Recommend to us by a local, this place was the perfect find. Hard to find dishes you could normally only get in a Tico home. Had the house Tamales, Arachete, and a pork appetizer the name of which escapes me. All excellent!

The food at Sabor Tico is very good. I recommend getting the guacamole - you will receive more guac than you have chips for! Most excellent.

Ate a number of meals here and every one was delicious! The fruit smoothies were also wonderful. An easy walk from the Monteverde Lodge.

Great value for the money. Much cheaper than restaurants in town center. The food is local and authentic and reasonably priced. The next day, we went to the Tree House and wished we would have come back here instead. Also across the street from the delightful ChocoCafe.

After visiting the Selvatura park, we enjoyed some local fare at Sabor Tico. The ceviche was the best we've had in Costa Rica; the fried yuca was delicious; the chorizo 'snack' with tortilla was awesome. The pork dinner (#40) was chewy.....otherwise this would be a 5 rating! Would highly recommend!

The restaurant is bright and cheery and the staff were very friendly! Prices were reasonable too! We would highly recommend eating here during your... More

We had a great and inexpensive dinner. We visited the location in the plaza on the edge of town beside the bus station. The restaurant is upstairs. We were there just as the sun set over the Pacific - very nice view. November is low season so the restaurant wasn't too busy - us and about six tables of locals.... More

We ate at the one located in the new mall area near downtown. The prices were reasonable and the food was good. We sat out on the patio overlooking the town and we were barely able to finish our meals. Highly recommended.

Went there for dinner and enjoyed it. The food is quite nice, prices are moderate and service is excellent. Come early and get a table with a nice view over the city on their balcony.

Some of the best authentic food I had while in Costa Rica. There are two locations in Monteverde and both provided large portions for an excellent price. They have a large menu with a variety of authentic meals in Costa Rica, as well as an extended version with more Westernized dishes. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant was... More
