I am a sucker for a soda - for me the smaller and grubbier the better! I will say, after the reviews on TripAdvisor we kept going to the OLD location. Um, no. it's across the streetish from Robins. NOT across the main street next to car rental. ANYWAY the food was quick and cheap but just good for me,... More

The only authentic soda in Guiones so a must visit for anyone who wants real Costa Rican food. You'll find many local workers here for lunch which is always a good sign of good food and good prices. Rosie still cooks all the food herself and her dishes are delicious! Tip: if you like spicy food ask for the jar... More

Easy walk in and grab a table for some traditional Costa Rican food and a smoothie at this small cafe. Well priced. Only a few staff so not the best if you are in a rush. Outdoor eating. The fish is excellent.

Most amazing huevos rancheros EVER! This was the perfect spot for a nice breakfast, and a cool slushy iced tea. (didn't even know those existed) Will happily revisit next time we're in the area!

Best breakfast you will ever eat. I would highly recommend the homemade banana pancakes and a smoothie. It takes a little longer than most restaurants, but it is well worth the extra 5 or 10 minutes to get something made from scratch right behind the counter.

Good food and the prices were reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area. Steak casado and banana drink were tasty.

Rosi's was recommended by the staff at my retreat center. The menu is limited but the food is tasty and the atmosphere is authentic. The staff speaks very little English but was happy to work with my broken Spanish. I ate my sandwich and Coke (in a bottle!) along side tourists, surfers, and local workers.

This place is tiny and gets full, but worth it. Reasonable prices authentic Tico food. Tacos, soups, salads rice dishes and so on. My wife and I had tasty meals and fruit drinks. Rosi's fish tacos my have the Surf Dog beat. All made in an incredibly tiny kitchen. There's not much room for ambiance, like I said tiny, but... More

Had a hard time finding it, drove by several times, its just across from the cafe de Paris. It was good, but not amazing, breakfast is breakfast.
