda part of Sabor Tico, which is across from a school soccer field. Everything we ate was delicious!

This place has good: solid food, not expensive, plentiful portions. I had the sea bass casado and it was very good (for a casado). Definitely recommend this place.

My wife and I ate here after exploring Santa Elena and the Monteverde Plaza. She just ordered a quesadilla which ended up having a delicious sauce on it. I ordered the grandmother's chicken casado. The chicken was a tiny-bit overcooked (I see other reviewers have had the same experience) but it really wasn't that bad. Overall the meal was awesome... More

The food was really good. And if you go to the frog pond first you can get a coupon (you can walk to sabor tico from the frog pond). Its in a new building but very authentic Costa Rican food. Try the Arrozo con leche (rice pudding) for desert, its so good! And I think they had the best chicken... More

Great selection of typical Costa Rican grub for a great price. Wish I had asked them to leave off the ketchup and mayo on my dish but figured I would try it as the locals eat. Not my favorite flavor haha. But everything was well prepared and presented nicely.
