This is not a big restaurant so you may have to wait for a table, but its worth the wait. They have a small menu and everything on it was very good. I personally ordered the steak on 2 occassions and it was great. As a whole we asked for an appetizer of Fried Yucca which is not on the... More

Good - Inexpensive and real Costa Rican food Bad - So-so quality and over-cooked with non-attentive staff.

My husband and I ate lunch here for probably around $12 total - and it was absolutely delicious. We ate at tons of sodas during our 10 days trip to CR and this was the best local food we had. Strongly recommended!

We spent a few weeks in Santa Elena area and kept coming back to Donde Henry's again and again. Everything was tasty. The food was always fresh. I liked the cafeteria style - you could choose exactly what you wanted and how much of it. It was simple food, good food - comida tipica - and hit the spot. The... More

Great place for quick, cheap, and filling meals. The food is served buffet style, although you tell them which items you want. They have a huge variety of typical foods with several meat dishes. We got a huge meal with beverages for less than $10 each. Definitely worth visiting, especially for families.

This resturant is a diamond in the rough!!! Its down a little alleyway driveway but you can see their sign from the road. We ate at this place for lunch and dinner, there was always a variety and the food was priced very cheap compared to the local resturants that were priced way up there. If you eat here, use... More
