Good selection and tasty. You can sit on the balcony and watch the sunset . As it can get chilly at night, it features heaters to keep you warm.

I went on a recommendation and wasn't disappointed. I had the monk fish in garlic butter for a main course which was delicious. Then I had rice pudding to finish and it was very good. The atmosphere was not great but the food was good and very reasonably priced.

We at the branch that is next to the soccer field. We thought the food was not good at all. The other branch near the bus station seemed to have many more customers-not sure if the menu is different there.

This restaurant was recommended by a biologist at the Cloud Forest Reserve and she was bang-on. Great food and awesome service. Had to sit inside because it was a bit too cold and windy outside on the patio

We had our first dinner in Costa Rica at Sabor Tico and we really enjoyed it. The food was fresh, delicious and the service was great and friendly. The prices were very affordable. It is few minutes drive from downtown, but totally worth it!
