This was by far one of the best meals I enjoyed while in Costa Rica for the month. The food was tasty, the portions were large, and the price was very reasonable. It was raining real hard on the day we went so the view was not great. There is outdoor seating as well as indoor. The service was not... More

The food was "meh" at best, but the service was what I had a real issue with. The night we went there were maybe three people on staff, and our server couldn't even remember the water we asked for! Our drinks took forever and the food was nothing special. I've had better at roadside sodas - and for a nice... More

We've gone twice in 3 days and would definitely go again! Very big menu with plenty of choices including American classics and more local options. Both times we've gotten "bebidas naturales" and all the flavors we have tasted have been exceptional! They have indoor seating as well as covered outdoor seating. Highly recommended!

Nothing to write home about. Service was good, food not. We got the food fast but it all tasted the same.

The food was great! A very large selection of food for a soda. Try the pork fajita's, the sauce was yummy! Only drawback is the service is very slow. Only two people and a large amount of tables and people to serve. Not too good with drink refills...

We had this place on our list and then people kept telling us to that they heard from locals that it was recommended. Very good food. Simple, vegetarian food --- cassado and arroz vegetariano -- but really hit the spot. We went to the location in the "mall" so the ambiance was nothing special but the food was solid.

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.
