This cute family restaurant has both local and international food (pasta and some burgers and sandwiches). We loved the place and the food was very delicious. We ate the Monteverde soup and as the main dish the Carribean sea brass - amazing! Delicious! The staff was so friendly and the prizes are reasonble.

Right in the middle of 'downtown' Santa Elena, this second-story restaurant could be easy to miss as you walk by. We were fortunate to have met a couple when we were in La Fortuna, on our way to Monteverde who had been to this restaurant the night before and highly recommended it. We were very happy for the suggestion and... More

We ordered a soup, fish and spaghetti. After our order was taken that was it until they finally served us almost 2 hours later. The dishes were all a bit on the small side to be honest and the Spaghetti Bolognese was just a tinned tomatoes over pasta with 2 slices of Bimbo bread. Disappointing experience in an otherwise amazing... More

Friendly staff, varied menu and very good food. We ate there after a recommendation and came back the next day because it was that good. We got get the recommendation from the tourist office below, which got us a 10% discount

Awesome food, great waitress, I didn't know when I would propose but this place made it happen. Amazing views of the mountains plus a lightning storm rolled in about 20 miles away. I had steak and she had seafood with coconut sauce. Everything was perfect!

Good service, food ok but nothing special though the fries were amazing and so hot!! Expensive for what it was and wine is a ridiculous price as it is so cheap in the shops

Very tasty meal. I went there for dinner upon a recommendation from a local and was not disappointed. Clean, great service and nice view. It is upstairs so don't miss it. Prices were reasonable.

The food and wine was great but pricey for the area. But that said, it was well worth it. We had appetizer, entree and dessert here and it was all good. The cheese plate had a good variety that paired well with white or red wine. I can't remember much about dessert except that I loved it. :) I would... More
